Help Farmer Amanda Fight Hunger in Trinidad & Tobago

Update posted by Sarah Dixon On Jun 29, 2020

Thanks again for your generous support in this brief campaign.

We have an update today from Amanda working hard in Trinidad that I thought you would like to hear:

" 5 more hampers ready for delivery today in addition to 5 more hampers organized for Tobago!

This was only possible thanks to my lovely school mate Sarah Dixon who so generously organized a gogetfunding campaign in the UK into which several of my Roedean School alum have contributed.

Additionally our Gogetfunding Campaign has covered the completion of 17 hampers which required 6 items each 2 weeks ago.

We are still getting requests for food support on an ongoing basis...

Yesterday we had emergency work in the yard with the high winds we needed to trim some trees.

On Friday we delivered 12 hampers, 2 in Central 10 for Natasha Lee to distribute Couva/ California area etc, 7 over the past week in Santa Cruz and Port of Spain...

Thanks to my beautiful friend Allie Gee and her donors who have also organized funds to cover 20 hampers delivered throughout this past 12 days with only one designated for Tobago scheduled now...

Total to date 406 hampers delivered plus 75 by Rosanna..."
