Food Drive helping hand

Covid-19 virus crisis has affected people across the globe. One area that this crisis will impact greatly is the food security of the vulnerable people in different countries. Unfortunately hunger is no longer a problem found in the developing world because many in developed countries even when they work, do not have enough  food.

Many people who are homeless depend on projects such as our Helping Hand project for food donations. With this crisis , many organizations such as ours are not able to provide the necessary support because the centres where the kitchens we use are located have also been closed. However, we have to look for other alternatives, not just to support the homeless but also those whose food security will be threatened by this Covid-19 crisis.

We are organizing a food drive to help us support those who need help now. Interested people can make a donation of raw food items or make a donation via our bank account for the  use of the helping hand food drive. More details are in the flyer above.
