the project

Over the period of years the Global Bassolians for Development and progress observed that food insecurity is a serious problem in Rhode Island. Many of our seniors in Rhode Island face a lot of challenges to actually buying food. Even in area with more suppermarkets, Seniors face too many challenges to purchase food for themselves. The latest state of senior hunger in America report from feeding America found that about one in 14 seniors (7.1%) in the providence metroplitan area are food insecure. The consequence of not having enough access to healthy food are well-research and be dire. Due to the insecurity food many seniors experience more likely to have chronic health conditions; 19% more likely to experience high blood pressure, 90% more likely to experience asthma 233% more likely to experience depression Recent reseearch also found that older women in Rhode Island are likely to worry about buying food. On average, nearly a quarter of seniors in Rhode Island have poor access to supermarkets. Poor access for seniors is highest in new shoreham and warren. Due to the food insecurity our seniors face in Rhode Island the Global Bassolians for Development and Progress family will take the initiative to join others humanitarians organizations to provide foor for our seniors communities with in the Rhode Island area. The Global Bassolians for Development and Progress family will continue to provide food for the seniors even by the grace of God the COVID-19 Pandemic is over, because we learn that the food insecurity is one of the more challenges our seniors face within Rhode Island.

Because my team and I organized this organization to increase awareness of issues and activities leading to support and conduct challenges research, and developmental activities, to increase public awareness of issues in the world's protection and restoration; to provide research and information to foundations and corporate giving programs about the needs of communities, towns, villages, and churches such as schools, clean water, food, clothes, and others materials. So in this light its time for the Global Bassolians For Development and Progress family to undertake this project to implement their goals and make impact in the communities for our people that's in needs. As we all can remember due to the COVID-19 pandemic it bring lot of challenges and difficuties to many families in America and they cannot afford to purchase food for they and thier family on a daily basis. Since we are there as nonprofit organization to protect and restore live in the world, there's no time to waste, its time for us to engage some of this challenges and bring hope to our seniors communities or people in Rhode Island. We fully believe that through this fund raised campaign will help our seniors to reduce the insecurity food among them in Rhode Island.Due to the insecurity food make them to experience lot of chronic health condition and this brings pain and sorrow to my heart and there's need we deal with this on the daily basis for our seniors to live a better life that they desever.
