Last Saturday, 25th April Migrant Action was in the community (Leeds and Bradford) responding to the emergency needs of vulnerable and destitute migrants/families.
Working in accordance to social distancing guidelines, we handed food parcels and vouchers but more importantly, our physical presence conveyed our #solidarity and #commitment to support vulnerable migrants in need.
The Lockdown measures continue to disproportionately impact the most disadvantaged groups in society- this includes migrant families, who have no recourse to public funds.
📣 Migrant Action would like to pay particular thanks to the Paul Hamlyn Foundation for their ongoing support, which enables us to continue to respond to the needs of vulnerable migrants and work towards offsetting the social and economic inequalities made worse by the effects of the pandemic.
🗣⚠️ Migrant Action welcomes any donations of dried and long-life products, so that it can continue to support vulnerable persons during this time- drop-off will be arranged in a ‘socially-distanced’ manner.
🗣⚠️ Alternatively, if you know of anyone who may benefit from such support, please get in touch via the Facebook messenger feature or email firstname.lastname@example.org
