Fundraising for the purchase and delivery of packages with essential foods, personal hygiene and masks for the vulnerable families in dire need
in Tajikistan during the COVID-19 pandemic
Charity campaign to fight COVID-19 in Tajikistan started on 5th of May at 14:00 and should collect 2 million TJS.
All funds raised will be DOUBLED!
You can buy a two week food supply for just 10 GBP (12 USD) donation for a family in need in Tajikistan affected by the rapid spread of Covid-19 and pneumonia.
The Republic of Tajikistan is a 10 million nation in Central Asia with an Average Household income per capita of 1 GBP (1.2 USD) per day.
A lot of families depend on remittance from migrants working in Russia, which is stopped now and most likely will be heavily hit due to the upcoming economic downturn there.
On the 29th of April, Tajikistan officially announced that it has COVID-19 cases. At the moment the number of cases cannot be estimated reliably.
Whom do we want to help?
The goal of this campaign is to help vulnerable families without sources of income and food, lonely elderly who do not have relatives, and families of medical personnel.
How do we help?
We are discussing a partnership with several food delivery services to compile a Meal Box with essentials
(10kg of flour, 2 packs of pasta, 3 kg of cooking oil, 10 face masks, 4 packs of soap), each box would cost 10 GBP(12 USD) including delivery.
