Many of the aids that were deployed in 2020 because of the pandemic had to resurface in the first half of 2021. This is the case of the Common Kitchens of Fondacio Chile, which have reopened in the sectors of El Barrero and La Pincoya, which will offer solidarity lunches to neighbors.
In addition to this, we have launched a donation campaign, to continue to provide this assistance to people in need.
Below we show you how weekly soup kitchens work:
La Pincoya, once a week, Thursday – 100 lunches.
Las Canteras, twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays – 160 lunches.
El Bosque 1, 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 130 lunches.
JV Araucarias, once a week, Fridays – 120 lunches.
Fuerza y Esperanza Collective. This new neighborhood group serves 1 eleven on Fridays – 100 oz.
Fondacio in Chile since 1980
Fondacio’s mission in Chile is to act against the challenges of this time as Christ would do in our place.
Community experience offers spiritual and human growth. Additionally, we train the Young Initiators of Continental Change (IFF America).
Our programs work with children and pre-teens (Biblioteca Los Almendros), disabled (Centro Ocupacional Hortiterapeutico), vulnerable families (“Un Hogar mas digno” “Jesus Carpintero” “Reciclo”,), people in street situations (“Mi Proximo”) and all people with limited resources.
Fondacio has been present in Chile since 1980 in its capital, Santiago.
There is a Children’s Pastoral (6 to 12 years old), different fraternities open to people of all ages (Santiago Gospel, Oasis, Sticks of Hope, Center, etc.) and several community groups of Seniors (people over 70 years). Everyone is invited to participate in various community meetings and retreats throughout the year.
Ignacio Troncoso is responsible for Fondacio Chile, the second responsible is Consuelo Silva. The other members of the Council are: Paula Vargas, Francisco Ríos, Lisette Catarino, Rafael Arcos and Luis de la Vega.
