Destitution

destitution_header_two.jpg

We see growing numbers of destitute clients in Coventry coming to us for help because they have no one else to turn to. We are only able to give help because of money kindly donated by individuals and community groups. Please help. All donations go to The Hope Fund - Coventry which gives practical help to people suffering extreme hardship.

  • Food, toiletries and neccessities
  • Clothes, nappies, toys etc for children
  • Night shelter, travel & subsistence payments (e.g. for travel to UKBA Croydon/Liverpool)

As well as emergency and ad-hoc subsistence support to destitute people, each month we buy and distribute over 50 food parcels to individuals and families who have no money and nothing to eat.

Please support The Hope Fund - Coventry:
