Switzerland, December 2020
This was the sixth time that volunteers from the Know Thyself as Soul Geneva and Lausanne gave a helping hand to the food bank Partage in Geneva. We assisted in preparing nearly 6,000 bags of non-perishable food for people in need. Each volunteer had to register in advance to help either in the morning or in the afternoon.
Due to the increasing number of recipients, the association Colis du Cœur (Heart Bags) is now responsible for the distribution of the bags at four different locations in Geneva. Any person with a certificate from the social services in Geneva is entitled to receive a bag once a week. They also get a bag of fresh fruit and vegetables prepared by Colis du Coeur.
The activity was carried out in accordance with all applicable Covid-19 health and safety requirements (e.g., face masks, disposable gloves, etc). We are happy to have the opportunity to serve our community in these special times. The many volunteers make this immense charity event possible every week.
