The #GivingTuesdayNow Day is helping organizations arround the globe to show their contributions to the society during the pandemic
Like many organizations which have been making great efforts to relieve the struggles caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, HOOP is also joining the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. Giving Tuesday puts the work of all these amazing initiatives driven by organizations just like us into the spotlight. Today we have a very special chance to showcase the efforts being undertaken to alleviate the situation of millions of people in need around the world.
Thanks to our network of supporters and followers from across the globe, and the hard work of our team, we’ve been able to provide for families in need from our communities in the north of Arequipa. Thanks to your generosity, we’ve delivered a total of 126 baskets (delivered on April 7th and April 22nd), filled with nutritious food and hygiene products, through our latest campaign #LaCanastaSolidaria.
Each food basket includes enough nutritious food to last a family of four for two weeks. As such, the baskets have allowed our families to endure the lockdown in Peru without going hungry. It has also prevented them from being forced to go to work illegally in order to feed their families, which also puts them at risk of infection. This support is critical, especially in countries like Peru in which 71% of the working population unfortunately cannot count on the security and benefits of formal jobs; most of them are consequently struggling due to the lockdown.
Normally, HOOP fights poverty through our educational, social work, and mental health programmes, in addition to workshops and medical campaigns. However, thanks to our supporters, we were able to quickly shift to a humanitarian response to the lockdown. We continue to work on new ways to develop our different programs, so that we can keep impacting on the education and health of our community beyond simply providing food.
