Wishing everyone safety. It has been a challenging time here in Colombia, as in many other countries, and many communities have been having a challenging time feeding their families because of the crisis. Our online store is open doing business as usual. Part of our objective is to continue providing jobs for the marginal indigenous groups and women artisans as well as keep the sustainable wages active. We are all working virtually and are lending a hand to those in need as much as we can.
If you would like to make donations, we are working closely with foundations in Colombia to bring food and clothing to vulnerable children and their families as well. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many families in marginal areas will be dying of starvation. Families that sustain their day-to-day through informal activities are being faced with extreme situations of poverty, unhealthy living conditions, and violence. Fundación Granitos de Paz and Fundación Remanso de Amor are two, not-for-profit organizations we have partnered with to bring relief to communities at risk in Cartagena, Colombia.
