Jose Marcos Sarabia launches solidarity campaign Juntos Sumamos

The Sarabia Group launches its “Juntos Sumamos” campaign, through which they overturn all of their Corporate Social Responsibility Action into a Containment Plan concerning the Covid-19 Sanitary Emergency in Paraguay, conducting different solidarity actions in two major fronts: to help to communities nearby its companies that are an essential part of the supply chain, and to help the Public Health System.


Throughout the campaign, the contributions will sum the equivalent of 400.000 US dollars. During the campaign “Juntos Sumamos”, the Sarabia Group will donate 121 tons of non-perishable food, which will be aimed to people in vulnerable situations and that will benefit to 5.500 families who will receive the food kits. Each kit contains 22 kilos of non-perishable products from the basic basket (5 kg of rice, 2 kg of beans, 5 kg of flour, 2 bottles of oil 900ml each, 2 kg of sugar, 2 l of milk, 3 kg of pasta and 1 k of salt). In addition, to support the sanitary system in the fight against Covid-19 propagation, they gave 7.000 biosafety equipment and around 17.000 liters of hand sanitizer that are being distributed to the sanitary regions, that have a departmental range and to leading hospitals of the nearby communities from the business group’s supply chain. Sarabia Group’s CEO, José Marcos Sarabia highlighted that the “Juntos Sumamos” campaign enforces the social commitment that has been maintained for nearly 30 years by the business group. “Today more than ever Paraguay needs us to join efforts in order to provide help and support during this challenging social situation. United, at work, the solidarity and the commitment with the people, we’re stronger and we will be able to move forward together gracefully from this battle” he pointed out. Jose Marcos Sarabia explained that, for the distribution of the food kits, the Sarabia Group network of collaborators scattered specially in the inner country, will be key to identify the most needed communities in a way that the impact of the campaign gives a real benefit to the people in vulnerable situation.
