As a consequence of the lockdown, the kitchen had to close & 200 refugees feared to be left hungry on the street. After hearing we couldn't let the them go to the supermarket to purchase coupons, we didn't know what to do... The team on the ground, however, made an amazing push! They're cooking at their homes, preparing sandwiches or uncooked food and the DELIVER! As such, not a day has gone by without something to eat.We're very proud to be working on this project with an amazing group of volunteers and beneficiaries!
