The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been more devastating in some countries than others, many people have lost their jobs as a source of income for their family, and particularly in El Salvador there are thousands of people that work in the "informal" sector (street vendors, waiters, gardeners, etc.) that haven't worked for months and are now literally starving with their families. When you drive outside of the capital, you can actually see people by the side of the road waving white flags asking for food.
We believe that it is essential to help the people who aren't as fortunate as ourselves in these hard times, this is why with a small group of people we started a few weeks ago bringing food and basic necessities to families in need in rural communities of El Salvador.
Currently we are reaching approximately 100-150 people from about 50 families in the rural community of Talnique, we bring them some food and clothes but it's hardly enough since there are a lot of children and we can only get there once a week. Our goal is to be able to expand our resources so we can reach out to at least 200 families with this campaign and also help rebuild more than 20 homes that were also devastated by the harsh weather we´ve been experiencing.
We believe that we all have the responsibility to help each other as co-inhabitants of Earth, and we find it very hard to enjoy all the benefits we have in life when we've seen first hand little children starving and cold hoping that someone can provide them with what they not only need, but deserve as human beings.
If you believe this is true, please make a donation. You will be making a real difference in the lives of hundreds of people, men and women like you and me who only wish their children have a decent meal on their table every day.
Thank you so much for your kind heart, it means a lot to us.
