COVID-19 Care Inititiave

Help Feed Families who are Struggling due to COVID-19

 
Dear Grenadians and Friends of Grenada,

 Our people have always risen to the occasion, standing together as one people, and one family to support one another and share resources with the most vulnerable among us. As Grenadians at home contend with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures to thwart its negative impact, some individuals and families are struggling to get by because of the stay-at-home order, sudden losses of income, sharp decline in remittances from abroad, and rising cost of living. Many are turning to support centers for assistance. These centers are seeing demand for food supplies double or even triple as the economic fallout from the pandemic takes its toll. 
 

In response to the emerging crisis, the NDC launched the COVID-19 CARE Initiative to proactively mobilize food supplies to support our brothers and sisters in need. In the first phase of this project, the team distributed over 1,000 food hampers to vulnerable individuals and families across Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Each hamper contains approximately 7–10 days’ worth of food supply. However, we cannot do this alone. We need your help in order to continue serving hundreds of families who need our support.

 
The Grenada COVID-19 Care Fund was established to enable the CARE team to bring as much relief and support as possible to the people impacted by COVID-19. Our goal is to raise US$100,000 over the next six months. In the Diaspora, donations can be made to this GoFundme account. In Grenada, donations can be made to Republic Bank account no. 92009790. A donation of US$20 can provide a family with a food hamper that contains enough supplies for one week. All funds raised will be disbursed quickly to ensure that food hampers get to those in need in a timely and effective manner.

 
Please help us by making a donation to those in need. No donation is too small or too large. Your donation makes a difference between an individual or family going to bed hungry or eating a nutritious meal. Your generous donation is also one practical way to answer the call for solidarity, compassion, love, and hope in a time of fear and uncertainty. 

 
Thank you in advance for answering the call to help those in need during this pandemic. We will emerge stronger by joining our “heads, hearts, and hands in unity”, and working together!
 

Meanwhile, we extend positive thoughts to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

 
Love and blessings to you!
