COVD-19 Response and Al-Noor Community Foodbank – Zanzibar Welfare Association

Country flag

Zanzibar Welfare Association, a diaspora group in the UK, has raised funds and delivered medical equipment to Tanzania to support health workers dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak in Zanzibar. To date they have purchased and delivered hundreds of face shields, goggles, boxes of surgical gloves, and face masks to Zanzibar.
To respond to the crisis in the UK, a team of ZAWA volunteers on the deprived Gascoigne Estate in Barking, London, also launched the Al Noor Cultural & Educational Trust Food Bank to support local people. The food bank is based on the estate, which sits in one of the UK’s most poverty-stricken wards, and the volunteers deliver food-packs to local homes once a week.
