**UPDATE: Thank you! We successfully raised sufficient funds to assemble 80 baskets + extra support for select families. Baskets will be delivered on December 18. A follow-up will be posted !
Manos Unidas’ #GivingTuesday campaign will provide DIRECT COVID RELIEF FOOD+GIFT BASKETS to currently registered Manos Unidas Peru families. Purchase a basket for $35 and bring joy to our families during this time of darkness.
Many of our families are suffering from extreme economic hardship due to halt of tourism caused by the pandemic. Some have been evicted from their homes, others are struggling on less than $7/day. This time is usually full of joy, celebration, gathering, song and gifts for the children, now many are struggling to even keep their lights on.
Each basket contains 5lbs of dry food (rice, sugar, grain, legume, quinoa), a Christmas cake, hot chocolate, some canned goods, and a small gift for our student.
Manos Unidas Peru will be organizing a local distribution team in Cusco to make sure the baskets reach 100% of our families
Campaign runs November 25-December 4, 2020
