COVID-19 response in AlbaniaMarch 20, 2020
On March 8, the Albanian government closed all schools and public gatherings throughout the country to limit the spread of coronavirus. Students at Nehemiah Gateway's schools and programs went home, and the elderly and sick people who come to Nehemiah Gateway's soup kitchens were told to stay home. Many of these people are very poor, and missing school means missing meals. For people with no other reliable source of support, this project may be the only food and care they get during the crisis.

Their home was condemned, so they are spending the winter in a tent. Although organizations like NG partner ProFamilja are helping them with food and supplies, it is cold and damp in the winter, and staying clean and healthy is a constant battle.
