Isn’t crisis the right time for solidarity with people in need around us?
We believe that the current measures regarding COVID-19 will end in November and the shelters and other help centers will manage get through it. However, no additional support or measures have been put in place for the people living rough – in the streets. Many of them have lost their finance or basic possibilities of obtaining food. Often, their only support lies on the shoulders of the streetworkers. Therefore, we want to strenghten the streetwork programs of the largest social service providers – the Salvation Army and Naděje – by offering them quality and nutritious food for the people who are left outside in the state of emergency and in the coming winter.
By contributing, you will also support small businesses – cafes and bistros that have decided to prepare food. These local businesses will thus win a certain short-term contract, which also helps them to overcome the period without sales and income.
Together with local businesses, we will supply nutritious food to the streetwork programs of the organizations Naděje and Salvation Army Prague. For 175 € we will be able to cover the capacity of both streetwork teams for one day.
Businesses that, thanks to you, provide food for people without home:
Throughout the year, these local businesses offer free services to people in need. Now, despite their difficult situation, they have decided to help again. For the money raised in this call, they will prepare nutritious sandwiches and baguettes for people without home in Prague. You will support their work, you will support people in need. With one contribution. Thank you!
At the end of this call, we will send the remaining funds to the social enterprise Přestupní stanice, which will supply people in the streets with warm clothes before the coming winter. Because it is important not only to have a full belly, but also to stay warm!
