The European Union redirects funds to support those who need it the most in Uruguay


This year, in view of the special circumstances posed by the coronavirus pandemic, and especially of the food emergency suffered by many, the European Union Delegation to Uruguay decided to redirect the funds earmarked for its Europe Day celebrations to make a donation of  baskets of food and hygiene products.

Donations were made through @canastasuy, and the beneficiaries were the families of pupils of the European Union School and the residents of the Schiaffino home for the elderly.

This action by the European Union was aimed at mitigating the effects that the current emergency is having on Uruguayan society, not only in terms of health but also in resources for those whose income and subsistence are most compromised.
