Starting a support group to help those in need during difficult times can have a great impact and make a difference in many people’s lives. The message of unity and encouragement to reach out for help without shame or embarrassment is important and can create a welcoming and supportive environment.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many individuals and families found themselves struggling to make ends meet. For one person, the experience of receiving help from their community inspired them to give back in a big way. In March, when the world went into lockdown, this person and their family were among those affected by the sudden changes. But despite the challenges they faced, they were met with an outpouring of support from friends and neighbours, both near and far. This experience left a lasting impression, and they knew they wanted to do something to help others who were going through similar struggles.

Starting in June, they began giving small food hampers to families they came across who were having a difficult time. They also offered guidance and support in any way they could. Through their efforts, they caught the attention of others in support groups, who encouraged them to start their own group. The idea was to spread their help even further, to more people who were struggling during these difficult times.

And so, the group was born. The founder of the group wants everyone to know that they should never feel embarrassed or ashamed to reach out for help. They understand what it feels like to be in need, and they know that many others have been in similar situations. Though they may not always have food available to offer, they are dedicated to finding help for those in need.

The message of the group is clear: We are in this together, and together we stand. No one should have to face hardship alone, and by coming together as a community, we can make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling. Whether it’s offering a small act of kindness or providing a listening ear, there is always something we can do to help our fellow human beings.
