Hope Amidst Covid 2021
Why we need your help
We were very much hoping to be moving on from Covid-19 response fundraising in 2021 but sadly the need is still very much there. Numbers of infections are increasing daily and with an already fragile healthcare system, we need to do everything in our power to ensure our families don't get sick.
Whilst we continue to deliver our day-to-day programme where possible, it is necessary for us to respond over and above that in the following ways;
LEARNING RESOURCES FOR REMOTE LEARNING
Education is essential for breaking cycles of poverty, and yet the children we support would not be able to afford to go to school without our intervention. It is important that they do not fall behind while schools are closed. Our Lead teacher has been working hard to produce learning materials the children can work on at home and we want to print and distribute these for the duration lockdown measures are in place.
£30 pays for a home study pack for two children.
£15 pays for internet access per month for a University Student to study online.
FOODPACKS FOR FAMILIES WITH NO INCOME
Food packs including one month's essentials (maize meal, soya chunks, rice, cooking oil, beans, salt, flour, matches, dried fish and peanut butter) are being distributed to each family in need. For our most vulnerable, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions we are supplying them with Epap – a nutritious porridge full with vitamins and minerals to boost their immune systems.
Each pack costs £40 and will feed a family for one month. £10 ensures a person with underlying health conditions receives a month’s supply of Epap.
PPE & AIRTIME FOR FRONTLINE STAFF
PPE has become very expensive in Zimbabwe. However, without regular check ins and deliveries from our staff, families will not get the supplies they urgently need. Mobile is the only way of keeping in touch with our families and without the availability of mobile contracts, airtime (or credit) needs to be purchased regularly.
£250 enables us to provide PPE and airtime for all of our frontline staff for one month.
Starting another year not knowing if we will be able to run any fundraising events again is daunting. Please do support us through this appeal, if you are able. Thank you.
