Donations in April allow the donation of 117 basic baskets to poor families in 7 neighborhoods of Timóteo
Fighting hunger has become a constant struggle for Ajudôu since the beginning of the Covid19 pandemic. Last month, the ONG reactivated the online campaign Ajudôu Vs. Coronavirus to collect food for the most needy families among its students. During April, 117 food baskets were donated in the neighborhoods Bandeirantes, Ana Moura, Novo Tempo, Jardim Vitória, Cachoeira do Vale, Bela Vista and Macuco.
The ONG that has been offering sports classes since 1995 to children in situations of social vulnerability in several cities in Minas Gerais had its activities interrupted on March 17 of last year. Since then, the team has mobilized to help students in another way. With the support of large companies and partners, supplies, masks and gel alcohol were collected for the poorest. About 3300 basic food baskets were distributed, in 2020, in 14 cities in the state.
“We never thought we would reactivate the campaign in 2021, but unfortunately we are at the worst moment of the pandemic when it comes to misery. That’s why we need donations to bring food to those who are hungry. We want to distribute 500 food baskets to the families of our students who are in greater difficulty”, highlights Júlio César Lana Jaques, Founder and Executive Director of Ajudôu.
The equivalent of 117 basic baskets have already been raised. The donations turned into food on the table of families like Shayane Falgado, 22 years old, 2 children, unemployed, resident of the Bandeirantes neighborhood in Timóteo. “There was already a lack of food on the table. The basket arrived at a great time”, comments Shayane.
Donations, which so far have come from small businesses and individuals, cannot stop this month. Make a PIX of any amount and help this fight. Those who are hungry are in a hurry.
