As part of the Syria, Turkey and Lebanon food fundraising appeal that Edinburgh Cares are running…..this struck me…
Its costs them £1.43 to feed a family of a 4 for a day.
That is £10.01 to feed a family of 4 for a week.
That is £20.02 to feed a family of 4 for 2 weeks.
This what a 2 week food basket for a family of 4 contains the following packed in portions to last for 2 weeks. Rice (1kg) , Bulgur (1kg) ,Red lentil 1kg) , Green lentil (1kg) , Ghee (1kg) , Tea 450g , Sugar (1kg), Sunflower oil 1LT , Tuna 80g , and Halva 40g
Cash for clothes pay 40p per kilo of clothes. so think oh this…
Cashing in 3.5kg of old clothes &b shoes would feed a family of 4 for a day
Cashing in 25kg of old clothes & shoes would feed a family of 4 for a week
LETS ALL CASH FOR CLOTHES ALL OUR OLD TSHIRTS/ SHIRTS/DRESSES/ SUMMER SKIRTS AND SHOES AND TURN IT INTO FOOD!!
Donate with reference “EC Food Aid” to us and we will send one lump sum over to their campaign. This will be used by the team to buy direct whilst they are in Lebanon and Turkey and transported on into Syria.
