United Synagogue Chesed Fund - Asylum seekers
The United Synagogue run two Drop-in Centre's for Asylum Seekers. Across both Centres we help 130 adults and 200 children. These families have had to leave their countries for fear of their lives, often bringing with them only what they could carry. As Asylum Seekers they have to survive on just £37 a week and are not allowed to work. The Drop-in Centres provide these families with hot meals, £15 worth of food vouchers, clothing & toiletries, kids activities as well as offering befriending and mentoring services. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we and many other help centres have had to temporarily close and therefore our guests are having to make their little money stretch much further. Despite the building being closed we are still actively trying to help our guests. We will be making personalised family packs of toiletries. Simply click on what you would like to donate and all purchases will be automatically sent to our remote hub and then onto the families who desperately need them. Please donate what you can.
