Hello everyone,

I am Mable and I'm serving as a United Nations volunteer to help promote the fundraiser campaign and raise funds for Zambian youths and their families (especially low-income families) who are in need of food supplements and supplies during the critical times of COVID-19.

the Youth and Press Development Organization project for Zambia

This fundraiser is initiated by the Youth and Press Development Organization (YPDO), which aimed to support the Malalo Sport Foundation (MSF) in Zambia.

The Malalo Sports Foundation has soccer, chess, and community projects such as school education projects in order to support youths and their families. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown, the participants and their families are now situated in a predicament while requiring more food and other essential supplies.

For more information about the organisation, please visit www.malalosport.com

Poverty and Inequalities in Zambia

According to the World Bank, Zambia ranks among the countries with the highest level of inequality. As of 2015, 58% of Zambians earned less than the international poverty line of $1.90 per day, with rural poverty rates standing at about 77.9% and urban rates at about 27.5%. Nevertheless, unemployment and underemployment in urban areas are serious problems.

Zambia Health Crisis

Moreover, Zambia is also experiencing a generalized HIV/AIDS epidemic, with a national HIV prevalence rate of 12.40% among adults (7th highest globally - CIA World Fact book). With the lack of healthcare and supplies, the level of HIV/AIDS infections is increasing rapidly.

Current Situation due to COVID-19 infection

As of August 24, 2020, Zambia has confirmed 11,148 cases and 280 deaths. With escalating infections and prolonged lockdown, more households are suffering, and low-income families become more vulnerable. Lives of them are kept threatening by severe food insecurity, cuts in salaries and an increase in the unemployment rate.

How to Response? Let's support Zambian families!

To help relieve these problems and providing low-income participants of Malalo Sports with more resources, your actions can matter a lot. And, all funds go to the cause.

All the collected funds on this page will be transferred to the organization.

Please share/donate if you are willing - $5 can feed a family of 6 for one day!
