We encourage the balanced development of the country’s children
Venezuela is one of the countries where the work of Fundación MAPFRE is most present. The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is located in the northern part of South America, with coasts on the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Thanks to the oil industry, the country has experienced periods of great economic growth, interrupted by phases of political and social instability.
This association carries out the project “Nutritional support in pre-school years”, which helps 68 boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 6, from disadvantaged families in risk of social exclusion.
