Your Solidarity Directly Supports the Community of Nuevo Amanecer

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the community recently asked us to provide assistance for the bulk purchase of basic food stuffs: corn, beans, rice, and sugar.

  • Your $100 donation buys beans, rice, corn meal for tortillas and atol (a corn and milk drink), sugar, and oil to feed 10 families of five for a week.
  • Your $50 donation buys all the foods above for 5 families of five for a week.
  • Your $20 donation provides all the foods above, plus noodles, oatmeal, onions, and tomatoes for 1 family of five for two weeks. ​​

We provided the $975 in requested funds, and the food was distributed throughout the community. While we were very happy to provide the support--and continue to support requests during this emergency—our expenditures in this area may reduce our ability to fund our future commitments to essential scholarships and the community’s clean water project.
