The novel coronavirus has struck us all, yet all of us are affected differently. Our partner FutureCare notified us of the indirect effects of COVID-19 on the less fortunate in Sri Lanka and they are far from good.
Many of the primary schools we collaborated with have signaled that almost half of their students are facing famine. The lockdown makes it difficult to earn much needed income for families to purchase food. Malnutrition, at a young age, affects the development of the brain negatively.
Help us to help these communities survive the lockdown and the effects of COVID-19.
Below is how.
Help 158 children in a six-week sprint
This emergency campaign aims to provide relief to 158 primary school students over a period of 6 weeks. These are children from primary schools we have previously assisted through our Building a Future or Equal Chances projects.
Boost Foundation will kick-off by supplying two weeks worth of supplementary food and therewith, offer relief until their local government can respond.
How you can help
With just 3 Euros, you already reduce the effects of famine. That means that with 30 euros you already support 10 children for a week!
Much more is needed to help all of them, but together we think we can! Use any of the donation methods below to help us acquire the funding needed.
Donate directly to our ING account and reduce expenses paid to transaction fees. To make things easier, use our QR code or click on it!
The standard fee is set to 30 euros, but you can adjust that to whatever you like! ?
Alternatively, you can use our WhyDonate module. This platform takes a small percentage of the donation as a fee as opposed to a direct donation to our account.
Please note: You are not obliged to “Tip”, but helping them out is kind!
How we work
Our minimum target is to collect 2844 euros during a six-week sprint.
2. Food Logistics
The food packages are purchased locally in Sri Lanka. These are then to be sorted into packs.
Our local partner FutureCare will together with their volunteers will share the food packages with the ones in need.
