The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected the already vulnerable homeless individuals. With many public areas being cordoned off, some of them no longer have temporary places of refuge; many have struggled to find places to sleep, rest and consume meals. The economic fallout from the pandemic has also exacerbated the plight of the homeless, some of whom have lost jobs and are left without the means or resources to care for themselves.
We ask for your assistance in helping us to provide safe shelter for the homeless during this COVID-19 period, especially with the heightened alert now in place.
With your kind donations, we can do the following:
1. Cleaning of shelters
2. Repair or replace amenities eg. blankets, mattresses etc
3. Purchase hygiene products, eg. washing powder, shampoo, body wash, disinfectant etc
4. Provide a hot meal daily alongside supplements of dry food and beverages
5. Special gifts and celebrations on festive occasions, eg, festive meals, care packs, clothing etc
Hope Initiative Alliance's above response plan will evolve based on the rapid changing COVID-19 situation. We thank you in advance for your kind support during this time of need. A small donation will go a long way to make a huge impact in the lives of the homeless.
