Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) Provides Food Baskets that Supply 825,000 Meals to Refugees in Ten Cities, Nine States
SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, May 3, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Every year, Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) supports refugees in the U.S. through the distribution of food baskets. According to UNHCR, at the end of 2021, 89.3 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. Recently, LIFE provided 825,000 meals to refugees in nine states including: Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Minnesota and California.
“Refugees in the U.S. do not get enough assistance, so being able to provide them with our (LIFE) support is quite rewarding,” said Dr. Hany Saqr, CEO. “They have already been forced to uproot and leave their home countries to start a new life here in the U.S., which is stressful enough on its own, so we are happy to provide refugee families with food baskets to dimmish their worries of providing meals for their families over the course of the month,” he continued.
Food baskets consisted of staple food items to get families through a month, such as: cooking oil, rice, dates, sugar, flour, canned food items and more. LIFE supports refugees globally through by providing them with basic living needs such as food, shelter and clean water.
