Some 805 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That's about one in nine people on earth. [1. Source:State of Food Insecurity in the World, FAO, 2014]...
Despite of improvement in the overall conditions of Colombia - Colombia has upper middle income yet inequality level is very high- there are 32.7 and 10.4 percent of people living in poverty and extreme poverty respectively, and 43 percent are food insecure.
That's A LOT of people hungry!!
The Banco de Alimentos de Bogotá [Bogotá's Food Bank] is a non-profit run by the Catholic Church in Colombia, who partnering with private companies and corportations, provide food to more than 193 thousand people, with a goal to reach 500,000.
In a time of expending, gifts, and even excess, please give a little to those who have naught.
You can make your contribution here, as many times as you want, or if you feel better, you can also do it directly to the Banco de Alimentos.
