Pereira, April 20, 2024. The governor of Risaralda Juan Diego Patiño began this Thursday, through the Secretariat of Women, Family and Social Development, the delivery of food supplements to more than 330 families in four communes of Pereira.

“In the department we have a figure of 60 thousand Rirasaldens who are in extreme poverty, that is, who are enduring hunger. Today with these deliveries we are mitigating this problem. We have also made deliveries from the 14 municipalities and today from the capital, prioritizing boys, girls, adolescents and people with disabilities,” the Governor stated.

The beneficiary communes were Villasantana, Oriente, Río Otún and del Café, for a total of 1,141 places.

María Elsy Torres, a resident of the Coffee Commune, highlighted that these deliveries are essential to complete the nutrition of the less fortunate population.

“These deliveries, like the Bienvenina, are very helpful because it is a very important complement to the diet, not only for adults, but for children,” said.

Ana Beiba Ospina, another of the beneficiaries of these deliveries, expressed that: “Very grateful for this Government program; This food is wonderful, very important for older people like me. “Very grateful to the Governor who is here personally making the delivery,” he pointed out.
