Help Venezuelan Orphans | Providing 1,500 Meals Weekly

 

Summary

The food crisis in Venezuela harms all components of society. No one seems to escape the reality which begins to leave permanent damages for future generations. 33% of children have a growth delay and this is a mental damage that will be with them throughout their lives. Malnutrition is taking lives in orphanages due to the lack of food supplies provided by the current government.

Challenge

The scarcity of food in Venezuela and the lack of medical supplies has become a problem that affects the health of vulnerable starving children. Orphaned children do not receive the help promised by the government. Those in charge of orphanages have been tasked with reducing the amount of food per day for each per orphaned child. There are more children who are abandoned on the streets that have created an insurmountable challenge.

Solution

South American Initiative will continue to provide over 200 meals per day and clean drinking water to orphans in Venezuela and adults who are suffering from malnutrition in hospitals. We are currently providing shoes, food and clothes to orphanages located in the state of Carabobo, Venezuela "Maria Auxiliadora", "Semillita del Inmaculado Corazon de Maria" and "San Antonio" and expanding to more. We are helping to cover the basic needs of each orphaned child who temporarily lives in these places. Also, we are currently investing in agriculture and in building a greenhouse to plant vegetables and fruits to provide sustainable food for Venezuela orphanages across the country. A percentage of contributions goes towards these greenhouses.

How can I help Venezuela?

This project will help more than 500 orphans through a diet that provides all the necessary nutrients for the healthy development of each child. By providing a balanced fresh meal to each one of them, these children can be well educated and become productive members in the society. Help orphans in need, help sponsor an orphan charity, help sponsor a child. Help us save Venezuela!
