House Cleaners Losing Work Due to Coronavirus

"The estimated 2.5 million domestic workers in this country are an invisible, undervalued population. Those who work in our homes are human beings who, in the face of COVID-19, have no child care, no income and will probably face severe housing insecurity in the months to come." - Stephanie Land, New York Times, 3-20-2020

Georgina Palacio is from Nicaragua and has worked as a house cleaner in the United States for 16 years. 

Before the coronavirus, she and her eight co-workers would work 5-6 days a week... cleaning an average of 15 houses daily between all of them.

On Thursday, Mar. 19, after the coronavirus outbreak, only two women worked and cleaned only two houses that day. 

This creates a drastic cut in work hours and income for each house cleaner's household. 

This GoFundMe campaign aims to raise funds to help the nine (9) employees and the Latina business-owner who runs the small housekeeping company. 

Thank you in advance for your support. Together, our community, our nation and the world, will get through this difficult time. 

Muchas gracias! <3
