Migrant workers, providing fruits and vegetables to UK supermarkets, have been confined to the cramped settlements in Southern Spain where they live by recent social-distancing laws. This is often without access to running water, basic sanitation or food. Many are unable to work during the pandemic (due to restrictions on travel), meaning they have no income and are in urgent need of supplies.
"There are many people who have nothing to eat and no clean drinking water," Amadou, who lives in Lepe settlement, Huelva says.
Local organisations are working to provide basic necessities in these communities. Your support will provide food, medicine, nappies and other vital supplies.
We are working with SOC-SAT agricultural unions in Almeria and Huelva and the Collective of African Workers to provide relief through a new Crowdfunding campaign.
