More Healthy Meals to Children

Project Report | Apr 10, 2024
There is still a long journey ahead!

By Maria Luiza | Team Dara

Dear donor,

Thank you very much for your support. Only with your help can we continue to confront the hunger that afflicts our families!

Today, we'd like to share Raylane's story with you. She arrived at Dara in November 2021 accompanied by her daughter Ranah, who was only 2 months old and had many health problems affecting not only her life but also the lives of her entire family. During Ranah's various hospitalizations, Raylane separated from her partner and now lives with her children and parents in a suburb of Rio de Janeiro.

Furthermore, Ranah has a heart condition and needs to take four expensive medications that are not available through the public health system (SUS). The family has no income of their own and depends solely on financial support from the grandmother, who is retired, and the grandfather, who works as a freelancer. This often leads to difficulties in securing the minimum amount of food needed for their meals, sometimes resulting in hunger.

Once at Dara, Raylane and her family became part of the Family Action Plan, receiving R$200.00 per month to access nutritious and quality food, as well as access to our doctors, nutritionists, psychologists, and social workers, who provide support in health and in the pursuit of a healthy, nutritious, and sufficient diet.

Although they have gained access to government assistance, there is still a long journey ahead until Raylane's family can ensure a dignified and secure life for everyone.

Join us in helping Raylane and so many other families facing similar situations in search of a better reality!

With love,
Team Dara Institute
