The COVID-19 Food Relief Program

May - November, 2020

As Covid-19 continued to deepen the hunger crisis in the world’s hunger hotspots and creating new epicentres, many communities in Nigeria were extremely impacted. The pandemic was the final straw for millions of people struggling with poverty, inequality and hunger. While the government did its bit to mitigate the situation, Back to School Africa also took the responsibility of standing in the gap for households and communities in which most of our beneficiaries reside through the Covid-19 Food Relief Programme.

Our goal was to ensure that hunger would not hinder our beneficiaries from achieving their academic goals. After understanding the depth of the situation through an intensive monitoring and evaluation process, we intervened by supplying targeted communities in Calabar, Lagos and Asaba with palliatives.
