Food For The Poor has been working with the Order of Malta to get food to the children in arid La Guajira. La Guajira is one of the most vulnerable departments in Colombia that has been dealing with a severe drought for more than three years.

Food For The Poor began serving in Colombia in 2014. The international relief and development organization is working primarily with the Order of Malta, which is one of the oldest lay religious orders of the Catholic Church. The Order of Malta is a neutral, impartial and apolitical organization that facilitates the distribution of needed medical supplies within the South American country.
