Responding to the pandemic
Hackney is a vibrant place with diverse communities and exciting innovation but where many residents live in poverty, isolation and poor health.
The Covid-19 crisis has highlighted these entrenched health and social inequalities; black and ethnic minority communities, disabled people, the elderly, and those living on low incomes have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
In March 2020 we quickly repurposed Hackney Giving to respond to the crisis. Since then we have been raising funds to channel to local voluntary and community organisations as they care for our residents. Our extensive local knowledge and understanding of grassroots community groups in Hackney puts us in a unique position to be able to help.
I am extending my endless thanks, you have saved my life and I am sure you will do so for other Filipinos who need help in their most critical times.
