The Serge Ibaka Foundation is starting a Covid 19 relief program in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. The program is focused on lightening up the food insecurity issues caused by the pandemic’s economic impact in Congo.
The Foundation, with the help of the Fondation Burotop, has sourced and organized 80 tons of food products to be distributed to 8.000 families in Brazzaville. The packages contain rice, sugar, milk, oil, pasta, canned food, and other products.
The first distribution phase will take place in the Ouenzé Neighbourhood before moving to other areas of the city.
“The impact that the coronavirus has had in my country is big. Although infections might have not been as high as expected, the economic consequences have put the population in a difficult position, and the Foundation exists to take action to help them. We decided to focus on food insecurity as it’s the most basic first need and many people are having difficulties to feed their families”, commented Serge Ibaka.
The Serge Ibaka Foundation would like to thank Diana Attye and the Fondation Burotop for their involvement and support in sourcing, organizing, and distributing the products.
