May 2020 - in the last few months, a new squat to live has been opened in the Guillotière district of Lyon. The residents are single mothers, single people and families. The personal situations are diverse, but all come together around the same need: to have a roof over their heads, which the metropolis and the public authorities are apparently unable to provide. In Lyon, the number of people on the street is estimated at around 3,000, including 310 children and 700 young isolated minors. What is happening at Maria is an opportunity, but also the fruit of everyone's perseverance, hope as a banner, solidarity as a weapon!
Help the inhabitants of Maria!
We are launching a fund https://www.cotizup.com/lemaria in order to provide for the primary needs of the inhabitants:
- to buy large quantities of non-perishable food and hygiene products,
- pay the health costs of those who cannot benefit from social security,
- acquire games and educational material for children.
In order to guarantee good living conditions for the inhabitants of Maria, we must also continue the work that has been started to ensure the healthiness of the apartments. However, we lack money to buy the necessary materials and tools. When all this has been solved, the residents would also like to organise cultural events.
Your financial or material help is welcome, we thank you in advance. Whatever the amount, everyone can participate in this fund. No need to create an account or register, it's fast and payments by credit card are 100% secure. If you can't participate financially, share this fund around you as much as possible. THANK YOU!
The residents and supporters of Maria.
