The Fundación CMR – Comedor Santa María is accompanied by Fundación MAPFRE in their “Feed a child” program in Santa Fe, Mexico City, which offers a well-balanced diet and human training to 330 vulnerable children in the area.
The beneficiaries of this project are between 4 months and 16 years old or are pregnant or breastfeeding women who live in extreme poverty.
The first program of the project is the nutritional project by means of which the Fundación CMR offers a daily meal to children in order to support low-income families.
These meals provide 65% of the Recommended Daily Allowance for the beneficiaries. They are approved by nutritional experts and worked on with the WHO.
The second program, entitled “Educate in Freedom”, seeks to empower children by providing them with tools to help them learn about universal values and so they can act in a way that is worthy of human dignity. This program works on developing their human abilities.
The Fundación CMR has spent the last 13 years working on the nutrition of children in Mexico and transforming their lives. It has developed its work in collaboration with the comedores Santa María and other organizations in 13 Mexican states.
