Help us to help families in need!
Since February 1998, we are cooking and delivering 200 meals per day for families in need in their homes. KEPA has become a bastion of community support in our area, delivering free meals every day as well as providing a clothing bank, and a food bank. KEPA Charity is a safe refuge for those in need as well as a place for the community and friends to gather. We are based in Paralimni CYPRUS, next to famous destinations of Ayia Napa and Protaras!
During the Covid-19 period we delivered food ourselves to the homes of people in need. So we visited families in the villages of our area. We also helped families in Nicosia and Larnaca area by sending them supermarket vouchers.
There is a great problem in our area which most of the people are depended on the tourism industry (direct or indirect) and we have many families that receive our help.
If the covid-19 returns and people have to stay at their home, we will go again to their homes to deliver for them all the essential package of food.
Moreover during the covid-19 period we were cooking meals for the doctors and nurses that they were working in the Hospital of Famagusta which is situated in Paralimni. The hospital of Famagusta was the hospital that they were transfered all the covid-19 victims from all over Cyprus. So extra nurses and doctors came to help at our hospital. We arranged to cook and deliver for them hot home-made food at the places they were living. We will continue to help these people and your help is vital for us!
Each meal costs €2. All donations are allocated for the cost of the ingredients and plastic containers. The food is prepared in our kitchen daily. We try to make as healthy meals for families with children and also seniors that leave alone. The children and the elderly will help them to stop eating cheap and unhealthy things like sugary yogurts and puddings or packet soups. We are providing them also with fresh vegetables and fruits that we receive from the fields of the local producers. At the same time we provide fresh milk, bread, butter and marmalade from our food bank.
The more funds we raise, the more we can help fight hunger in this time of crisis.
