COVID-19 Appeal

As Covid-19 continues to affect the UK, there are thousands of vulnerable people across the country who will struggle to make it through this distressing period.

With this project, ILM UK aims to provide multiple services such as; food packs, prescription deliveries, hygiene packs, support lines and much more!

Show compassion during this period by sparing a small amount of money to help those who may already be living in poverty!

This crisis has left many elderly people unable to leave their home as the government has advised those over 70 years of age to stay isolated. Because of this, older people may be left unable to get hold of food as they may not know how to order it online or simply cannot afford it. With this project we will be dropping off food packs to these individuals to ensure that they have access to this simple human right.

Within the UK, there are many people working zero-hour contracts and living in poverty. We will be providing these individuals necessities including food and hygiene products. It is extremely important to look out for our community during this time as COVID-19 could leave many individuals living in dire conditions.

We also aim to distribute hygiene packs to the elderly and the homeless because these groups are vulnerable during this period. Products such as hand-sanitizer and hand wash have become impossible for the elderly to get hold of in the local supermarket and homeless individuals are unable to self-isolate. As a result, it is important that they are  provided with items that will help keep them safe. 

During this period, we will also be launching a support line which will allow elderly people to receive help without leaving their home or even just have someone to talk to.

How you can help:

You can come together with ILM UK and our partners to support elderly and vulnerable people.

A small donation will help us provide more hygiene packs, food packs and support for everyone.

Please also continue to check on your elderly neighbours, do what you can to support your community. We are always asking for volunteers if you have spare time.

Thank you!
