Here Are Some of the Worldwide Campaigns that are Being Carried Out:
In Europe, the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL) decided to meet a 25% increase in demand with regards to last year, and provided assistance to 1.1 million disadvantaged people. They calculated that within a few months the Pandemic would leave up to 1.5 million more Spaniards in vulnerable situations. For these reasons, they launched “Operation Kilo COVID-19”, from April 22nd to May 6th, which, in the case of Madrid, managed to gather 1.3 million kilos of basic foodstuff.
In Latin American countries, enterprising women, counting on sewing machines and also sewing by hand, make textile masks, as part of the preventive sanitary measures for COVID-19.
Other projects, such as the Mexican “I Do Errands MX”, receive orders through Social Networks and WhatsApp, to do ready-made purchases of food and medicines for people so they do not have to leave their homes. And in some neighborhoods of Lima (Peru), people at risk, such as the elderly, hang white fabrics to indicate to people their need for help with shopping.
Other renowned brands, have also contributed food and medical supplies, as in the case of Ferrari, with shifted its production capabilities to manufacture respirators. The world around, there are countless examples of solidarity that makes us more united than ever.
