In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, a Jewish non-profit in Aventura has been working with the world’s top brands, philanthropic organizations, and volunteer groups to bring assistance to the most affected communities around the world.
CADENA International, an inclusive prevention-focused global network committed to providing disaster-relief to vulnerable populations worldwide, has aided 1,402,266 people in COVID-19-affected regions since March by providing:
- 13,039 meals
- 10,800 basic necessities
- 17,686 COVID-19 health personnel kits
- 77,305 COVID-19 protection articles and more
And the work is just getting started. CADENA International will also distribute over 100,000 surgical masks to Latin American countries whose communities have been greatly affected by COVID-19. More than 10,000 masks will be hand-delivered by employees and volunteers from CADENA to hospitals and healthcare centers in each country, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico.
Utilizing the resources of the Jewish Diaspora and multinational corporations, CADENA, and its allies have carried over 350 missions in 20 countries as of March 2020.
