Case study: Food in time of crisis
“With the support of the British public, our local aid workers on the ground will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that we can reach communities in the most isolated areas with vital emergency aid.” Christine Allen, CAFOD director.
Access to food after a disaster has always been essential. Now, when a disaster strikes on top of the coronavirus pandemic, emergency food support is even more crucial. For example, the recent explosions in Beirut damaged over half the city. Thousands of people were left homeless and unable to access even basic necessities. But thanks to CAFOD’s work with local experts – who were already on the ground – we were able to instantly support those made vulnerable, by cooking and distributing 2,300 hot meals on day one alone.
Access to food will always be a necessity in times of emergency. It is a genuine lifeline for those who have lost everything. This charity gift can give hope to families whose lives have been turned upside down – with homes destroyed, livelihoods lost and communities torn apart. It will mean we are ready to make a life-changing difference to a family in great need during an emergency.
