Farmers standing firm against Covid-19

• 22 July 2021

The year 2020 has undoubtedly been marked by COVID-19, bringing with it a host of difficulties, and accentuating already existing crises in many of the countries where we operate. But the crisis has also revealed the resilience of the farming communities we support, as well as the success of short supply chains and local channels for supplying the population.

In Latin America, a continent that has been particularly affected by the consequences of the coronavirus, our partners have stood up and succeeded in providing local solutions to the challenges imposed by this pandemic. In Africa, local networks, rural funds, and agro-ecological practices have proved their worth in absorbing the shock wave.

Thus, SOS Faim, with its 58 local partners, was able to support, in 2020, more than 1,800,000 farmers across nine countries of intervention.

Discover in words and images, the SOS Faim projects that have marked the year 2020 to bring about a more just, sustainable and hunger-free world.
