1,000 food hampers have been delivered to families struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday the charitable gesture was done by the Khair Foundation supported by the Islamic Development Bank “COVID-19 Relief Project”.
The hampers were distributed mainly to some 25 Jamaahs throughout Trinidad for Muslims and non-Muslims.
This takes the total number of Jamaahs that received food hampers from this project to 50, including Tobago.
To date, 4,500 hampers have been provided to the public through this project. The project, according to its organiser Imtiaz Mohammed, aims to supply a total of 5,000 hampers.
"So we have a balance of 500 to supply," Mohammed said.
He said the second phase of this project will entail the free distribution of medication to the less fortunate.
"This medical distribution has been delayed due to the late supply of some of the medication. We will continue to update you on this matter," Mohammed said.
The project, valued at $1.6 million, was launched on December 10, 2020, with funding mainly from the Islamic Development Bank and it is expected to come to a close in March this year.
Anyone who needs medical assistance can contact Imtiaz Mohammed at 680-3460.
