The COVID-19 pandemic has hit us all in way we never anticipated. In addition to the thousands of lives already lost due the virus, many individuals have lost their jobs, more and more families are seeing the life-savings disappearing. As a response to ease the impact the virus is having on families, We launched the Food Bank Drive for COVID-19 to support efforts by local food banks to help families and individuals put food on the table.
The response from the community to donate has been very positive and on Tuesday 19, May we handed all your donations to the local food bank at Christ The Kind in Beaumont Leys. Our appreciated to Councillor Ashiedu Joel and Hemant Bhatia who joined on this day to witness the handover of the donations to the local food bank.
This collection is in light with the African spirit of "Ubuntu, How can one of us be happy if all the others are not.
Ubuntu a Nguni Bantu term meaning “humanity”. It is often also translated as “humanity towards others”, but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
" Ubuntu " I am what I am because of who we all are" compassion, kindness,and humanity that connects us together by sharing ourselves with others and caring for others around us.
We are still collecting food donations to support a food bank charity in the County
We wish to use this opportunity to thank the community for the generosity, please if you can, continue to bring in your donations so we can continue to support our most vulnerable in our community.
