I recently chatted with Susi the owner of a Donativo Albergue on the Camino Frances.

And of course if you would like to help out some of the Businesses along the various Caminos, this link has quite a few of them! Thank You @ivar. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...-camino-business-in-these-covid-19-times.210/
A great interview and good quality sound and video. Such a pity to hear the inevitably sad account of the economic and social impact on the Camino villages and businesses. Are the Catholic Church or Camino Associations able to do anything to provide financial support to the albergues, especially the donativos?

Thanks for the conversation with Susi, Robo. Casa Susi is the most wonderful albergue - everything about it is beautiful - the welcome that Susi and Fermin give pilgrims, the accommodation and facilities, the communal meal - everything. As veteran pilgrims themselves, Susi and Fermin take an incredible amount of care to give pilgrims all they could possibly need.
Being at Casa Susi is like being in a loving hug.

Best wishes from Oz -
