CONCEPCIÓN, HONDURAS – Things have been difficult for Maria Telma since the pandemic began last year. A the virus spread, she and her family were in need of hunger relief in Honduras. As the sole provider for her young daughter, Maria is under a lot of pressure. She works as a for-hire cleaning lady, cleaning client’s homes on a day-to-day basis. Usually, her clientele calls her to request service, and the next day Maria shows up ready to clean. But things have changed drastically due to COVID-19.
Nowadays, Maria’s clients have dwindled dramatically. Most people are justifiably concerned about the spread of the virus. Because of this, most of Maria’s work has dried up due to people being afraid she will bring COVID to their homes. “I am so worried about the situation,” Maria told Operation Blessing staff. “I am doing everything I can to earn money so that my daughter can eat.” Unfortunately, the situation forced Maria and her daughter to ration their food. They were in desperate need of hunger relief in Honduras.
