COVID-19 emergency food packages and school supplies delivery (March-December 2020)
With the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on indigenous communities, where both food insecurity and malnutrition have increased, we prioritized Nutritional Support & Education as one of the focuses of the Almaya Fund in 2020, with the goal of tackling the crisis of malnutrition among Guatemalan children.
We were able to bring multiple rounds of essential food packages (eggs, rice, beans, flour, etc.) to every women in our cooperative.
