Buy Food for Lao Families

31 Dec , 2021  

Thanks for my family and friends who have given me money to purchase food packjages in Laos!

I have completed 3 food drives already and helped with another. A food parcel costs $75 NZD and will feed an average family for a 2-4 weeks. Lao people eat sticky rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each food pack contains a 50 KG bag of sticky rice, a box of tinned fish and a pack of noodles. These are the most common essential food items needed.

Due to COVID, Laos shutdown in March 2020 and most people have had no work or income since then. There is no Government assistance. Everything in Laos requires permission and the “Naiban” (village headman) has given approval and identified families who will receive donations of rice.

I receive the money in NZ and transfer it direct to Laos, food is purchased and distributed to families the same day. See photos of who you are helping here!
