Hand in Hand Missions

Humanitarian Aid

Delivering help HAND IN HAND.

CADENA delivers goods collected through donations, to vulnerable communities or those affected by disasters, Hand-in-Hand and directly to those affected.

We Act In:

Natural disasters – Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and more.
Humanitarian crises – Marginalization and forced displacement.

We implement Hand-in-Hand Missions to deliver help to the communities that need it most. We have carried out missions to rescue lives, deliver basic food pantries and carry out medical, psychological and dental consultations by volunteers who distribute the supplies, give workshops, perform recreational activities for children, and provide free assistance.

IN ADDITION TO MATERIAL HELP, CADENA DELIVERS A GESTURE OF FRATERNITY AND HOPE.

Medical Consultations

Profesional doctors attend as volunteers to most of our humanitarian missions, delivering life-saving consultations to those who need it the most.

These consultations range from general medical checkups to first aid treatment of wounds and delivery of medical supplies such as medicines. This is done thanks to the donations of our Link Companies.

Psyco-social help

Simultaneously, volunteer psychologists and other mental health experts perform free and psychological and therapeutic consultations.

This is a precious activity to carry out in the midst of a disaster. A large sector of the population suffers from emotional trauma and shock due to material or human loss.

Dental Consultations

Another precious activity carried out by professional CADENA volunteers are dental consultations. 

Oral and dental infections are common sources of diseases in vulnerable communities. We perform everything from general clean-ups to extractions and other complex procedures.

Coexistence

Our leaders from CADENA Youth carry out multiple social and decompression activities for community members and especially children, who are the most vulnerable to disasters and crises.

This is how we reinforce our bonds, promoting friendship, brotherhood, and overall happiness in the community.
