This 2022, we continue supporting people who need food. The pandemic might be over soon, but the impact will stay with us for longer. According to Action Against Hunger, 73.4% of the population in Lima live under food insecurity, 1 in 8 people suffer from malnutrition and 40% of the the population between 3 to 35 months suffer from anaemia. Due to this crisis, we are focusing on those who need more now: our community partners in Lima. Please, help us.
Nuevo Amanecer del Paraiso, is a community in Lima. Last year, we supported their efforts too, while keeping the support of our community partners in the andes. However, due to the current situation, we have decided to focus our efforts on those who need more: our partners in Lima. Nuevo Amanecer is located in San Juan de Lurigancho district, 20 minutes away from the Presidential Palace but lives in extreme poverty condition. Households have no water or sewage service, for instance.
We continue to support the SDG 2: Zero Hunger. This project has already provided thousands of meals to more than 200 families for more than a year. The effects of the pandemic remain as part of the daily lives for many communities and we want to support them with having the basic, any human being needs: food. Your donations could continue to help us supporting them through their community lunch program called: "Shared pot" or Olla comun, a community space for them to prepare meals for all.
Nexos Comunitarios has been working hard on adjusting our model and work and support more people in our country. Our support with food is the beginning of what we hope it is a long-lasting relationship so we can work in other projects: - implementation of sewage system - improvement of infrastructure - improvement of education services And others. For us to work in other areas, we are convinced our partners need to have their basic needs covered, in this case: their food.
