Homeless on the increase
As lockdown eases and we all adjust to the new normal, it’s more important than ever to have a safe place to call home. But for so many, from the people stuck living in unsafe conditions putting their loved ones at risk to those with no choice but to sleep on the streets, that just isn’t reality.
Our team in the UK continue to work tirelessly to answer the increasing number of calls we’re receiving from people in need of our help. And they’ve seen it all – from children forced to live away from their parents due to their poor housing to people sleeping in tents and cars because there’s just nowhere else to go. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Join the fight against homelessness and help us be there for everyone who needs our help. Help us provide blankets and hot meals to the homeless from just £1.
Since the Covid-19 crisis started, Benefit Mankind have delivered over £40,000 worth of emergency food supplies and PPE kits, we were the first charity to setup an emergency helpline which witnessed thousands of calls during lockdown period, this was all provided with your generous support.
We will also be working closely with Cancer Specialist hospitals in England to help support patients, again your support will help us benefit many here locally when they need help the most. There are an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK, rising to 4 million by 2030 according to statistics.
