Emergency Lockdown Food Relief

Why we need your help

Shishukunj Emergency Appeal for Lockdown Food Relief

As the lockdown restrictions continue all over the world, the need for food relief is now greater than ever in some of the poorest communities in India, Kenya & Uganda.

With no means of income, many of the daily wage and migrant workers are suffering greatly and need our support to get through this difficult period. 


With your support

We can provide emergency food relief in the poorest communities in India, Kenya & Uganda. 

We now need your suppport to raise £20,000 so that we can provide 160,000 much needed meals to the most vulnerable families who are now at real risk of hunger and starvation. 

The ares identified for this support are the familiies of daily or very low wage earners, street children, migrant workers, people living in slums, orphanages and vulnerable school children and their families.  


What will your support provide?

With your kind donations, we can provide the following meal kits to help families get through this period:

  • In India £22 will feed a family of 4 for a month, providing them with wheat/millet, rice and dals, with some sugar, tea, oil, spices and soap. Areas of need: Jamnager, Karjali-Rajasthan, Bhuj, Dharampur, Bagvadar, Ansodar, Bangalore, Nilpar and Pune.
  • In Kenya and Uganda, £34 will feed a family of 4 for a month, providing them with maize (ugali) flour, rice,  beans or vegetables, sugar and cooking oil. Areas of need Limuru, Kenya and Jinja, Uganda. 

Through our existing networks and volunteers on the ground in these countries, we are working to identify the families most in need and deliver the aid in a safe and socially distanced way. 

Please view our uploaded short video, that highlights the help we have already provided and how we hope to continue our support: https://youtu.be/nSDHRV7rZz8

For less than the cost of an average UK family takeaway, you can help provide food for a family in one of these communities for a whole month. Please contribute what you can, and please share this message. 

Thank you very much for your support and together we will make a difference to those who need it the most in this very difficult time.
