Harvest a great big Thank you.
Because of your generosity, 26 large bags full of various items were donated to Hertford and ware Foodbank. Thank you.
If you weren’t able to support but still wanted to do something for Harvest, the PCC, has also made a donation to support Charlotte Boulton and this aspect of the The Dust Project and Paalam Project. The areas the food parcels were given were Kelaniya and (Mahara) Kadawatha. These places have been identified by the local MoH (Ministry of Health) with a huge need for aid for pregnant women. Previously, the Health departments provided packs of Triposha and additional supplements for women when visiting the clinic for their monthly check-ups, but due to the economic crisis this had to be stopped - many women are now more vulnerable to being undernourished, having underdeveloped babies and experiencing difficult pregnancies/births.
If you would like to join in you can www.thedustproject.com or via PayPal - https://www.paypal.com/donate/?campaign_id=SNTSNR4DCXFRW?
Each food pack costs £25 - 10,000 Rps and provides enough nutritious food for a pregnant lady & family for 1 month.
The packs contain: 200g jaggery, 1kg white sugar, 1kg chickpeas, 10kg rice, 1kg dhal, 400g tea leaves, 200g dry fish (nethili), Cream crackers, 1kg potatoes, 1kg onions, 500g spring onions, 200g dry soya meat, Noodles, 1kg plain flour, 1kg string hopper flour, 200g Yahaposha, 200g garlic, Panadol, 1kg salt, 1kg margarine, 100g chilli flakes, Vim cleaner, Sliced bread loaf, 1L UHT milk, Body wash soap bars, 1kg washing powder.
