We urgently need your help to support our response to the COVID – 19 pandemic.
Please give what you can today.
Learning for Life is working urgently with our partners in Bangladesh and Nepal to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. LfL works with children and girls in some of the most deprived and rural areas to ensure that they receive an education.
The schools have shut to prevent the spread of the virus, but we want to ensure that the children are healthy and well and able to return as soon as they can.
The children live in remote villages. LfL’s partners are working hard to stop the spread of the virus by providing vital education in hand-washing to prevent infection and providing families with essential hygiene packs of buckets, soap, disinfectant, masks and handkerchiefs.
For families who have lost their income, LfL’s partners are distributing food packs which contain rice, pulses, oil, potato, salt and flour.
A food pack which contains enough to feed a family of five people for 30 days costs £22.
A hygiene pack which will help to keep a family of five safe from COVID-19 for 30 days costs £12.
Together both of these packs will help to support vulnerable families.
Many of the fundraising events – like the London Marathon – that support LfL have been postponed.
Please support our work by donating to our Coronavirus Emergency Appeal and help LfL to continue to protect children, young girls and their families from this virus.
