Summary

The winter wave started in Colombia. Torrential rains and flash floods have hit families living in informal settlements in Bogota and Soacha extremely hard, in two areas with a history of acute poverty. At TECHO we want to provide food kits to those affected and emergency housing especially to low-income families and women. As an NGO, we have been working in these territories for more than 10 years to ensure that the kits and housing allocation are for the people who need them most.

Challenge

The winter wave in Colombia is a natural phenomenon that occurs annually where heavy rains and flash floods for at least the next 30 days affect thousands of families living in extreme poverty. These floods are affecting many of them without a home to shelter from the rain or other natural phenomena.

Solution

TECHO wants to support affected families by providing food kits and if we raise all of the funds to build emergency housing. With the support of each of you, we will be able to fulfill the purpose of helping affected families, and thus do our part to overcome together the catastrophe we are facing! We will be making deliveries and looking to rebuild the largest number of homes affected by the winter wave in Ciudad Bolivar Bogota and Soacha.

Long-Term Impact

Hand in hand with our partners, we strive to raise funds and awareness of humanitarian crises around the world. We believe that by partnering with TECHO, an organization that brings people together to lift Latin American communities out of poverty, we can truly make a difference in Soacha and Bogota. We know that with your help we can make a difference! In this campaign we hope to feed 600 people and deliver 49 emergency homes.
