Timeline

April - May 2020

HOPE Worldwide started this initiative to help New Zealanders by providing Food Parcels at their doorsteps through Community Awareness and Preparedness Grant Fund (CAPGF).


Aim of this project is to protect and support New Zealanders while staying safe at homes during COVID-19. Our initiative helped communities by receiving food parcels and also contributed in promoting the social distancing and slowing the spread.


HOPE's team of volunteers designed Survival Package and planned to provide / deliver Food Parcels during COVID-19 lockdown. This has contributed in many ways and helped our wider community/ recipients families. This has also contributed in minimizing the risk of transmitting COVID-19. Food Parcels has enhanced emotional wellbeing of families and they felt more empowered, supported and secured of having enough food.
