PLAY HANDBALL HELPS WITH STAY-FIT PACKAGES
How is the situation in the countries?
A lot of people have no financial reserves. In the areas where we work in with our sports & youth programs, the kids are dependent on daily meals at school. The parents are often day laborers or, as in Kenya, many children live with their grandparents, who have little financial means. Without the possibility to earn money, many families have nothing to eat and starve.
Why does Play Handball help?
Even if all sports activities are currently stopped and schools are closed, we do not want to stand by and watch. We at Play Handball would like to continue to support the children and young people in our partner programmes – instead of Handball & Education, we support them with Corona aid packages. And we ask you to get involved and help us.
What is a Corona aid package?
The aid packages consist of local food, hygiene products (incl. mask), corona information and fitness exercises. A package for a family of 4 people costs between 12.50 and 17.50 € per month.
How many aid packages are needed?
In South Africa there are about 300 families in eight partner communities. In Kenya we have 260 affected families, which we support with our partners in Juja, Kisumu and Machakos. Help us to overcome this difficult time together.
Donate to Play Handball Corona Help, share the campaign with friends, mobilize or even start your own fundraising campaign for us! Your help reaches the families directly and non-bureaucratically, without deductions, we guarantee it! We thank you for your support!
What has been achieved so far
We helped over 300 people until now: In South Africa, a porridge kitchen has been taking place in Lavender Hill for 3 weeks and 20 food support packages reached over 130 people in four communities in Cape Town. In Kenya 30 packages were delivered to families in Kisumu.
We have already been able to deliver the first 30 packages in Kisumu thanks to a private donation from our former volunteer Léon. Many thanks! With the support of OneTeam and Handball.Inspires 60 more packages will be distributed next week.
In Cape Town, we are currently helping with a porridge kitchen every morning so that up to 200 people, many of them children, get at least one warm meal a day. Chery, our local coordinator, is doing incredible work and at the same time educating people on how to protect themselves and others.
