Throughout this year, we have worked hard to fight hunger and improve the quality of life of those families who do not have the necessary resources to feed themselves adequately. As a result, they consume less than three meals a day, affecting their well-being and development. Thanks to our donors' solidarity, we have delivered more than 8.526.000 kilos of products to social organizations serving vulnerable people this year.
La Guajira is one of the departments most affected by hunger and malnutrition, so much so that, last week, the National Government declared a social and economic emergency in the region. Thanks to your donations and conscious of the difficulties of thousands in this region in the extreme north of South America, we traveled more than 1.300 km to deliver almost 6 tons of products to contribute to the fight against malnutrition in Colombian indigenous children and to improve the living conditions of the families in the area.
At the Bogota Food Bank, we work closely with a network of social organizations to identify and reach families with food insecurity. We invite you and your family to allow us to continue working for the welfare of those in need by donating to our Bank.
Thank you for supporting our daily effort. We invite you, once again, to walk with us and support our tasks to ensure that food in Colombia becomes a right and not a privilege.
