Food-Aid Program

Niños del Lago realised that the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 would mean that we could not go ahead with the planned annual camps due in Oct/Nov. It quickly became very evident that due to the lockdown of the country the most vulnerable children and their families were going to have difficulty accessing food. We wished to do something to help our neighbours and local communities. The decision was taken to use the funds we already had to go towards supplying basic food provisions to as many families as we could through a FOOD-AID PROGRAM.
