The lockdown in Costa Rica has dramatically affected the most vulnerable families and workers whose livelihoods come mostly from tourism. In the wake of COVID-19, families who were already facing extreme challenges are now unable to work and feed their families.
In partnership with the Municipality of Nicoya, KCA is providing vital resources to 500 vulnerable families. The emergency supply baskets contain essential food and hygiene products, providing the necessary resources for a safe and healthy environment for children.
$30 helps feed a family with young children for one month.
From the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Costa Rican Government based their decisions and actions on scientific evidence, putting the preservation of life and the protection of health before other issues. Costa Rica has not won the battle yet, there are still challenges ahead: high unemployment and entrenched poverty. The authorities acknowledge that almost 500,000 jobs could be lost due to the pandemic, increasing the vulnerability of thousands of families. More Costa Rican’s cannot afford food which has led to a high number of families left to go hungry; generating an unprecedented health crisis.

Without our amazing partners and supporters, KCA wouldn't be able to make this possible.
Municipalidad de Nicoya, located in the Costarican tourist area with the support of the Central Government's National Emergency Commission has launched a food program benefiting vulnerable children aged from 1 to 6. The municipality has coordinated the logistics of food delivery benefiting 80 children.
