However we’re working to reach more Colombian cities such as Barranquilla and Cartagena

Our purpose is to streamline international aid in the form of food coupon donations through our alliance with giving To Colombia (G2C) and Grupo Argos NGO. We offer the following food coupon donations: 


$6 USD feeds a single four-person family for or approximately one week

$25 USD feeds a single four-person family for approximately one month


The food coupons will be distributed by Grupo Éxito and Mercados La Recetta, which are two leading Colombian supermarkets.

We would love your support! You can become a COL5VID Ambassador. Reach out to us here or through our social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, or email and we will give you further instructions.

We recently managed to get one of our allies, Grupo Argos NGO to do a 1–1 dollar match for every donation. This means that for every dollar that we raise, they will also donate one more dollar to our cause.
