Hello everyone!

We hope you are well!

It has been a while since we sent you a message to share news about the project.

First of all, to all of you who are making monthly donations. Though there are no many, we are incredibly grateful for them. Your donation helps and your commitment to our work, nourishes us. Thank you!

Second of all, though the donation slow down during the last 4 months, thanks to GlobalGiving and an exceptional donation we received, we have been able to support our partners not just in the Andes but also in the capital of our country: Lima (since Last October). Their donation has helped us to continue with our work and arrived in the most critical moment of our organization and we could not be more grateful for it.

Last but not least, during the last months we have been able to provide meals to children and adults, approximately 500 people in total. And to celebrate Christmas we were able to prepare hot chocolate and provide paneton (traditional sweet bread) to 70 childre in one of the communities and 120 in the other one. 

We apologise about the lack of quality and number of pictures. Since 2020, we have been only two staff who have dedicated full time to our organization and we have had to work remotely. The visit to both of the communities have been less than 10. We hope this year will be able to visit as we used to (weekly).

Soon, we will be sharing with you what will be the next steps to follow. To have community partners in different spaces (rural and urban), living in different climates, having different challenges and orgazining differently is a challenge but also a great opportunity to keep learning.

We want to finalize this message thanking you again for your support and asking you, not just for your donations but if possible, to learn more about our world, finding a way to relate with each other, understanding the complexity in our world and accepting that there are more than one context through we want to perceive our reality.

Stay safe!

Dear all,

First of all, we want to thank you for your continued support! With it, we are able to keep providing food the the community members.

Second of all, we want to share with you that, although the process is slower than in ordinary times, thanks to the support of a Canadian organization, we will be building more greenhouses for the school.

For many years, we have been promoting the idea for the community members to work on the school greenhouse so the childrens can take advantage of the production of it and add it to their diet. Despite of failed attempts in the past, we hope that, under the circumstances we are dealing with, the community members would take this opportunity for the success of the project! We need them!

Third of all, this month, we were able to do blood test to all Primary School children last week. Within the next days, the doctor will analyze the results and together with the nutritionis will work on their diet based on the state of their health. We will share more news with you, in the next report.

Lastly, thanks to the support of GlobalGiving, we are able to continue with our organization and projects and, within the next few months, we will be able to support another community as well. The pandemic and the political situation have put more people into poverty and others into extreme poverty. The community we will be working with is located in Lima and although their circumstances are different, they are in great need of support.

This time, we have dont have not many nor good pictures. We hope we can get better ones, for the next report.

Thanks again for your support and we are still counting with you! Please, consider on making a donation, here. Or share our information with your friends and family.

Maricarmen.

Hello evernoye,

How are you? We hope you are keeping yourselves safe and sane.

Thank you very much for all your support througouth all these months. Thanks to them, we have been able to provide lunches to all the community (close to 400 inhabitants) between 2 and 3 times per weeksince the beginning of January. THANK YOU for your support!

The situation in Peru is currently more complicated. Between the suffering that Covid-19 is generating and the results of the first round of elections, we are afraid to say, we, Peruvians, are very overwhelmed. If you want to read more news about it, please take a look to our last newsletter.

After thousands of meals provided, we are still working hard on providing food for our community partners as their situation is very precarious and it does not seem to find an end to it anytime soon. You can read more about the situatione, in this newsletter.

Some of you might have received your vaccine and we are happy for you! We just want to ask you to not forget about those people who are struglling a lot due to the virus and its effects. Please, show and extra dose of compassion for them and if you can, keep supporting our efforts and share them among your friends and family.

We know you have heard of ”We are one” many times, and for now, we want to ask you to remember this. We truly believe in the interdependence of our world and that it depends only on us to overcome this pandemic. 

Thank you for your support.

Hello everyone,

We hope you all are doing good and keeping yourselves sane.

2020 keeps surprising us. Peru just finishes a very intense and unexpected few weeks. Although the risk to our democracy seems that just passed, we are still finding some answers of how that happened. As is any other parts of the world, the reality is pushing us to make changes: in and individual level and a as part of a system. If you want to know what happened to Peru, I would recommend you to read this article and this one, too.

Due to the pandemic, our work continued to be done but slower than ever. The distance of the community, the funds available that we used to generate by ourselves (almost reduced to 0) and the fact that many people are suffering these days, reduce our possibility to do our work as we usually do. Nonetheless, we continue to:
- Bring food to the community, not just to the kids but now to the 91 families that are living in the community. Please, we keep counting on your donations (now, more than ever!)
- Keep working with them on the next stages. Stay tuned! Our biggest project ever is coming very soon.
We want to share with you an interview we made to the principal of the school in the community, who has been a wonderful support to do our work during these months. You can find the interview, here.
The situation could be chaotic as it was a week ago, the level of hope is not the same everyday BUT one of the lessons for this time is to remember that we can find courage within ourselves and that it becomes stronger when we remember that all of us together are ONE.
Stay safe everyone!

Dear all,

We hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.

In this crisis, we are all suffering. However, those who live in poverty are suffering the most. Poverty does not only persist but has increased during these months.  Where were those accomplishments on the eradication on poverty some institutions have been applauding? If you want to know more about it, you might find interesting the last report of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights. The parlous state of poverty eradication, that was released a last week.

For now, we have been supporting our community partner with food and basic hygiene kit (soaps). We were able to delivered 85 baskets, two weeks ago.  We are hoping to deliver more very soon.

Find below all our latest weekly messages and send us an email to info@nexos.org.pe if you want to receive them directly to your email.

An adequate standard of living. That's te goal.

Life's intimate connections.

First basket delivery to Cuncani: Done 

We need sport. Sport needs us.

Thanks so much for your continued support! We really need it.
