Food distribution during times of COVID

Remar Portugal.

We continue with the Remar SOS project to support people in vulnerable situations in times of pandemic.

 

The volunteers of Remar distribute food and basic necessities in several cities, with the collaboration of the association Partilha Constante.

 

Anyone can be part of this project; you can collaborate with food and help for those who need it most.

 

From December 2020 to March 2021, Portugal suffered severely from coronavirus, with difficult months and many people affected by the economic situation, losing there employment.

 

Remar Ivory Coast.

Remar SOS in Ivory Coast as part of strategy to support the population in times of emergency, due to the situation being experienced due to the COVID pandemic.

 

The aid reaches the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of the capital, Abdijan, where hundreds of menus and sacks of food are distributed daily to people living in the most vulnerable areas. Long lines of people form to collect food, hundreds of children, young people and entire families come to seek help in the midst of so much need.

 

The volunteers and missionaries of Remar distribute food remembering the words of Jesus, when he saw the multitudes, he had compassion and said: They have no need to go away; give them something to eat.

 

In many cases, the food that the families receive from the volunteers is the only food they will have that day. The coronavirus pandemic has created havoc. Mandatory confinements to try to curb the impact of the virus have also had the consequence of increasing poverty, as many people earn their living by selling products in the markets and on the street.
