- This donation will go toward several core areas of intervention to mitigate the crisis’s impact on health, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security and livelihoods
- The money is from the “Ferrovial Together COVID-19” Fund, which has distributed €8.69 million to entities fighting the pandemic in the fields of social issues, health, and research around the world
Due to the emergency situation that has arisen from the coronavirus pandemic, Ferrovial has allocated €300,000 to the Action Against Hunger in Colombia. This NGO is responsible for supporting and working on behalf of those most affected and at risk of poverty through its projects involving water, sanitation and hygiene, and food security and livelihoods. It’s been operating in Colombia since 1998. Since then, it has been able to help more than 90,000 people better their lives.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many who are vulnerable and at risk of exclusion have been in heightened danger. Action Against Hunger has adapted its intervention strategy to expand its reach and help those who need that support more than ever.
The donation will go to increasing coverage for its programs and helping high-risk families living in vulnerable areas, including rural and indigenous populations. They will work in over 20 locations in the capital of Bogota, from the districts of Santa Fe, San Cristóbal, Teusaquillo, Kennedy, Usme, Usaquén, and Ciudad Bolivar.
This is part of the “Ferrovial Together COVID-19” Fund. Through this initiative, the company has already distributed €8.69 million to entities fighting the pandemic in the fields of social issues, health, and research in Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Poland, and Portugal.
