Dear Familia Fabretto,
As the world experiences the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, my thoughts and prayers turn to you. My sincerest hope is that you and your loved ones remain safe and in good health during these difficult times.
Last Wednesday, Nicaragua reported its first case of COVID-19. Given the situation, Fabretto is taking precautions to safeguard the health of our beneficiaries and staff. This includes handwashing campaigns, distribution of soap and hand sanitizers, and implementing online learning and teleworking. We know that a public health crisis of this magnitude is affecting us all worldwide, and we are doing everything possible to mitigate the negative impact this could have on the children and families in the communities we serve in Nicaragua.
Additionally, to protect our supporters, Fabretto has decided to postpone until further notice both the Friends of Fabretto trip scheduled this month and our annual NYC Night for Niños, usually held in May.
Because this is a quickly-changing situation, we are constantly monitoring new guidelines set by local health authorities, as well as the CDC and WHO. As the situation continues to evolve, we may need to take additional measures.
It is thanks to your unconditional support that we have been able to respond to this and other crises throughout the years in a timely and responsible way. Thank you for staying with us and for being there always. Together, we will get through this.
