ATIX Mulher (Brazil) is the female branch of the Indigenous organisation of Women’s Movement of the Xingu Indigenous Reservation Association. During the pandemic in 2020, the inhabitants of the Xingu Indigenous Reservation were heavily affected in their food security. Atix Mulher has campaigned for food, hygiene products and agricultural tools for the 16 ethnic groups of the reservation. It has helped gather food donations and has set out a collective crowdfunding that has benefitted 130 villages. Currently, items such as crafts and honey, produced by the villagers, help with capital to keep the small agriculture-based businesses running.
During the pandemic, the Deep Poverty Network was established in 2019 as a solidarity network “that carries rights-based work in dozens of poor neighbourhoods that tackle urban poverty” in Istanbul. Besides their educational and policy activities on the root causes, dimensions and implications of poverty as lived by the most vulnerable (homeless, unemployed, Roma, and on the brink of starvation), the Deep Poverty Network carried out a food access campaign to 1000 families, 60 of which are women-led. It was founded by activists, researchers, sociologists, psychologists, and journalists.
