Why are we organizing this collection today?
Because in Chile, the minimum monthly wage is $ 301,000 (375 USD) and since March 2020, as a result of the pandemic, many families have been affected by unemployment and reduced income.
Today we are in total quarantine in Santiago, therefore 7 million of people have been affected by the pandemic. However the effectiveness of measures to avoid infections has not been successful, product of the growing need of families to leave their homes and obtain food.
What are “Common Pots”?
They are similar to social canteens, but they are self-managed. They are spaces where the neighbors, through the help of third parties and sometimes with the help of themselves get money and food to organize and cook for a large groups of people, who are suffering moments of poverty and unemployment. With this kind of organization, fewer people leave their homes and less people is exposed to be infected with Covid-19 infections.
We are a group of friends, who made our first campaign 3 weeks ago. We started by asking for help of our family and closest friends, our coworkers and other people who voluntarily joined us. We raised $ 1,500,000 (almost 2,000 USD) and with those earnings we bought food and personal hygiene items that we delivered in a very poor area of Santiago, called Cerro Navia.
Why do we need you?
Because at this time, the food and the third-party help are over, and the people started to leave their homes again, looking for food, putting them at risk of contagion. For this reason we started a second fundraising campaign with the purpose of buying food and personal hygiene items and taking them to the “common pots” of Cerro Navia.
Who is the help for?
With your donations, we will help the Cerro Navia sector, where there are 10 “common pots” that feed approximately 2,900 people each week.
If you can stay at home, because you have a job and food every day, we ask you to help us with this campaign.
A big hug.
