When a crisis like the coronavirus hits, it's the poorest who suffer the most 
With the funds received, it has been possible to help 70 people, belonging to 10 families in the town of Santo Tomas, Concepcion department. Food kits including flour, oil, sugar, herb and rice have been delivered.

With these basic elements, families will be able to supplement their diet for 1 month. This aid is essential given that these families only have subsistence crops and are not being able to generate income to sustain themselves.

The families had difficulty during past years providing enough food for all family members because of a lack of resources.

On top of the more than 1,000 families that already received help thanks to these donations, with the funds raised since the month of August we were able to assist 9 more families from the Concepción Department. 

In order to guarantee their food security, we delivered food kits for 50 people containing sources of protein (chicken and eggs), vegetables (tomatoes, peppers and onions) as well as flour and oil.

Our relief fund continues to help many families that have been deeply affected by the Covid19 pandemic meet one of their most basic needs: access to food.

Thank you for your support!

Over 1,000 families from 18 localities in northern Paraguay were benefited thanks to these donations. We supported 58 Women’s Committee, 9 Small producer’s Committee and 56 families of students’ that go to the Belen Agricultural School. Donations allowed us to purchase food kits that contained: rice, sugar, cocking oil, flour, salt, beans and yerba mate. Also, we were able to assist with 58 “Ollas populares” (when a large meal is prepared for the whole community) organized by the committees, by buying all main ingredients such as meat, rice, vegetables, bread, chicken, etc.. Moreover, to further empower the families to overcome these difficult times, we were able to provide 112 “orchard kits” with chard, lettuce, carrot, tomato, pepper and onion seeds. Belen Agricultural School's students provided technical assistance for the families for successful orchards.

Our relief fund has helped many families that have been deeply affected by the Covid19 pandemic as they have lost their main source of income. All families were extremely grateful for this help!
