Salesians in Bogota aid poor families hard hit by COVID lockdown

Bogotá, Colombia, May 28, 2020 / 08:21 pm (CNA).- Salesian ministries in Bogota, Colombia, have joined forces to feed the families of the children and young people they serve at the Saint Francis de Sales Oratory youth center, which they run in the poor, crime ridden Las Cruces neighborhood.

With the lockdown extended into June, many poor families are finding themselves running out of food and funds for other necessities.
