“If they can’t work, they can’t eat. It really is as simple as that.’
The words of our partners in India echo around the world.
In Syria, Uganda, Guatemala, Bangladesh and Kenya. In Sri Lanka, in Albania… our grassroots partners tell us the same thing:
Lockdown doesn’t really keep vulnerable families safe at home. They are starving at home.
They are more scared of hunger than they are of the coronavirus. After all, they face most illnesses and diseases without the benefit of medical help, too often inaccessible or unaffordable. So what’s new?
But while we can’t give them medicine to fight the coronavirus, we can give them food so they survive lockdown.
Will you help us?
Global Care has been busy in lockdown. Working through grassroots partners based in disadvantaged communities, we don’t have to set up a network, or fly in a consultant. We act, without delay.
We’ve been feeding vulnerable families in ten countries, and providing soap and hygiene tools to help keep people safe.
Any donation of any size will help a vulnerable family fight the pandemic which is bringing the whole world to its knees.
£5 provides water and soap for over a week in Kibera, Kenya, a slum without running water, so over 700 people per day can wash their hands.
£50 buys two sacks of food for vulnerable families in Bangladesh.
We believe every life is precious, in every country, on every continent.
