Diaspora organizations pulled together to provide essential services to their hometown of Straseni during COVID-19. By easing remittance transfer costs and setting up a coordination mechanism between local authorities and diaspora members, migrants were enabled to continue to give back to their communities of origin during the pandemic. Straseni exemplifies how migrants can help our communities recover better.
