John was in Paris this weekend for a photo expo staying with an old friend who volunteers at a food bank. He asked if he could take some photos and spent a memorable evening in the company of some very interesting and exceptional people. "I've had some of the most interesting and diverse conversations with some remarkable people tonight" John told me over the phone.
I asked myself how our society can misplace and undervalue these people. How can we put this right?
Here are just a few photos and some more details about the charity involved and how you can help.
WHAT DO WE DO ? We organize raids: distribution of foodstuffs, clothing, blankets, hygiene kits, etc. We refer migrants to aid associations, particularly for learning French. We forge links with the most deprived to bring comfort and human warmth. WHO ARE WE ? Our association is still young and we are, for the moment, and not counting the punctual help of other volunteers, only 3 permanent staff with various associative experiences around humanitarian aid (in particular within the association "Entraide Citoyenne" "). HOW DO WE WORK? We rely on three levers to source and prepare our marauders: We collect foodstuffs which most often come from donations from professionals (bakeries, supermarkets, grocery stores,). We buy the complementary products necessary for the preparation of the meals that we distribute: most often vegetables and fruits, but also bottles of water, pasta, cakes, ... We organize clothing collections, which we then sort in order to distribute them most judiciously to the most disadvantaged. We organize punctual events within a vast private space respecting all security standards: filming of clips, photo shooting, sports competitions, musical evenings,… in order to collect funds for the purchase of other products essential to the functioning of the association: bowls, spoons, glasses, hygiene products, food, etc. Given the current health situation, the organization of such events is obviously completely suspended. We hope to be able to resume this activity when the epidemic situation allows it, by scrupulously respecting health protocols. Hoping that many of you will come to help us and help the poorest! A little help does us good. THE BUNKER TEAM
