WHY DO WE NEED MORE FOOD

Number of families struggling to afford food rose steeply in pandemic and remains high, especially among vulnerable and marginalized homes and communities including elderly, special needs and unemployed. The number of households having difficulty putting food on the table grew sharply over the past year due to COVID-19’s far-reaching health and economic impacts and remains high relative to pre-pandemic levels as many companies downsized or closed down completely leaving many women with children unable to feed their families or afford basics such as utilities, rent, digital devices, medical and education support.

Over the last months with funds raised, in kind and cash donations, we have distributed about 400 food parcels to families who are food insecure.

Daily we get about 7-8 calls for food support by a wide cross section of our society, while we attempt to help as much as we can; our efforts are not enough to support everyone.

To support the current we would need to distribute at least 50 food parcels a week at a cost of USD1000, continue to contribute and share our appeal with friends and families to assist those who need help.
