Covid-19 The Aftermath

L.C.C.A. Makes Public Appeal for Donations in Response to an Increase in Demand for Assistance

Hamilton, Bermuda, June 8, 2020 The L.C.C.A. is making a public appeal for donations to help meet the increase in demand for its services brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The L.C.C.A. regularly provides General Assistance in the form of Grocery vouchers and Belco vouchers to their clients and amongst other requests, pays for some prescription drugs for clients in desperate need of vital medication.

The L.C.C.A. had to temporarily close its doors and stop its services during the Lock Down / Shelter in Place.

Since the L.C.C.A. reopened and began distributing General Assistance,  during the period May 20, 2020 – June 8, 2020, $4,775 in Grocery Vouchers were distributed and $300 in Belco vouchers, as Belco has deferred bill payments for some.

Chairman of the L.C.C.A., Jane Spurling said, “There is an increased need to provide more financial support for our current clients coupled with a rise in new applicants who likewise need financial supportWe are appealing to those who are in position to do so, to consider providing financial support to the L.C.C.A. so that we can in turn increase our support for our present clients as well as our new clients, the majority of whom are single parent families, seniors, and those with special needs. During this time of the COVID-19 Crisis, our present clients and our new clients find themselves in need due to furlough and job redundancy. The LCCA believes that this distressing situation will continue for months and certainly continue well after the Government unemployment benefits have ceased, if not through 2021.

To enable us to meet this increased demand and possibly do more, we’d like to ask for your help.  Please visit our Donate Now  page to do so.

Thank you in advance for helping us to help, something we’ve been doing since 1932!
