As the world marks the pandemic’s one-year anniversary, we’re sharing a video update, which shows how our supporters have made it possible to help more than 680,000 children and adults stay safe during these challenging times.

Community members like Idalina from Paraguay are making it possible for the most vulnerable families to get the support they need. “Here we cover several surrounding communities that come to receive the food we cook… Our job is to reach children who need the most, to provide them with a little food…. thanks to Children Believe and partner Crecer,” she explains.

So far, we’ve supported more than 110,000 children and adults through the distribution of food and other basic essentials.

We’re also making sure students can access online education. “At this critical time ROPES (a local partner) and Children Believe have supplied tablets for CLC (creative learning centres) teachers in my village,” says Harika, a student from India.

Check out the video below to learn more about our work providing lifesaving education to reduce spread of the virus, PPE equipment, food rations, child production and education supplies during the pandemic.
