SAFM’S Bec, Cosi & Lehmo raise funds to provide 50,000 meals directly to India’s most vulnerable

SAFM’s Bec, Cosi & Lehmo are raising funds to provide 50,000 meals to those most vulnerable in India during the COVID-19 crisis.
Due to the devastating effects of COVID-19, India is experiencing lockdown restrictions, school closures, transportation difficulties, loss of work and record numbers of new COVID-19 infections each day. Exposing some of the least fortunate communities living in ‘slum’ conditions, millions are facing a lack of access to food.
Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello has previously orchestrated ‘Rice Runs’ in some of the world’s poorest areas, and he says the need has never been greater than right now for the people of India, “We have all been saddened and horrified at the scenes in India during this COVID outbreak. The ‘Indian Rice Run’ gives Aussies the chance to be able to help a family on the other side of the world.”
“Just by living in Australia we have won the lottery of life. So, I feel we need to use that position to lift up those who are less fortunate than us at home and around the world.”
Donations of $50 will help families in Uttarakhand where 1,000 children under 9 years old have had COVID-19 in the last 10 days. Commencing tomorrow via partner charity Project India, food supplies will be delivered including rice, dhal, flour, oil, salt, spices, vegetables and bananas – enough food to feed a family of six people for a month.
Those who donate can send a message of hope to the recipient family as well as see a photo of the family who receives the donation via the Bec, Cosi & Lehmo Facebook page.
Donations commence tomorrow from 6am with Bec, Cosi & Lehmo on 107.1 SAFM.
