"SAI has blessed us with their food and help, we had not eaten anything since yesterday night," said one of the mothers of the pediatric patients at the Dr. Enrique Tejera hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Venezuela located in the state of Carabobo. There are many children that are in a state of critical malnutrition, but there are more donors that have joined us in our efforts to reduce hunger in this beautiful country. SAI is making noticeable improvements in the quality of life in this hospital.

South American Initiative receives both food and monetary donations each week. We use the monetary donations to provide fresh food and medical supplies to be distributed to different hospitals. These foods contain the necessary nutrition to help pediatric patients achieve an improved recovery. The medical supplies assist in improving patient care in the hospitals.

In the last three months, we have:

  • Distributed more than 5,128 nutritious meals.
  • Fed more than 1,000 pediatric patients.
  • Helped hundreds of families.
  • Assisted pediatric patients and their families with necessary resources.

Your contribution to South American Initiative makes the expansion of this project a reality and increases the amount of nutritious meals and medical supplies available to people struggling during the current health crisis. Thousands of patients will benefit from your generous donations.

We at SAI want to thank each donor for their generosity in helping us improve the lives of people hospitalized in Venezuela.

Thanks to all donors of GlobalGiving for supporting our cause. The information is reflective of GlobalGiving campaign Let's Give a Helping Hand to Venezuela.

South American Initiative provided urgent support to Dr. Miguel Malpica Hospital located in Guacara, Carabobo State, Venezuela. This Hospital houses over 500 patients in a facility made only to hold 200. SAI have had a very rewarding experience serving all the patients and their families. There is a great number of children and adults who don't receive three basic meals required for a balanced diet in order to get a proper recovery. None of the public hospitals in Venezuela provide the right amount of nutrients needed. Proteins are not included on the menu in all hospitals. SAI was there to save the day by providing proteins, vegetables and fruits. SAI helped to provide more than 2500 meals to malnourished patients in the hospital and their families who visited.

SAI also visited Vicente de Paul Shelter located in Naguanagua, Carabobo State Venezuela where there are over 150 elderly people. We distributed over 380 pounds of food consisting on pumpkins, yams, potatoes, tomatoes, oranges and herbs such as coriander, parsley, chive and celery to make over 1000 meals at the homeless shelter.

We also cared for the homeless people who live on the streets. We visited one of the most crowded bus terminals located in Valencia city, Carabobo State Venezuela. There were more than 100 people sleeping on the streets among children and adults. SAI provided over 80 nutritious meals for all, consisting on rice, chicken and vegetables and warm loving attention from volunteers.

The malnourished people are expressing their sincere gratitude. Without your kindness and generous support it is very difficult for us to serve the destitute and needy in time. South American Initiative staff and volunteers thank you for all your support with our global efforts.

This time South American Initiative visited one of many hospitals located in Carabobo, Venezuela. We had the chance to provide food and toys. It was a wonderful surprise that SAI was preparing for every kid in the hospital. They didn't imagine that Santa Claus was coming to give them a visit. Our donors and SAI made it possible.

Many happy faces were waiting for the presents that SAI offered to the children. We also fed people that were outside the hospital. It was an exciting moment. There were many kids that enjoyed a different moment. We had the opportunity to make everyone know that SAI is going to provide all the help possible to South America.

We need to thank all the donors that have helped us to transform many lives. We appreciate all your help. Thanks for trusting South American Initiative. We invite you to enjoy the following photos.
