Coteau Raffin, where the Association Amour et Espoir is located, is one of the three poorest regions in Mauritius. During the economic downturn after the first lockdown in Mauritius, the conditions were even more devastating, if that’s possible. Many of the parents are unemployed, living in awful conditions. It is critical that these children, enduring unimaginable hardship, receive psychological and social support. The Association ensures this through regular counseling with the consulting psychologist and visits from the social worker, as well as having a close relationship with the headmaster of the local school. Amour et Espoir are incredibly grateful that they can provide this support, uninterrupted, during this time due to our generous funder.
