Latin America

América Latina

Latin America is the world´s region with the highest income inequality according to the 2019 Human Development Report of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), released in December.

 

The report indicated the richest 10% in Latin America concentrates a larger share of income than in any other region (37%). And vice versa: the poorest 40% receive the smallest share (13%).

 

Concerned about the inequality present in the region and the great disparity in Latin America, we have been working for more than …… years in the field, strengthening and collaborating so that girls, boys, men and women can overcome this problem and have opportunities where they can develop their skills and abilities.

 

We promote and protect the rights of girls, boys, women and men living in economic poverty, in one of the most unequal regions of the planet.

What is happening?

Latin America is facing the global battle against COVID-19 that will test national and regional capacities to face a challenge that goes far beyond a health crisis. The different responses that have been given so far questions the capacity of the regional coordination and exposes the fragility of institutions and the social model.

 

More than a year ago after reporting its first case of COVID-19, Latin America remains one of the global epicenters of the pandemic. The number of infections and deaths in the region continues to rise, even in countries like Chile, where vaccination has been as good as most of developed nations.

 

New confinements, beds filled with people in intensive care, records of the infected and fear of the new variants are the daily reality in the region.

 

The coronavirus crisis threatens the stability of Latin America and comes after a wave of protests that shook the region in the previous months, postponing deep-rooted conflicts that will resurface when the alarm ends. The measures of distance taken and the fear of infection will temporarily demobilize the population, but the causes of the protests will not only not disappear but may even get worse due to the impact the epidemic will have on the population, both medically and economically. In most of Latin America the access to quality healthcare is very unequal.

What we do?

Despite the fact that its own teams have been affected by COVID, REMAR responds and turns their attention to vulnerable groups. Since the pandemic was declared in the Latin America, Remar has acted in two ways.

 

1st Immediate Attention: From March until now.

  • Delivery of kits to vulnerable groups: hygiene and personal protection.
  • Delivery of food aid to vulnerable groups.
  • Development of prevention and care protocols for the teams.

 

2nd Medium-term attention: From June onwards.

This second stage has focused on adapting ongoing projects by reorienting them mainly towards improving livelihoods and access to basic services necessary for life.
