People living in poverty are preoccupied with meeting their basic needs – often to the detriment of other priorities. These are people who work labour-intensive and menial jobs to eke out a living for them and their loved ones.
Through our programs, you provide relief to those who don’t know where their next meal will come from; you allow the poorest an opportunity to focus on other things that affect their wellbeing and future.
