Urgent help needed for north London Hostel

Urgent help needed for some families based in a family based hostel in north London!

Walking along a famous street in North London where buildings are valued at millions of pounds, there is a building that often goes unnoticed where there are large family’s cramped in a hostel, who are in desperate need of support during this unprecedented time.

This family hostel Has small cramped rooms with no washing machines, no internet and no ovens it is far from temporary and far from being suitable for families as you have some families who have been living at the hostel for up to 10 years many are single mums fleeing domestic violence, mental illnesses, human trafficking and immigration issues.

The struggles that some of these families have seen and are trying to overcome to see a brighter future is being dulled by the lack of support provided. This is where every penny donated will give a ray of hope to those who are in desperate need. Real lives, real families who have been forgotten and cut off from the outside world with very little support or no support in place.

Some parents of dependants are looking for help in any way possible to provide the best upbringing for the children, in some cases ones that they were unable to have themselves. Let us work together to make not only the parents but the children’s future a brighter place. The families here have already been deprived of many privileges that most normal families take for granted on a day to day basis. Don’t let covid -19 add to their worries.

This is a closed hostel where they are not allowed any outside visitors which makes getting support very hard. In current situations local supermarkets are empty. Some familys have to live off £35 a week which means they cannot even afford transport.

I have been helping families at this family based hostel for 2 years from providing hot meals, organising activities making connections with local community and local charity’s to support families.

Today I’m reaching out to all you guys for support to allow me to continue to help some desperate families at this family based hostel. The hostel is based in one of the richest borough’s in London and I’m hoping everyone can come together and as a community and as a country to show humanity and support to theses family’s in desperate need I am trying to raise £10,000 to allow me to support some of the families at the hostel during the time of covid-19.

The money raised will help:

provide care packages for the selected family’s and essentials to support these families

allow me to be able to continue to cook for theses selected family’s during the crisis

help rebuild their lives as a lot of family’s are already under a lot of pressure not knowing where they are going to be moved to as the building has been sold and some families have already been sent as far as Luton, Birmingham with no local connections or family there for support.

Help me, help those, who need the funding the most.
