IMMEDIATE COVID-19 AID FOR WASTE PICKERS

Voices of the People

“The Pandemic has affected us so badly in terms of food, rent, pricing of the plastics we collect. We have to cover a long distance in walking searching for plastics due to the closure of businesses, and the rates have dropped a lot per kilo of recyclables - to a quarter or less. This is a big challenge to us.”

JOHN ROBERT


“Today I do not know what we are going to eat at home. Prices have gone down too much, no offtakers because of lockdown. No food, no money for rent. We are struggling"

MASIKA MBWANA


“I used to sell 200 kilograms of plastics collected per week today we are talking of 20 kilograms….family needs food, rent etc etc. CORONA has affected us too much we need help.”
