The £1000 grant money from our Club and local District 1120 received at the end of last month is already being put to excellent use.

The Sunshine Centre, schools, hotels and tourism all remain closed. The resulting impact, particularly on the poorest people, has been huge.

Last month Footsteps International supplied emergency food and hygiene packs to 200 families, a total of just over 1,100 beneficiaries. As well as providing much needed practical help, it reassured people that they had not been forgotten at this difficult time.

Each food parcel has a certificate acknowledging Rotary’s contribution

This was very successful and achieved safely, (you may have seen news items in other countries where delivering food particularly to those who very little has caused riots)

Last week, the team started to procure and pack the food and hygiene materials for the next wave of aid which they intend to start distributing to families this week.
