Covid19. Colombia. Over 1,100 Households Assisted due to the Pandemic

Council General International

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Bucaramanga (Colombia) is strongly committed to helping the neediest families during this pandemic. For better assistance, support has been requested from local residents, institutions and food companies. The national army has also joined in, and is involved in deliveries.

Thanks to these collaborations, the vincentians belonging to the Conferences of the Parish of Saint Pius X, the Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Providence have served one of the most severely affected districts of the area: over 1,100 households in Brisas de Girardot. 

Although much has been done, we must move forward. As a matter of fact, it is estimated that over 300 households going through a difficult situation have not yet been helped.
