A cry for help! I feel helpless...The idea of a hungry child kills me, the suicide of a father haunts me. Can you help me fund food boxes for needy families around the world to all communities out of solidarity? Today in A crisis for many families who lost their jobs due to the corona virus we are experiencing a major economic crisis. People are protesting on the street ! The situation demands that we step up and work together in solidarity.

The Solidarity Box project started with a personal initiative to help out a friend who needed food boxes to distribute for the needy during this time of crisis. People reached out by sending food boxes to my house while others who live abroad sent money. This encouraged me to build a volunteering and crowdfunding platform to facilitate the transition to build a sustainable community to help those in need. I thank each and every one of you for your trust.

The money will be used exclusively to buy food to make food boxes that will be distributed to families all over the world. The distribution will be done with trusted local partners who are on the ground and have experience. We have reached out to many and took notes of their demands. Our job is to collect donations, purchase, pack and prepare boxes, then supervise their distribution.

The poor are getting poorer in world. Figures show that more than a million  live below the poverty line today... The numbers is increasing as businesses are closing and unemployment is rising. Fathers out of work, babies and toddlers without food. Mothers crying. The elderlies are desperate. It's horrific.

Every $25 feeds a family for a week.
