This community is located at the periphery of the country’s capital: Bogotá. This is one of the most affected areas touched by violence and displacement in the whole region.

During these tough times, Proyecto Espace: https://www.proyectoescape.org/ (a community social iniciative) has taken lead over the community safety collecting food, contacting suppliers, ensuring donations to deliver food kits, all held by local donations from friends and foundations. To put together food kits they rely on community farmers, as well as their own orchards and even local markets.

However, now they’re facing a tough situation trying to reach as many families as they can while there’s every time more and more people in need.

By giving just 5eur you’re contributing to buy one individual food kit or personal health kit. So, your contribution can reach as many people as you want!

Every food kit contains: beans, oil, potatoes, spaghetti, salt, sugar, among other essential items. Your contribution also helps to cover transportation costs.
