Cuenca Soup Kitchen Increases Its Reach By Over 9%

By Desmion Dizney | Director

Cuenca, like the rest of Ecuador, has suffered a series of economic setbacks. In addition to the Pandemic, Ecuador has weathered a national strike which had a far reaching economic impact. At the same time that food prices shot up, wages were lost. The numbers on our waiting list began to increase as well. In response CSK redoubled its fundraising efforts and increased the number we serve to approximately 1,000 people. Although we, like many organizations, feel the impact of donor fatigue, our boots on the ground volunteers have made all the difference. Their efforts have allowed this growth to happen and provided much needed food assistance to many more families while continuing to support hygiene programs, children’s initiatives, and disaster relief. Our current waiting list is equal in size to the number of people currently being served. With the threat of another national strike on the horizon, we are preparing for even more applicants. The need is real but the Cuenca Soup Kitchen will continue to provide relief to those who need it most.
