Saving Lives in Hospitals

"SAI has blessed us with their food and help, we had not eaten anything since yesterday night," said one of the mothers of the pediatric patients at the Dr. Enrique Tejera hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Venezuela located in the state of Carabobo. There are many children that are in a state of critical malnutrition, but there are more donors that have joined us in our efforts to reduce hunger in this beautiful country. SAI is making noticeable improvements in the quality of life in this hospital.

South American Initiative receives both food and monetary donations each week. We use the monetary donations to provide fresh food and medical supplies to be distributed to different hospitals. These foods contain the necessary nutrition to help pediatric patients achieve an improved recovery. The medical supplies assist in improving patient care in the hospitals.

In the last three months, we have:

  • Distributed more than 5,128 nutritious meals.
  • Fed more than 1,000 pediatric patients.
  • Helped hundreds of families.
  • Assisted pediatric patients and their families with necessary resources.

Your contribution to South American Initiative makes the expansion of this project a reality and increases the amount of nutritious meals and medical supplies available to people struggling during the current health crisis. Thousands of patients will benefit from your generous donations.

We at SAI want to thank each donor for their generosity in helping us improve the lives of people hospitalized in Venezuela.

Thanks to all donors of GlobalGiving for supporting our cause. The information is reflective of GlobalGiving campaign Let's Give a Helping Hand to Venezuela.

Venezuelan Aid Program for Orphaned Children

Children thank all our generous donors
Children thank all our generous donors

Project Report

Now,  South American Initiative has come to give food, and fight on the right side on this war, reducing hunger, thirst and shortage of food. All this is possible thanks to our generous donors. It’s because of them that we’re providing food to over 80 children in 2 orphanages weekly, with a total of 1,000 meals per month.  

We’re saving kids’ life and giving them a reason to smile.

Our goal is to provide 7,000 meals per month. We wish you could see face to face those kids smiling,  but a picture is worth more than a thousand words.

Reporte del Proyecto

Ahora, Iniciativa Sudamericana ha venido a dar alimentos y luchar en el lado correcto en esta guerra, reduciendo el hambre, la sed y la escasez de alimentos. Todo esto es posible gracias a nuestros generosos donantes. Es por ellos que estamos brindando comida a más de 80 niños en 2 orfanatos semanalmente, con un total de 1,000 comidas por mes.

Estamos salvando la vida de los niños y dándoles una razón para sonreír.

Nuestro objetivo es proporcionar 7.000 comidas por mes. Nos gustaría que puedas observar en persona a cada uno de estos niños sonriendo, pero una imagen vale más que mil palabras.

Thank you for making all this possible

Building a Better Life for People in Need

Sharing with the Patients at the Hospital
Sharing with the Patients at the Hospital

South American Initiative provided urgent support to Dr. Miguel Malpica Hospital located in Guacara, Carabobo State, Venezuela. This Hospital houses over 500 patients in a facility made only to hold 200. SAI have had a very rewarding experience serving all the patients and their families. There is a great number of children and adults who don't receive three basic meals required for a balanced diet in order to get a proper recovery. None of the public hospitals in Venezuela provide the right amount of nutrients needed. Proteins are not included on the menu in all hospitals. SAI was there to save the day by providing proteins, vegetables and fruits. SAI helped to provide more than 2500 meals to malnourished patients in the hospital and their families who visited.

SAI also visited Vicente de Paul Shelter located in Naguanagua, Carabobo State Venezuela where there are over 150 elderly people. We distributed over 380 pounds of food consisting on pumpkins, yams, potatoes, tomatoes, oranges and herbs such as coriander, parsley, chive and celery to make over 1000 meals at the homeless shelter.

We also cared for the homeless people who live on the streets. We visited one of the most crowded bus terminals located in Valencia city, Carabobo State Venezuela. There were more than 100 people sleeping on the streets among children and adults. SAI provided over 80 nutritious meals for all, consisting on rice, chicken and vegetables and warm loving attention from volunteers.

The malnourished people are expressing their sincere gratitude. Without your kindness and generous support it is very difficult for us to serve the destitute and needy in time. South American Initiative staff and volunteers thank you for all your support with our global efforts.
