Charities feel strain

Share post:

SOME LOCAL CHARITIES are under severe pressure given the demands being made of them.

This is all  because of the ever increasing requests for assistance from families who can no longer cope in the prolonged current economic climate.

At least three major charities are reporting “more and more families” knocking on their doors for help.

The charities, as part of their responses in turn, are appealing to the wider community to chip in.

“The need increases and it hasn’t stopped increasing,” Donnah Russell, head of Variety the Children’s Charity told the Saturday Sun. This charity replaced the Aunty Olga Needy Children’s Fund started by the late Dame Olga Lopes-Seale and Russell said children continued to be added to the list.

Please read the full story in today’s Saturday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
