QC Family Tree Raises over $50,000 for Essential Workers and High-risk Households in Its Community
Posted on Sep 14, 2020
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shut downs related to it, QC Family Tree adapted our work to look like a mutual aid project. As federal stimulus checks went out, we appealed to friends and supporters to send unneeded funds from wealthier households, and we would redistribute them into the hands of essential workers and high-risk households.
Brazil in the Face of the Pandemic
Posted on Aug 25, 2020
As we write this letter, Brazil has surpassed Russia, becoming the country with the second-largest number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, behind only the United States...Amid all the anxiety and anguish that the Brazilian population faces in this critical moment as our country becomes the new epicenter of the pandemic, we also have to face a severe political crisis that exacerbates the already very precarious public health situation. The two crises cannot be dissociated, nor fully understood apart from what has been going on for some years in Brazil.

COVID-19 Disproportionately Affects Women and Children
Zimbabwe Update, June 9, 2020
Thank you very much for our concern about us in Zimbabwe. We are also concerned about the situation in the U.S. in terms of the Covid-19. We continue to pray that the situation will get better and that a cure will be found soon. Here in Zimbabwe the official numbers are quite low and we are not sure if this is the true reflection of the reality on the ground. Just like in the U.S. the lockdown restrictions have had a huge negative impact on the populace. This is compounded by the fact that before the Covid-19 pandemic our country was facing a myriad of problems politically and economically. Economically before the Covid-19 pandemic, Zimbabwe had become an economic basket case. Our economy had become—according to reputable statistical data— over 80% informal. Here we are talking of around 90% unemployment rate.

April 16, Dalia Juárez Fernández, seminary director writes: "Thank God I'm fine, in this last week some indigenous communities have presented fear, two people in the Simojovel area have taken their lives. COVID-19 has reached the communities, people who worked outside their communities have returned, some have arrived sick, which has caused some families to have been infected. We ask God that his protection be throughout the world."
Fraternity of Baptist Churches of Cuba

April 13 note from Stan Dotson: "Like the rest of the world, Cuba has implemented social distancing and stay-at-home measures, and various neighborhoods in which we are accustomed to visiting have been quarantined due to confirmed cases. Since we live at the Center, we are now its "staff," mainly offering the purified water to the community in the mornings. Meanwhile, Kim stays busy helping Wanda (Center Director) in making "nasobucos", face masks, for the community. Being the artist that she is, Wanda uses colorful material from old clothes, so people can be fashionable in wearing the masks! The demand for her nasobucos went up after she and Kim were featured in a local television spot for their service.
