COVID-19 Hunger Relief Edition
COVID-19 is a global health crisis. But it could also lead to a food security crisis if proper measures are not taken. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, more than 820 million people across the globe are already suffering from hunger. Epidemics and pandemics have negative impacts on food and nutrition security — particularly for vulnerable populations including children, women, the elderly and the poor. Hence, the need arises for a food intervention programme like ours.
As lockdown measures have increased and the demand for home delivery of groceries with it, we came up with a collaborative and remote way to provide food and aid its delivery to beneficiaries. Considering the social distancing, we’ve adopted online technology solutions to provide food bags to vulnerable families across 10 communities identified by our volunteers – FoodHEs.
Attached to these food bags are COVID-19 safety guidelines and nutrition measures from verified sources to promote hygiene and prepare meals on a low budget from locally available healthy foods. Through Communeating Chiefs these food items are bought from the local markets in the intervention areas, encouraging their income sources and empowering them this period. Take action today!
