I am gathering donations for hygiene kits for homeless people and rough sleepers around London
I want to act fast, as there's many people still in the street with barely any access to facilities, and want to support them in going through the pandemic with dignity.
Help me with donations of key items, or donate through our fundraiser here: https://tinyurl.com/yaaqdvas or to safe the GoFundMe Fees of almost 4% transfer into the specifically set up Monzo Account: Claudia Stachelhaus, 07959863, 04-00-04
🔍The situation ⛺
- Although the government ordered the councils to help homeless people get off the streets and house them in hotels, the reality is that there are still many homeless people in the streets who are exposed to the virus.
- Many drop-in centres, public toilets, cafes and shops with facilities have closed. The people on the street are struggling to get access to showers, toilets, or even drinking water.
