The whole world, without exception, is going through a most difficult period. Times in which all countries are deploying measures to mitigate the social and economic consequences of this pandemic.
COVID19 is colour blind and respects no borders. However, developing countries are suffering intensifying harm. In these regions, the level of inequality is much bigger than in the Northern Hemisphere. Thus, this crisis definitely has a greater impact on the more vulnerable populations. Particularly the lower income sectors and the poor. Very few, if any, are the resources they have to fight the pandemic. So, what was true and necessary before this pandemic, it is even more true and necessary now.
The initiatives to alleviate hunger in vulnerable communities must continue or be implemented.
Just as health services, security forces, cleaners, truck drivers, suppliers, and many other essential workers continue working on the frontlines, private and public institutions can also make an extra effort to contribute to relieving the negative consequences of this pandemic.
We must always make room for initiatives that generate hope and responses to people’s problems. And at Banabio we want to play a role in this society-wide effort and help the people most in need.
With the lockdown suspending some types of work for weeks, it is essential to ensure that food reaches those that are hardest hit by the crisis. It is known that the impacts of an organization go beyond the economic ones and Banabio still continues to push social initiatives.
