Akwaaba Covid-19 Emergency Appeal

We urgently need to raise funds to support those within the Akwaaba community who will be directly impacted by the wider effects of this pandemic, and who will be struggling to meet their basic needs.

The money raised will be used to provide hardship funds for food and other essential living costs, as well as for communications technology, which is especially crucial in the current context. In particular, we want to ensure that those members of Akwaaba who are street homeless have phones, power banks and fast chargers and that all families with children have adequate devices and internet access/data so that the children can access learning resources and connect to their friends throughout the school closure period.

Sponsor our Migrant Support Fund

Our Migrant Support Fund allows refugee and migrant members who are living in financial hardship to attend our sessions, volunteer and participate in our activities. We support members with small cash grants which they use to cover their costs of travel, food and other daily essential costs. Most of the money for this comes from grant fundraising, which takes a long time and is very uncertain. This is why your support would make a huge difference to the sustainability of the travel scheme. If you do donate, please remember to also gift aid.

You can make a one-off donation or sponsor us on a monthly basis. £20 per month allows one Akwaaba volunteer to access the fund every week.
