MIGRANTS CHILDREN IN COLOMBIA FACING HUNGER & COVID-19 PANDEMIC RELIEF FUND

We stand alongside those who need it most and fight to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on migrant children in Colombia.

Fundacion Comparte por una vida, Colombia

Children and Youth

Our story

Facing the emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic, at Fundación Comparte Por Una Vida, Colombia we are working to reduce hunger in children, women, and families at risk who have been affected by migration into Colombia.

Because we understand that COVID-19 does not distinguish between passports or borders, we serve both Colombian and Venezuelan migrants who are at a higher risk and vulnerability due to the situation.

THE PROBLEM:

  • Today there are about 2 million migrants in Colombian territory.
  • 70% are children and adolescents.
  • 75% make a living from informal, low income and unstable jobs
  • Before COVID-19, they had difficulties to obtain basic needs such as food, shelter and health, but now they are exposed to a greater situation of vulnerability because they don’t have the necessary means to survive.

WHAT DO WE DO?

The purpose of Comparte por una vida, Colombia (CPUV) is to promote the stabilization of communities affected by mixed migratory movements in Colombia. However, it has been shown that a high degree of vulnerability hinders the process. The foundation’s commitment to providing solutions to the immediate needs of food access of migrant communities and recipients during the season of compulsory preventive isolation in Colombia, stems from this precise situation.

WHERE?

CPUV, supports families in the following places in Colombia:

  • La Parada, Villa del Rosario (Norte de Santander), giving continuity to our “Stay in School” program promoting food and nutritional security for children and adolescents from migrant, returning and foster communities.
  • Cúcuta (Norte de Santander), in alliance with the local government and local foundations, we provide support for the vulnerable, migrants, returnees and foster special population (including but not limited to elderly, disability, sex workers, children with HIV)
  • Bogotá DC, and Cartagena in alliance with local organizations that support migrant, returnee and host populations in a vulnerable situation.

HOW WE DO IT?

The actions are carried out directly by us, delivering aid house-by-house and in Educational Institutions to be able to register and follow up on the families the foundation provides help to.

The grants we provide consist of:

  • FEEDING KITS: covering 50% of the necessary intake for 4 family members for 25 days.
  • Delivering malnutrition treatments (RUTF) to beneficiaries of the Stay in School program.
  • Develop protocols of prevention and control measures with malnourished children and pregnant women.
  • Promoting hand-washing campaigns.
  • Deliver messages about the importance of proper diet and hygiene especially directed at the beneficiary groups
  • Monitoring the socioeconomic impact in homes of our beneficiary groups.
  • JOIN US:

WITH YOUR HELP WE WILL FIGHT AGAINST THIS PANDEMIC THAT FILLS WITH HUNGER  MANY CHILDREN AND FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY.

TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER
