Unexpected circumstance hit the world with the virus COVIOD-19. The lock -down in Los Cabo Mexico, being a touristic destination, has had devastating effects on each of our beneficiaries' families. Fathers and mothers are without income or their salaries have been greatly reduced. Already a vulnerable segment of society, our kid's have been put in worse conditions with more burden and misfortune adding even greater emotional uncertainty to the whole family.
1.5 million Mexican children suffer from malnutrition and 2 million children under the age of five are anemic. An overwhelming percentage of children in the country are not provided with a healthy foundation from which to grow, succeed, and overcome poverty. Adding unfortunate times of the COVID-19 pandemic the problem has grow, poverty and the lack of food has increase.
Your donation will buy nutritious food to feed healthy meals to 350 children. Our goal is to keep our program strong - bringing meals to our children during the remainder of the COVID-19 lockdown. Have accomplished that goal, plus more beneficiaries have added to our program. Sarahuaro supported them to overcome the overwhelming circumstances of the pandemic.
We believe that where there is food, there is hope! We decided to act quickly once the COVID-19 lockdown call down and schools closed. We started providing our Kids family's with food - and we have not stopped. Not only one school child is fed but all members of their family including siblings, other relatives, and friends living under the same roof. Better nutrition at home rounds out our program, laying the foundation to grow healthier, better educated children for generations to come.
