A group of businessmen in Spain have joined together to help cloistered religious communities that are unable to support themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic.
During normal times, many cloistered religious communities support themselves by making and selling goods or producing agricultural products, in addition to receiving donations and investments.
But as the national lockdown continues in Spain, due to the ongoing threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, cloistered communities are cut off from their customers.
The "TuclausuramiClausura" (your closing/my Cloister) initiative was recently launched by a group of Spanish business leaders, under the theme, "the lung of our souls needs your support today."
