This could have arisen from situations such as loss of a partner, loss of a job or unexpected expenses. We support families for 1-3 months to help get them back on their feet.
Our support package includes a weekly grocery delivery of fruit, vegetables, meat, tinned food and cleaning supplies. We also help with the job-hunting process, having a WhatsApp group with local opportunities and help with CVs.
We look at a holistic approach with the motto of A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT. We will also refer to other agencies, such as counselling and financial advisory services if needed. We visit the families at least once a week and befriend them to offer emotional support also through the tough time.
