The current health crisis linked to COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the lives of many people, especially in developing countries. Anywhere, because of the measures taken by different countries to slow down the contagion, millions of people find themselves without work and therefore without resources to feed their families. The hygiene rules put in place to prevent the spread of the virus are a severe problem for many people, such as the washing of hands regularly in countries where access to water is difficult for the majority or the quarantine measure when there are more than 6 persons sharing in one room. Faced with the precariousness of life and the urgent need for food, the dilemma for many of them is to choose between starving at home or risking death from coronavirus by going out to earn their daily bread.
Faced with this dilemma, and to avoid a possible humanitarian crisis, another path emerges that depends on us, on you, on me. Indeed, to overcome the spread of the virus in these countries, these populations need our support.
CADIS International, in collaboration with the big Camillian family, is preparing a program of assistance for these vulnerable populations. This program consists of providing food and hygiene kits (pasta, rice, canned goods, oil, drinking water, hydro-alcoholic gel, soap, etc.) to enable them to survive during this period of containment and thus help to close the lines of possible transmission of the contagion, an essential measure to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe.
That’s why CADIS appeals to your generosity to make this project effective and save lives.

May the Lord reward you with His peace and joy. I was hungry, and you gave me food; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. Whatever you do to the least of my brothers, you do it unto me. (Mt. 25: 35, 40).
