SOLIDARY QUARANTINE

Huellas & Futuro's main goal is to eliminate domestic violence in order to ensure that other evils in society will also be eradicated. Therefore, we understand that extreme poverty can trigger episodes of domestic violence, hence, Huellas & Futuro, thanks to the support of BASAID, together with several volunteers, donors and with the logistics of the ECEM Cochabamba from the Armed Forces, it is reaching more than 200 families in the Karakara area of Cochabamba, with food baskets for approximately 1 month, aiming to protect mainly the health of more than 400 children mitigating the malnutrition rates of the region, avoiding potential spread of COVID19 due to displacement in search of food and preventing eventual acts of domestic violence.

WE WANT TO REACH EVERYBODY

In these difficult times we would like to know how everyone is, hence, we have developed this questionnaire for Spanish speakers in order to know if anybody is going through episodes of violence, it takes only 3 minutes to answer it. If you know anybody that you think that could be in danger, please forward this form through any digital means and we promise you to do our best to help effectively.
