Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Kongolese elderly people are isolated, with compromised immune systems are worried about going to the shops to buy food.
Many of them are watching their livelihoods collapse and already start struggling with their daily life, they could go hungry and also lots of them may lose their jobs or be facing serious financial difficulties and also experiencing health problems such as diabetic or compromised immune systems and are even more anxious about their future.
This is where we come in; we are going back to our roots, of caring, delivering fresh and cooked food for them.
Right now both the future of the Kongolese elderly people in Westminster, and the health of our most vulnerable community members is in jeopardy due to the COVID-19 situation crisis.
From our Voluntary Crisis Team, where there are about 25 community members, our team is made of Chef, Nurses, Drivers, Retail Sellers, Students and Housewives will purchase, cook and deliver nutritious foods and fruits to 85 – 90 Kongolese vulnerable elderly people 2 days a week.
We have updated our Safeguarding Policy with a Covid-19 Annexe.
