Kit distribution to students in precarious situations (France)

 

On October 30th, 2021, IAYSP-France organized, for the second time activity of food and hygiene kit distribution to students in precarious situations. In the framework of this second distribution, they approached a Congolese food bank based in France. It recovers unsold food from several stores in the city.

For this second activity, we had 30 students registered. Of the 30, eleven students were able to make the trip. Indeed, this day was a heavily rainy day, which restricted the movements of everyone. Despite the weather conditions, we had many more participants than the first edition on May 29th, 2021. Some of the participants of the first edition came back to receive the donations again.

The participants were able to exchange with most of them, and they showed them their gratitude and encouraged IAYSP to continue the initiative. IAYSP is thinking about making this activity regular. Discussions with food banks are underway.
