OUR RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC
Due to the current situation in Guatemala of a lockdown, curfew, local markets being closed, and no public transport, many families are going hungry as so many have lost their jobs.
Food-Aid Program (FAP)
“Every child has the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment and education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy.”
Niños del Lago realized that the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 would mean that we could not go ahead with the planned annual camps due in October, November & December. 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.
The Guatemalan government was very quick to lock down the country with no public transportation, a strict curfew, no movement between departments and even towns and villages, plus many markets closed, along with businesses being shut. The knock-on effect of this has left many families with no, or little, work and no way of getting to markets and stores to purchase food and provisions or sell them. This means they are going hungry.
The decision was therefore taken to supply basic and nutritive food provisions to as many families as we could during this year, 2020. This is our Food-Aid Program (FAP)
