How does the campaign work?

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have managed to raise donations of food and hygiene kits through our network. But we still need to raise funds to bear the costs of the team behind all the logistics that makes this operation possible!

Till today they are all working without any financial help, but with the pandemic growing so does the need to commit more hours on helping more people and without them thousands of people will end up with no support, no food and no basic items toprotect themselves from COVID-19.

Donate now

Since March 25th, more than 2000 families were granted with Basic-needs grocery packages and hygiene Kits. Everything delivered by our 20 people staff.

USD 20,000

With this monthly fee, not only will we be able to keep projects alive in this difficult time, but we will also be able to triple the number of people on the front lines to combat hunger.

We believe, those who are donating their time, strength and energy to help others since the beginning of these projects deserve, at least, to receive a fair financial support so they can keep on making a difference to the people of Rocinha, now and in the future.
