As is often the case when disaster strikes, the most vulnerable among us have been the hardest hit. In the wake of COVID-19, families who were already facing extreme challenges are now unable to work and feed their families.
El Salvador is among the countries most affected by poverty, violence and torn social fabric. During this crisis, the level of poverty has become even more extreme and we must intervene quickly to prevent long-term negative impacts on children’s physical, cognitive and emotional development. The current emergency situation prompted Puro Surf to respond immediately by providing food to over 600 families living along its coastline, and then to initiate a campaign to help more families. KCA decided to join Puro Surf and other local organizations to help and has committed to feeding 5,000 families for 2 months.
