This is an Urgent Appeal to support the most vulnerable people during a difficult time especially the elderly, single mothers, isolated families and individuals.
Zia ul Ummah Foundation is jointly working with Derby Crisis Response Team to support wider communities during this difficult time.
How will your donation help?
We are liaising with some local shops and nation food suppliers to help us prepare for a difficult time. In the past 48 hours we have helped over 150 people, and we believe this will rise to thousands in the coming week.
We will purchase the following essential items and provide food packs to needy families. hundreds of volunteers will be working on the ground to support this work.
Just £20 will help us to make one family essential food box which will have a variety of items from the following list.
Why are we doing this?
Coronavirus continues to spread across the United Kingdom and some experts have predicted that millions will be affected and many will die. This is already having an effect on the daily lives of the most vulnerable and the situation is only likely to get worse.
Experts are recommending that people avoid large crowds, stockpile shelf-stable foods in case they end up quarantined, and stay home from work. While this advice may work for those who are able to work from home, for too many low-income people, remote work is not an option.
Many low-income children rely on free and reduced school breakfasts and lunches for their daily nutrition meaning their families will have to find the money for these meals if schools close down for extended periods. At the same time, low-income parents can’t always afford child care when their school-age kids are suddenly home all day. This means they may not able to go to work.
Not only are the elderly the most vulnerable to dying from coronavirus but they’re also among the poorest here in the UK. They are the least able to stock up on groceries and supplies. Shelves are going empty and it is the elderly and newborns who will suffer the most.
We are also preparing elderly packs and newborn baby packs consisting of essentials, which will be distributed to those who are struggling to afford the costs.
Our national helpline is here to provide support to anyone who requires information on Coronavirus, support during isolation or any other help. If you know anyone who needs help please share our contact number with them. 0300 302 1944
