Summary

Bring food to hungry families in isolated communities of Cartagena during the COVID19 emergency. The goal is to bring basic food and provisions to these communities in conjunction with the Colombian Armada (Naval fleet), coordinated with the city of Cartagena while the state of emergency lasts. The focus is on the elderly and families with children.

Challenge

The conditions our island communities face in the wake of the COVID19 are alarming. 76% of homes already faced problems of hunger before this crisis and 95% of income for island inhabitants comes from tourism and fishing, which today are non-existent. Additionally, these island communities lack running water, sewage and health systems.

Solution

Our goal is to take 2,000 basic food provisions to help the most vulnerable families on the islands, with the help of the Colombian Naval Forces and coordination of the city of Cartagena. The goal is to deliver food and provisions to help families in isolated communities face the quarantine and make it through the COVID19 crisis. The local authorities in each community - Consejo Comunitario and leaders, set up a relief team of their own to effectively distribute food to those most in need.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help local communities of over 4500 people take care of their most vulnerable families. Once this emergency passes, these communities will be able to take care of their environment and improve their living conditions. Contributes to the lives and safety of isolated communities, as well as to those of Cartagena city dwellers. #stayhome
