Program for Venezuela

Evaluation of the centers - Food Program

  • Each center must complete a template entitled Project Evaluation that contains the data of the work they do, name and directors, contact information, social networks.

  • Once the format submitted has been studied, the executive director for Venezuela conducts a review of the center's social networks to validate activities they have recently carried out.

  • We conduct a telephone interview with the director of the center in order to know details about the work.

  • The local coordinator of AVEF conducts a visit to the center to validate the address and work of the center.

  • The project is presented before AVEF evaluation committee, formed by the Executive Directors and the President, they are in charge of deciding whether or not the center is suitable for the help.

  • Once the center is accepted, acceptance mail is sent and it is requested to fill out admission forms

  • AVEF delivers goods and/or deposits a monthly amount to the logistics coordinator to proceed to supply food according to the approved plan

  • Each center delivers a monthly report including the number of people benefited.

  • The Regional Coordinator reviews and approves the reports and posts activities in social networks and keeps statistical control of the help to be shared with the Directors

Programs

This program covers the following sub programs:

 

HEALTH PROGRAM

 

It consists of collecting medical supplies, medicines, personal hygiene and hygiene products, infant formulas and non-perishable foods to be distributed free of charge to our network of allied organizations in Venezuela. CVEF does not have a fixed headquarters for the storage of donations in Venezuela for a cost issue and to protect the physical integrity of the people who are in charge of the aid. Shipments from Canada are destined to the warehouse of the transport agency that provides the service in Venezuela so that each coordinator can pick up the boxes that are sent door to door to each collaborator for immediate distribution.

 

We have designed a list of medicines, medical supplies, personal hygiene products to inform the communities about the donations we receive to help the needy, these are:

 

  • Non prescription medications

 

Pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, antipyretics or medications to relieve flu symptoms, cough suppressants, antiallergics, digestives, polyvitamins for children, adults, the elderly and pregnant women, calcium, magnesium, iron, folic acid.

  • First Aid

 

Gauze, bandages, dressings, adhesives, turnstiles, physiological solution, ringer lactate, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, cotton, instant pads, bandages and other creams for blows, iodopovidine, medical bags and briefcases, adhesive sutures, thermal blanket, topical adhesive, resuscitator manual or selfinflating bag.

Since we are concerned about the high cost of animal protein, we are evaluating the possibility of providing one glass of milk daily for the children, in order to complement the proteins, fat and carbohydrates they need for their healthy development. The glass of milk would guarantee at least 8,3 g of protein/day that could represent for most of the children more than 25% of what they require daily.
