This 2021, we are planning to continue with this project. This is a challenging time and currently we are currently all the community members (close to 400 inhabitants)! This project is part of our initiative called #SomosAyllu, a response to the effects of COVID-19. Each USD provides 3 meals, so all donations counts. Our community partners need your support in this very difficult time for all. We all deserve to eat daily. Please, support our project. Thank you!
Cuncani is a community in the High-Andes of Urubamba (Cusco) that remains isolated and without presence of the State. Malnutrition has been one of the many problems they face. The lack of availability of the products and diversity of them, makes it very hard for the parents to feed their children properly. HOWEVER, the pandemic only make the situation worse for everyone as they lack of any income and the only food available are potatoes. The problem will continue for more time.
For years, we have proved that daily lunches at school, makes a lot of difference to their lives. We have eradicated anaemia, and children in this community have better health than others in the surrounding who don't receive proper nutrition. Right now, we are providing lunches not just to 68 children but to ALL the community members (close to 400 inhabitants). This is a response generated by an emergency: COVID-19 and thanks to the lunches, they could have at least one good meal per day.
The lunches are one of the component of a bigger project: #SomosAyllu. #SomosAyllu, has three components: - Daily Lunches for all the community members organized and lead by a woman community leader (our coordinator, Saturnina) - Family and school greenhouses - Trout farm to produce fish to feed the community and generate an income to the community as a whole.
