WHO WE ARE
FEED LONDON by Miracles
Feed London is a project being launched by the UK charity, Miracles in December 2020. We will support children and their families from London’s five boroughs with the highest rates of child poverty. We will provide fresh food, interactive recipes and support for seven days over the Christmas holidays when many families are stretched to breaking point. All participating families have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.
Miracles is a UK charity that was launched in October 1994 during the height of the Bosnia-Herzegovina war (92-95) when our founder, Theo Ellert, was taking humanitarian aid to civilians caught up in the conflict.
Since the launch, Miracles has worked extensively throughout the UK supporting children and their families living in poverty and helping them through crisis situations.
We help by providing two support mechanisms:
Crisis funding – 24 hour turnaround – practical and rapid support for families who have nowhere else to turn. We provide grants that cover a broad spectrum of issues - from hospital travel and accommodation, food, clothing, additional medical equipment, through to helping to halt evictions, reconnect house utilities, home medical needs and house adaptions (such as a new washing machine). We even occasionally fill the fridge with food so a family can eat well. For a deeper understanding of our crisis funding visit Miracles impact pages
Respite breaks – for families with children recovering from or undergoing treatment for serious illness. Spending time together as a family outside of hospitals and treatment centres can be incredibly therapeutic and healing. We provide the location and, if needed, the travel, the food, the entertainment as well as a bit of spending money. To learn more about our holiday caravans on the South West coast visit Miracles respite pages.
