Hunger is a heartbreaking image of the extreme poverty in which thousands of families live. They are often found in excluded and abandoned areas, struggling day by day the indifference and fighting to get food that will allow them to regain their human dignity. In the midst of the holiday season and the health crisis that has increased social inequality in Colombia, we are grateful for the kind hearts of our donors who, through GlobalGiving, joined in with acts of generosity and solidarity to transform the lives of those in need.
There are many families living in poverty and food insecurity in Bogota, this time, thanks to your generosity we reached the neediest and vulnerable in the town of Ciudad Bolivar, promoting the importance of serving effectively and raise those who live the scourge of hunger.
While we celebrated the arrival of the holidays and planed new goals for 2022, almost 300 million people in the world suffer from food insecurity. In Colombia, more than five million people have no food, suffer from malnutrition and from chronic diseases caused by the deadliest and longest-lived virus that exists: hunger.
There is still a long way to go. The COVID-19 pandemic is still leaving its mark on our society and together with hunger became a global threat. If we join efforts, we can secure food packages for the most vulnerable, meaning a vaccine of life, energy and future, for thousands of people.
Thank you for supporting Bogotá Food Bank and being part of this crusade against hunger. Our daily task is to ensure that food in Colombia becomes a right and not a privilege.
