Coronavirus: Fund launched to support members of the BAME community

In collaboration with the Windrush campaigner Patrick Vernon OBE, we have launched The Majonzi Covid-19 Bereavement Fund on GoFundMe, to support members of the BAME community who have lost loved ones to COVID-19.

Majonzi in Swahili means grief or deep sorrow. The fund will provide small grants to organise memorial events and tributes to celebrate and commemorate the lives of loved ones post lockdown.

We will also want to raise money so individuals can access bereavement counsellors and therapists reflecting religious and cultural diversity of the community through a network of qualified therapists through a platform called AUNTIE.

Please donate and support this important cause in providing support and solace to families and local communities coming to terms with COVID-19.
