Coronavirus Crisis Campaign

Why we need your help

OUR FAMILIES ARE SUFFERING.

THEY ARE HUNGRY, ISOLATED, FRIGHTENED.

GIVE NOW TO OUR CORONAVIRUS CRISIS CAMPAIGN.


Solidarity Sports is a charity that improves the confidence of children recovering from chronic trauma. We pride ourselves in consistently caring for children throughout the year. Sadly, we have been forced to put all our projects on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our families live in poverty and cannot afford to bulk buy. As some food and household essentials run out, anxiety and stress increases, exasperating existing mental health issues. One mother recently told us, 'Every other day I top-up my electricity meter. How can I do this when I have to self-isolate and the shops are closed?' They are struggling to cope with this unprecedented situation, which will worsen if the government closes schools.   

We refuse to sit idle during this crisis. With your help, we aim to support our families by:

Delivering care packages with essential toiletries (nappies, wipes, soap), dry foods (pasta, rice, lentils). We'll also include books, skipping ropes, and board games to help engage our children with complex needs and reduce tension at home. 

Mentoring one-on-one trips for our most vulnerable children to local, open spaces. Home is not a safe space for everyone. We work with children who are exposed to domestic violence and drug abuse.  

Delivering our School Holiday Easter project through interactive livestreams of dance tutorials, cooking, arts activities, yoga and more. This is also key in tackling loneliness.       

Purchasing laptops / Wii Fit for families to enable them to contact isolated loves ones, take part in our livestream and watch educational programmes, such as David Attenborough on BBCiPlayer. Wii Fit will help them stay fit and healthy.  

These urgent Solidarity Aid Packages will help them to cope. You can help spread happiness during this urgent time of crisis by donating now.
