We have awarded a grant to the Gibraltar Care Agency’s ‘Meals on Wheels’ initiative. During the coronavirus enforced lockdown, the scheme has provided one hot meal a day to those aged 70-years and over who are unable to cook for themselves, either because they have no support from family or because they live alone. Our grant of just over £9,200 will cover the cost of preparing and delivering one meal a day to seventy-two individuals over four-weeks during the lockdown period.
April Smart-Devicenzi from the Care Agency said: “the generous donation provided by the Kusuma Trust has enabled the Care Agency to provide nutritious hot meals to those vulnerable isolated members of our community not capable to provide this for themselves. The provision of this will ensure the overall health as well as providing a well-being check and a friendly smile upon each and every delivery as this might be the only people they see that day. This grant provides peace of mind all round.”
