It is sad to say but, the coronavirus pandemic has put on hold many key events in the fundraising calendar of many organizations that help those in need. Such is the case of some events that we anxiously wait for every year organized during these months by the Fundacion MIR such as the Sugar Bazaar and the Sweets and Treats, but this hasn’t stopped them from continuing their fundraising efforts, while still observing self-isolation rules.

The spread of Covid19 has changed everyday life around the world. The organization has continued educating its students with online classes but with your help, the Fundación MIR will also be able to help the more than 2,000 families that depend on their continued support cover a large part of their basic hygiene, health, and food needs.
