SAI Provided 8,225 Nutritious Meals for Hospital Patients in October!
Thanks to GlobalGiving donors,October was a breakthrough month for South American Initiative’s project to help Venezuelan hospital patients. With our new kitchen facilities we have increased our food production capabilities. SAI prepared and delivered a whopping 8,225 meals to patients in local public hospitals.
Upgraded Kitchens Expand Meal Distribution
During the past month, we have focused on providing more meals to individuals in Venezuelan public hospitals.
Several days a week SAI staff and volunteers make and distribute fresh meals and desperately needed medicine. Our volunteers now make over a thousand arepas and other nutritious meals in our kitchens and then deliver them directly to patients in public hospitals.
SAI Volunteers: Guardian Angels for the Sick
Everyone is always excited to see our volunteers because they know we bring healthy food that may be their only nutritious meal of the day. When our volunteers arrive, patients say they are like guardian angels delivering food, medicine, and caring for those who cannot take care of themselves.
We provide help where there is no help; compassion where there is no hope, food where there is no food, and medicine where there is no medicine.
Help Us Finish The Year Strong For the Holidays
Christmas in the hospital is not very exciting. SAI volunteers dress up in Santa costumes when they deliver meals to hospitals. We also do our best to add something special for holiday meals.
With your help, our SAI volunteers and staff can make 2019 a Christmas to remember for these hospital patients. Our goal is to give each patient a small gift. On Christmas, we deliver holiday treats like:
- Hallacas - chicken or beef wrapped in plantain leaves;
- Pan de Jamon - bread filled with raisins and ham; and
- Dulce de Colchinito - a slow-cooked brown sugar and green papaya dessert.
As a GlobalGiving donor, we ask that you continue to help these abandoned hospital patients. Your generosity makes it possible for sick patients to heal faster so they can rejoin their families and loved ones at home. Your donations make a huge emotional difference and truly do save lives! Thank You!
