Peace of Mind - Covid19 Emergency Food Parcels

Yes, The lockdown has eased-However, the struggles of asylum seekers to survive on £37.75 stays the same - PLEASE help us to help asylum seekers and refugees in our region. Many, many people are being severely challenged at this time but the families and individuals we are trying to support are among the most vulnerable. They are already surviving on very limited budgets and can not afford to fulfil their basic needs using the limited money they receive. During this pandemic- Some local shops, where many of our beneficiaries are living, have even put their prices up. Asylum seekers receive only £37.75 per week on which to live and the government has not announced any extra assistance/recourse to public funds for them in the way that they have for many on benefits at this time. With no money for transport, asylum seekers can not afford to shop further than their feet will take them and for many, leaving their accommodation at all, is not an option due to current restrictions. We, at Peace of Mind, are doing our very best to help those most in need but we have been inundated with referrals from other charities who are no longer in a position to offer practical assistance themselves, in addition to those known to us already. We are a small organisation with only very limited resources and are urgently seeking help in the form of donations of food and toiletries or financial donations with which we can purchase culturally appropriate supplies ourselves and distribute them to those most in need. Please do get in touch with us if you feel able to help in any way. We remain hugely grateful for any donations, however small. Your generous donation will enable us to provide practical and emotional support to our families and children in their hardship. Can you Survive on £37.75 per week?
