Summary

The aim of this project is to assist 118 vulnerable kids and their families that are being affected by the COVID 19 pandemic. Taking that into account, trought this project we would cover the basic needs of these families in terms of food and hygiene. To make this possible, The Food Bank will give a food package every 15 days to each one of the families for a year. This will help reduce household food insecurity as well as promote an adequate growth and development in the children.

Challenge

Currently in Bogota there are more than 47,000 cases of malnurishment in primary school children, who do not have access to any food for the entire day. Aditionally, the COVID 19 pandemic has worsened the situation. That is why various efforts have been made by both people and institutions to try to reduce this hunger rate, but it is has not been enough. By helping us to reach our goal, 118 children and their families will enhance their food security & nutrition situation for a year in Bogota.

Solution

With the $45,000 raised from your donations, we will be able to monitor and control the nutritional state of the children through food rations and anthropometric evaluations. We will also promote education of healthy lifestyles habits, helping us strengthen partnerships with the community in regards to health care. The Food Bank of Bogota will work with parents and caregivers to share the information about the program and ensure that it is sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

By enhancing household food security, 118 children and their families will improve their quality of life along with their health.
