“The united Farmworkers Pandemic Relief Fund was created by Justice for Migrant Women and Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) in response to the threat that the Coronavirus represents to the more than three million men and women who work to maintain food security in the US. The money raised through these fundraising efforts will be given to organizations working towards ensuring that the farmworkers in the US and Puerto Rico have basic needs like food, baby formula, diapers, emergency financial assistance for medical needs and other types of help during this crisis,” explains the official spokesperson of the event.

Altísimo Live’s hosts included actress Eva Longoria, and iHeart Latino president Enrique Santos.
