Street Kids Direct - News Update March 2020
View this email in your browser
Dear friends, we are living in unprecedented times and we at Street Kids Direct would like to keep our focus on the most vulnerable children and their families in Guatemala and Honduras.

Just over a week ago Duncan travelled to the UK to spend a month speaking and raising funds for the work here.  However, after just a few days Duncan had to make the decision to return to Guatemala.

It was a race against time as the US were closing the country to all flights from the UK and Guatemala was closing its borders at midnight on Monday. Duncan managed to get one of the last flights back and arrived before borders closed. It was hairy at one moment as immigration officials in Guatemala wanted to send him back to Miami when they discovered he had started his journey in the UK. However, being a resident gave him the opportunity to be allowed into the country, but he now has to remain in quarantine for 7 days.

Guatemala and Honduras are both on lock-down and so freedom of movement is limited and our mentoring centre and mentoring and outreach programmes have had to be closed due to government restrictions.

Those who have access to phones can be in daily contact with us and one thing that is coming through loud and clear is that many will struggle in the coming days as shops have closed, public transport now not available and almost all of the families we are helping and those on the streets are getting rather desperate.

We would like to arrange a deal with those we know who can sell us food in bulk here and make up care packages for each of the families we work with. Each package will cost £15 or $20 and we aim to provide one package per family for the next two weeks.  If you think you could help, please watch the video below and then click on the donate link at the bottom.

We will be keeping you posted via our website and via social media and appreciate that these are difficult times for us all.

Once again, thank you for your support and we look forward to being in contact in the New Year with more news and updates.

Happy Christmas, Dunc, Joe and Matt (charity trustees)
 
We have prepared something very special for this family for Christmas this year.

RADIO CHRISTMAS - LAST TWO DAYS!

The last two days of Radio Christmas from Guatemala and Honduras started this morning. Please do support, listen in and encourage Steve, Oli and Dunc in their 12 Days of Christmas broadcasts from Central America.



Thanks to the very generous support of two supporters we are able to offer a matching fund for this year's Radio Christmas appeal for Street Kids Direct.
 
Please do consider a gift this Christmas knowing that your gift will be doubled up to a limit of £10,000.  This will apply to donations that come through our US giving site and the UK site.  Help us double our impact during the coming year.
