Why develop projects for nutritional accompaniment and access to clean water?
43% of the children between 0 and 12 years old that are part of our programs in Venezuela and Colombia present some degree of malnutrition.
According to the NGO Cáritas, 35% of children in Venezuela are severely malnourished. While in Sub-Saharan Africa the rate is 23.8%. Severe child malnutrition increased 100% in 14 states in Venezuela. This is due to the fact that since 2018, a family requires 98 minimum wages to cover their basic food expenses.
