Dear Friends. The city of Helsinki has witnessed new kind of problems faced by those who are addicted to alcohol and/or drugs. Coronavirus has forced the social services to shut down the facilities that provide food and the possibility to wash oneself. The addicted and the homeless are hungry, which increases their substance abuse and overall poor health. Many of those living on the street need emergency aid which is harder and harder to find.
Quakers will gather donations for these people during Christmas, New Year and the beginning of the year 2021. The donations will go to the Salvation army. We will add fifty cents to every euro donated through us, the maximum limit of overall donations treated this way being 2000 euros.
You can give your donation to our bank account:
FI57 8020 0710 2249 98 (Danske Bank).
The message to attach to your donation: “Ruoka-apu” (food aid).
