The last year and the current 2021 have both been really rough on so many levels. During the covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, a lot of families are not only fighting the disease itself but also the hunger. Since the numbers of unemployment has increased, the number of families struggling to afford two meals a day is also growing.
If your condition allows you to, here are some organizations that you can collaborate with and help those who are in need:
- Amigos do Bem
It started in 1993 as a small group of friends committed to fight poverty. Today they are one of the biggest brazilian projects attending to about 75.000 people located in Alagoas, Pernambuco and Ceará. Their work is based on fighting hunger and unshelterness and promoting education.
If you’d like to donate or learn more about the project, go to their website.
Under the leadership of the executive Rachel Maia, the institute gives free training for those who are unemployed and raises funds to fight hunger in São Paulo’s suburbs.
