Our campaign 'food-parcel' is still alive and kicking.
In March 2020, Stichting Corantijn started a campaign to distribute food parcels, filled with basic food items for 14 days, to the elderly and families. Unfortunately this campaign is still necessary.
Prices of basic food items have risen immensely, people have a hard life.
The one’s who receive a parcel have very little themselves, sometimes a small income but that is in general not enough to last until the end of the month. We often hear stories of parents who refrain from eating so as to feed their children. But still children go to school without having eaten and in the evening there is sometimes also no food available.
The campaign is meant for those families. That’s why we will continue this.
