“Lumos delivered nearly 50 Emergency Hygiene Kits in Haiti, to separated children last week.” Eugene Jr Guillaume, Lumos Country Director, Haiti
“These are very vulnerable families who are suffering real hardships due to the pandemic, struggling just to scrape together enough money to be able to buy a day’s worth of food. Lumos have been able to provide them with Emergency Assistance during the coronavirus crisis. This means the children will at least have something to eat.” Rosario Del Rio, Country Director for Lumos Colombia

This promise soon evaporated, and Diego was trapped.
