Challenge

Today, 1 out of every 2 children in Argentina lives in poverty, every 8 minutes a kid drops school, 2 out of every 10 teenagers are indigent, 46% of adults live in poverty or social inequality, and 15% of the population does not have access to drinking potable water. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that caused school closures, job disruptions, and health risks; millions of low-income families will suffer from hunger .

Solution

By following the government's pandemic health guidelines, we have developed a system to hand out one emergency bag per month to each family aiming to face hunger during this uncertain time.

Long-Term Impact

This project's goal is to feed 850 families (5,000+ people) for two months, not only by allowing them to rise out of hunger during COVID-19 pandemic but also by providing support in health and well-beign matters.
