COVID-19 Support by CIDs: Kew
The Kew Action Group (KAG) were approached by shack dwellers in the area for assistance. KAG put out a call to members for donations in order to supply food parcels to those who were unable to access government assistance.
Working with Gift of the Givers and JMPD, KAG has been able to deliver 700 food and hygiene parcels to residents verified by the Department of Social Development.
KAG and Gift of the Givers intend to deliver a further 800 parcels, but are still looking for donations.
