Delivering Humanitarian Aid in Colombia and Ecuador
At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, GTE’s employees took it upon themselves to organize donations to help families-in- need, along with providing personal protective equipment and medical supplies to local authorities. The drive raised COP $46,280,000 which was
then matched by the company.
GTE also supported the most vulnerable by delivering thousands of medical items and food baskets to communities in Putumayo, the Middle Magdalena Valley and Sucumbíos in Ecuador to help them address COVID-19 and the financial crisis.
The food hampers, sourced from local providers, could feed a family of four for approximately two weeks. The hampers contained nutritional goods including rice, milk, meats, pastas, grains, eggs and beans, along with basic hygiene supplies.
