The Coronavirus pandemic has claimed over 21,000 lives across the globe and left millions of people unwell and isolated. We are also facing the pandemic sweeping the UK, putting millions of vulnerable people at risk.
There are currently over 465,000 reported cases of COVID-19 across the globe
The most vulnerable people including the poor, elderly and refugees around the globe face major challenges in accessing nutritious food and vital medicine.
Hundreds have already lost their lives, and the most vulnerable are instructed to isolate for 3 months, making it very difficult for them to buy food and medicine.
There have been reported cases in 199 countries or territories around the world, with over 465,000 confirmed cases currently. This number is expected to rapidly rise in the near future.
Many countries around the globe are now going into Lockdown, restricting movement, rationing food and closing all non-essential shops and businesses. For the poor and most vulnerable across the globe, this means access to food is even more difficult than it was before. Millions of people have lost their jobs and sources of income, and the price hikes combined with strains on the markets have left countless people without the nutritious food they need.
There are currently over 795million people in the world who do not have enough food to eat. 1 in 12 people are clinically malnourished, which means they not only lack enough food, but do not receive enough of the right vitamins, minerals and calories.
SKT Welfare will be providing emergency food parcels to those most in need. Donate £50 today and make sure the most vulnerable communities are fed, healthy and strong during these testing times.
In Pakistan, 1 in 5 people are malnourished, and 60% are food insecure and do not know where their next meal is coming from. In times like these, they are made even more vulnerable and isolated, as food prices hiking, shops running low on stock and access to markets being reduced means they simply can’t get enough food. We’re providing food parcels full of nutritious food as well as supporting people with buying medicines so they can stay healthy and strong during these testing times.
Donate now to feed a family in need
In Syria and the Gaza strip, years of war and forced displacement has meant millions of people are living in over-populated refugee camps. Refugee camps like these are breeding places for virus and disease, and illness spreads very easily between people. They often lack clean water and basic hygiene facilities, as well as face huge challenges in receiving nutritious food.
Early reports reveal there are a few reported cases in both Syria and Gaza. The health infrastructure will be unable to cope with a mass spread, so at SKT welfare we are working to keep people as healthy as possible. Donate now so we can provide nutritious food, and ensure our Al Huda Hospital is well equipped to serve those in need.
The numbers of those infected in the UK is rising at a rapid rate, and tragically more and more people are dying each day. There are currently almost 10,000 reported cases in the UK and tragically almost 500 people have lost their lives.
Those most at risk are the people who are already vulnerable in our society including the elderly and those who have underlying health conditions. This pandemic will bring major challenges for the poor, those dependant on free school meals and the homeless.
Donate £25 to provide a vulnerable family with a food.
The government has advised all people above the age of 70 to stay isolated and avoid leaving their homes, because they’re particularly at risk from COVID-19.
This means millions of elderly people in our country will be lonely and isolated and will struggle with getting food. Many older people are unable to easily order food online and have nobody to tun to for support.
We’ll be giving vulnerable elderly people food packs with essential food items.
