The needy communities are impacted severely as they face waves of pandemic. A number of community canteens have suspended their services to minimize meal gatherings and lower risks of infection. To help alleviate the plight of the grassroots, Bank of China funded the setting up of 'Food Angel x BOC Food Rescue and Assistance project'. With the cooling capability to retain the quality of food, food items can be delivered efficiently to 8 remote districts twice a day to support up to 360 individuals including elderly who lives alone, individuals with lower mobility, and families with lower income.
Granny May, a 76-year-old who resides alone on the fourth floor in a tenement building, is a service user who benefits from this new service. She has to ascend a flight of stairs with more than 100 steps to reach home. Her only daughter has moved out and rarely visits. Granny May sustains her livelihood by collecting carton boxes usually. However, the number of available boxes dropped drastically as businesses were poor at the restaurants and pharmacies under the pandemic, and her income is directly impacted. Since the project provided support to Granny May, she receives cooked meals and dried food weekly, which eases her cost of living. At the same time, she feels care and warmth from our staff, which brings her comfort in days of hardship.
Please support our cause so we can continue to show care and love for the needy in our community, especially in this challenging time.
