On Monday 30 July, a son and his 87-year old mum came to Let's Feed Brum, a soup kitchen that runs in central Birmingham six nights a week. Darius and his mum, Irena, had been made homeless on the Sunday and had to sleep rough, and they came to Let's Feed Brum to get some food to last the night. 

We are fundraising to help them get back on their feet. Let's Feed Brum has put them into a hotel for a few nights whilst we try and put them in touch with the right people to get them something more secure. After an article by Birmingham Mail, we have been asked to set up a page so that people can donate directly to Darius and Irena to help them.

Hi everyone,

A massive thank you to each and every one of you who has donated, sent messages of support, provided great advice, and helped spread the reach of this fundraising campaign.

Darius and Irena will now be flying back to Lithuania this Sunday 5 August, to be with their family who will help support them going forwards.

Every penny raised through this Go Fund Me page is going towards helping them. The travel arrangements to the airport and flights have been covered by this fundraiser, and the remaining balance given to them to help get them started when they land back in Lithuania. Thank you to everyone - your support has been fantastic and you've made such a difference to them.

This is just one example of the work of Let's Feed Brum; we're run entirely by volunteers and would love any future support that you can give us; whether that be time, money or essential supplies for those on the streets. You can get in touch with us at info@letsfeedbrum.com and donate to us on our website: www.letsfeedbrum.com.

From Tara, Raj and the Let's Feed Brum team x

Update on Darius and Irena...

We have been overwhelmed by the support from everyone, in Birmingham and beyond! We've had the authorities out to see them, including housing and benefit experts, but we've had a new development in the form of their family members over in Lithuania who made contact after seeing some of the press coverage (Metro, Mirror, MSN and Lad Bible). We are now helping Darius and Irena return to Lithuania to be with family and this money will pay for their flights (flying from Luton this Sunday) and money to get them started when they arrive.

Speaking to Go Fund Me, due to logistical reasons, they've advised that we need to withdraw the money personally and then pass it on to Darius and Irena, as they don't have their account to receive the funds. So this money will be withdrawn and every penny will go towards their return journey; the travel will paid for from this and the rest will be given to them in cash.

Thank you to everyone who has helped so far! You've made such a difference!

Tara and the Let's Feed Brum team x
