Henson Crisp – Charities still need support

As the UK enters a further agreed three weeks of isolation as a result of the COVID19 pandemic, it is not only businesses that are experiencing the impact of the global economic situation. Charities worldwide are finding times increasingly difficult too.

With global financial markets fluctuating, working to find their new positions in the coronavirus changed world, it is well reported that a number of charities both nationwide and worldwide have seen falls in financial commitments and are in desperate need of support. In the current global situation, most charities are finding more people are needing to access their various activities or facilities, and funding their programmes have never been more paramount. It is important to remember that many charities bring key lifeline resources to individuals and communities, often filling the gaps where governments or private organisations offer no provisions or cover.

It is at times like this that charities not only need funding to keep their normal activities running, but also need to find additional resources in order to offer extra support to those most in need.

Henson Crisp, continues to support nominated charities

Henson Crisp supports a number of charities, both in the UK and overseas. In particular we have offered continued support during this time to our charity in Honduras, caring for children and families in need of basic supplies. Additionally, we have continued our commitments to supporting The Purfleet Trust, and Macmillan Cancer Support. This is support that we have given for many years and our commitment is to continue in every way we can.

Last week we received an update regarding our last funding sent to Honduras. It serves as a reminder that for many across the globe access to healthcare is limited and the systems in place are fragile. These healthcare systems are in no place to cope with the challenges and scale of requirements the COVID19 pandemic brings to them.

However, at this most difficult time, the gratitude expressed by the families of Honduras in receipt of aid and the thanks expressed by those working for the charity itself is exceptional.

Honduras children receive the food they need

We are pleased to share news that in late March food aid was arriving in Honduras for mothers with infants and young children. Fruit trees were being donated to enable families to grow their own crops. And despite corruption, aid was passing through to those who needed it the most. COVID19 measures were in place, with lock down in Honduras set to continue into mid to late April.
