Who Feeds Orphans When The Parents Have Gone?

Valencia, Venezuela - South American Initiative has a team of volunteers and staff - in the country - that see first hand how the current political and economic crisis affects the most vulnerable victims: abandoned children.

SAI Feeds the Children When the Parents are Gone

With help from generous GlobalGiving donors like you, SAI feeds the children when the parents are gone. Our mission is to help people in their deepest time of need and the people who need help the most right now are young children in orphanages.

In the past three months - with help from GlobalGiving donors - SAI has provided the following:

  • AUGUST: 5,421 meals provided to orphan children
  • SEPTEMBER: 5,720 meals provided to orphans children
  • OCTOBER: 5,922 meals provided to orphans children

SAI Delivers Food & Medicine to Four Orphanages

South American Initiative currently supports four different orphanages in Venezuela. We provide bi-weekly fresh food deliveries and medicines for these abandoned children. 

When we make our deliveries the children’s eyes light up because they know there will be no shortage of food today thanks to SAI donors and volunteers.

These Abandoned Kids are Starting to Flourish

Take a look at the photos of the orphan children in this report. As you can see, they look happy, healthy, clean, and well cared for. This is possible because people like you have been gracious in sharing and giving their time and money to provide for these abandoned kids. Without your help, many would perish while others might become easy prey for predators trafficking children as sex slaves.

Stomach problems from drinking contaminated water

Our medical team has advised us that 60% of children under the age of five have gastrointestinal problems from drinking contaminated water. To solve this problem SAI is working to provide clean drinking water by installing commercial-grade water filtration systems at each of our orphanages.

Help Us Buy a Water Filtration System To Supply Clean Drinking Water

These water filtration systems are expensive, but they can solve many medical problems and save more money than they cost in doctor visits and medications. This water filtration system cost just under $2,200. After that, the only expense is replacing the water filters. 

Help Us Complete This Project!

We started this project with a goal to raise $20,000. Right now we are at $5,348. We are just over 25% of the way there and need an additional $14,652 to complete our goal. As a GlobalGiving donor, we ask that you continue to help these orphan children. Your donations make living in Venezuela as an orphan a little brighter! Donate today! Thank You! 

This project reflects generous donations made from GlobalGiving and SAI donors.
