Due to the economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, the poorest families in our project areas are struggling to meet their basic food needs. People such as rickshaw drivers, roadside vendors and day labourers typically live hand-to-mouth and their livelihoods are being decimated by the lockdowns.

IMPACTs in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Zanzibar have already distributed food parcels to over 1,000 vulnerable families – keeping hunger at bay and ensuring they have the resources to stay safely at home, which ultimately protects the health of us all.

More funds for this work are urgently needed.

£25 feeds a family for a month (an emgergency food parcel includes rice, potatoes, lentils, oil and onions – as well as soap to prevent the spread of the virus)
