We originally set up as a small group to help with the immediate financial emergency for people who lost income suddenly in the first lockdown. We did this using a mutual-aid model: redistributing cash from local people to local people, as well as distributing free veg bags from local food growers Planna Fwyd. We know from your feedback that it made a difference! But the fund was meant as solidarity, not charity. In the longer term, other solutions are needed, locally and nationally. We're passing our remaining funds to two other local organisations whose aims chime with our own: Planna Fwyd and CAMAD.
Thank you for being part of MSF.
Diolch yn fawr.
