Even though we faced difficulties during this pandemic time, being obligated to stop our activity from the months of March to September 2020, in October we could open again and had a slow but steady recovery. There were many youngsters coming to our café looking for jobs or a place to stay, and even we could cover all our basic expenses, we increased the team.
In the months of December, January and February we almost reached to the pre-covid times sales, and we got the opportunity to open a small canteen in the Holy Spirit Hospital. We started this new initiative as we could offer more job opportunities to the youngsters in need coming to our doors. Unfortunately, in April started the 2nd wave of Covid 19 in India, and we had to stop the Café operation again. The only point of light here, is that the Canteen, being part of the hospital, is considered as basic services, and we can at least cover part of the expenses of the café with it.
We are very lucky to have all these beautiful angels who care about the project, and help us to find opportunities like the Canteen, to make us strong and keep moving.
We are because of you,
