Our attention keeps getting to the communitites were is most needed, now more than ever and with the repercutions of Covid-19, help is needed in this Wixárika Indigenous Communities. As we keep getting there in a monthly basis, we keep finding how rich and historic our originary cultures are, also, they are important in order to preserve our collective memory, traditions and history.

We have delivered alimentary security during this time and non stop to the communities mentionated above. This alimentary security is the key to ensure life and dignity, we delivered this to over 1000 children in the Sierra Wixárika, this through our alimentary complement "ONIformula" and our complete nutrition interaction, with antropometric measurements. As complement of this actions, we have delivered also our educational program, where we give information abouth healthier alimentary habits and how to accomplish them.

As you keep helping us, we keep figthing this big problematic where is most needed, and we will continue to rescue children from malnutrition and build together a space suited for development.

We want to express our gratitude with you, due to your donations, we continue to arrive to the Wixárika Indigenous Community in the northern Sierra of Jalisco, and we continue providing alimentary security and fighting children malnutrition in the region. Due to the pandemic, caused by Covid-19, it was challenging to us to start teaching and applying this new health and hygiene protocols, but with effort and dedication we keep arriving to this communities with the only objective of making a difference in their lives, and always taking care of the safety of our staff and the community. 

In the last 4 months we interacted with 1000 children, we weighted them, measure them and gave them their alimentary complement for every day consumption, we also gave 4 special educational talks to the mothers and fathers of this children, the new topics, on these educational talks, were the prevention strategies for Covid-19, best and nutritious ways to prepare and cook food, alimentary hygiene and its importance for health, also topics that relate to human development and healthy relationships between family members. 

Our interactions also include the delivery of our ONIfórmula, in these 3 months we manage to deliver 27,000 doses of our ONIformula, and we manage to bring alimentary security to 300 families. This interaction is vital for the community, due to the geographic location and the lack of access to water, we want to continue with our interaction in this community, that so much need it, and it would be impossible without you, we want to thank you and to invite you to keep donating to make this community life better and build together a space for development.

Dear donor, 

At ONI we hope everything is fine with you and your beloved ones. On this report we would like to bring a little ray of light by telling you a little of all the possitive things that are happening linked to this quarantine. We know it has been difficult for all of us, but in the middle of all the negative effects this pandemic is causing, one thing is, for sure, shinning above all: the community love and support. 

In Jalisco, we have been quarantined for almost 5 months now, but it hasn't stopped us from working in benefit of our children, and that has inspired some groups, companies, and individuals who felt the need of supprting causes like ours by donating food, money, time and resources. The most clear example of this is GlobalGiving, who, thanks to all the supporters like you, were able to give us 2 economic donations that translated in hundreds of children receiving their nutritional complement every month; this donations also helped us respond to further needs of the families like bringing basic groseries to those who have lost their jobs. 

We can't say thank you enough for making possible to keep on working for our children. We still need you, our children needs us. 


Querido donante,

En ONI esperamos que todo este bien contigo y tus seres queridos. En este reporte nos gustaría mostrar un pequeño rayo de luz al contarte un poco de todo lo positivo que ha sucedido ligado a esta cuarentena. Sabemos que ha sido difícil para todos, pero en medio de todos los efectos negativos que esta pandemia está causando, una cosa ha salido a relucir: el apoyo y cariño de la comunidad. 

En Jalisco hemos estado en cuarentena por casi 5 meses, pero esto no nos ha detendio en nuestro trabajo en beneficio de nuestros niños, lo que ha inspirado a algunos grupos, compañías, e individuos que sintieron la necesidad de apoyar causas como la nuesra donando comida, dinero, tiempo y recursos. El ejemplo más claro de esto es GlobalGiving, quien gracias a todos los donantes como tú, pudo hacernos 2 donaciones económicas que se tradujeron en cientos de niños que recibieron su Oniformula cada mes; estas donaciones también nos ayudaron a responder a otras necesidades de las familias como alimentos de la canasta básica a aquellos que perdieron sus empleos.

No podemos agradecerte lo suficiente por hacer posible que sigamos trabajando para nuestros niños. Aún te necesitamos, nuestros niños nos necesitan.
