Health & Wellbeing

IMPACT

Our projects and activities contribute to fight against obesity, heart diseases and mental health. We are seeing vulnerable elderly break free from loneliness and isolation, now frequently engaging in community activities, developing new friendships, acquiring skills through volunteering and even taking active responsible roles in other community organisations.  In this challenging economic climate, families are being supported with not just food, but acquiring knowledge on managing household budgets at the same time as providing healthy menus for their families.  Several report improved fitness, loss of weight, and improved sense of well being with reduced visits to their GP’s.
