Food For The Poor

When disaster strikes, we often think of the need for housing, food, clean water or other medical assistance in the immediate response efforts. But in order to truly serve the needs of an affected community or region, long-term planning and development is necessary.

Food For The Poor

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (Oct. 16, 2019) – On a recent visit, Minuto de Dios and Food For The Poor talked about a shared vision for how they can help Venezuelan migrants rebuild their lives in Colombia.

The two charities want to provide counseling and job skills training to Venezuelans who have fled to Colombia because of their home country’s economic collapse.

An estimated 30,000 Venezuelans are entering Colombia every day, including about 5,000 in the border city of Cucuta.
