The Community Development Department (JAPEM) of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, in collaboration with Youth Volunteers along with 10 volunteers distributed food packs across the nation yesterday.

The food distribution was part of the initiatives carried out by Youth Volunteers to ease the burden of the needy during the COVID-19 crisis in the country. Food was distributed to 162 homes as well as those undergoing self-isolation at home in the four districts.

The food will be delivered to those undergoing self-isolation daily until they complete their Quarantine Order (QO).

The volunteers helped with packing and sorting the food items at the Indoor Stadium and were given a short briefing prior to the task.
