Since schools closed on March 23rd due to the national quarantine, the kids of Alta Guajira, Colombia, have stopped receiving the free meals given at school for each student. Regularly, such meals comprise the only meal a child would have during a day.
Mama Tierra runs a periodic small nutrition programme for malnourished children and seniors. Donate any amount you like and support children and seniors. 600,000 Wayuu inhabit the northernmost tip of South America, in a desertic area called La Guajira, located in both Colombia and Venezuela. Indigenous in this area have no access to running water or electricity. Climate change is making their land increasingly infertile. These conditions make agriculture and food cultivation hardly possible. Poverty and child mortality are major challenges.
Mama Tierra is involved in a nature conservation project in Venezuela to save flamingos in one of the country's most important coastal lagoons. The "Los Olivitos" lagoon is the habitat, shelter and nesting area of the largest population of flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) in the Caribbean. In 1996 the UN declared the lagoon a Ramsar area. It is a wetland of international importance because of its biodiversity. The coastal lagoon is also home to sea turtles and endangered animals such as the manatee, the coastal caiman and the great anteater.
