Last year, the Libretas Confia initiative was created with the aim of helping families in need in the sectors of El Barrero. The benefit consisted of a passbook that helped registered families with 40,000 pesos, who could use the equivalent money to buy food and household items in the same stores in the sector that had joined the programme.
After the immense help that this meant for the families, today the benefit is opened again, for people who are experiencing financial difficulties. Along with this, a fundraising campaign is being launched for low-income families who have been out of work for months, or who are ill and do not receive benefits from the state.
Today there are ten families who are benefiting from two grocers of the population, who are very grateful to be able to ease the burden of their neighbours.
Below, we invite you to review some images of this new season of a Libreta Confia:
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.
The community experience offers spiritual and human growth. In addition, 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 a street situation ( "Mi Proximo" ) and all people with limited resources.
Fondacio has been operating in Chile since 1980 in its capital Santiago.
There is a Children's Ministry (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 old). Everyone is invited to participate in different community meetings and retreats during 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.
