With the world shutting down in response to COVID-19, families are being forced to struggle without food and necessities. Your support can help.
The WHO has been continuing to track the spread of coronavirus (which you can see here) and has officially called titled it a pandemic, indicating that the whole world is at risk. In this unprecedented time, entire countries are being forced to close their cities and restrict movement in an effort to contain the spread before it becomes unmanageable. Despite this, experts continue to state that the situation is likely to worsen.
With the healthcare systems of developed nations struggling to cope, vulnerable and impoverished nations are already starting to show signs of their own struggle too. In this time of need, we must unite to provide support where it is needed most. Our Global COVID-19 charity appeal aims to respond to this need, utilising our network of global food hubs to provide nutrition to those who are being affected or have already been affected by coronavirus.
What Are We Doing to Help?
With your support, we are providing struggling families and communities with hygiene packs, food packs and disinfectant materials to reduce the infectivity rate where we can. COVID-19 has already led to thousands of deaths and many more being hospitalised, resulting in families losing key breadwinners who bring income into the household. Without this income, many are struggling to make ends meet and survive. It’s our goal to help those who are most vulnerable, providing them with up to a month’s worth of food and the materials they need to stay as healthy as possible throughout this period.
