We are sadly seeing increased food demand across the UK and only expect this to get higher. To respond to the situation, Kebire Trust initiated this emergency work to meet the increased demand from vulnerable people as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The project will target the most vulnerable groups such as older people and persons with disabilities without family, vulnerable families, and NHS staff in the Accident and Emergency units in Birmingham. A team from Kebire Trust will conduct a quick assessment and identify those in need. Once the person or the family is identified, the team will deliver necessary food parcels/essentials to their homes. One food parcel could contain a minimum of ten days’ food parcels/essentials.
The beneficiaries will be supported with food parcels/essentials and linked to the relevant charities and local authorities. The project will relieve the immediate pressure of the crisis by providing food parcels/essentials as well as advice and guidance support to help people resolve the crisis that they face.
The project is grounded in the belief that no one in our community should have to face going hungry, and with your support we can help many people. Therefore, please support this urgent appeal and donate generously. Your donation will assist Kebire Trust to provide basic services directly to vulnerable groups and families, and also NHS staff in the Accident and Emergency units in Birmingham during this difficult time. 100% of donations go directly to doing good.
