MUA’s leader, Evelin Alfaro, talks with KQED for an interview with NDWA Director, Ai-jen Poo regarding the tremendous effect the pandemic had on her and her family.
Evelin Alfaro wrote “The pandemic affected me tremendously. I was without work for several months. I was saving for eye surgery so I had to use my savings and stretch them out as much as possible, after the quarantine and shut down little by little I started working a day or few days a week. I didn’t drive so I used public transportation and feared that I could die or I would contract the virus and spread it to my extended family. It was a big risk in spite of knowing the risks of being exposed. I also knew I didn’t have a choice.. I have to work to survive”
