This year, the BDA Benevolent Fund has seen a three-fold increase in requests for help, a direct result of the challenges posed by COVID-19, and has been able to maintain the usual high level of assistance thanks to the dedication of the team and robust protocols. General Manager, Laura Hannon, commented, ‘We are here to help”.
With Christmas fast approaching, General Manager, Laura Hannon, recognises that the strain may increase for some, commenting, ‘We are here to help. Between now and the end of the year, we will be doing all we can to keep a roof over people’s heads, as well as fed, safe and warm.
‘We will also give people additional support so that they can feel a sense of normalcy, for example ensuring the children of beneficiaries do not miss out on a present, or that no-one spends Christmas Day alone because they cannot afford to travel to their family − if COVID-19 rules allow that.’
