Foodbank Volunteers

  • VO94730


This is an opportunity for us to show the kind of love for humanity that abides in this beautiful city of Aberdeen to the newest members (immigrants) during their integration and inclusion process. Helping in the way of supporting families and individuals in need of these food items due to lack of funding, no job, or even homeless situation (with no recourse to public funding from the government), amidst other integration and inclusion struggles will go a very long way.

Most of these beneficiary members include men, women, children, and young ones, who are not necessarily asylum seekers or refugees but immigrants who have come to our beautiful host city and made it home. The cultural, social, and moral differences that exist between their home country and Aberdeen (host community), have made settling (integration and inclusion) more difficult for these members. No job equates to no money, which also equates to no food. Mamacita Foundation, as part of our social responsibility is partnering with other organisations and working endlessly to ensure a swift integration and inclusion process for these members of our community.

In our bid to manage food waste reduction as well as get it to persons in need of these food items, we are calling on you, yes you, to join us as we work with @CFINE, @ Fairshare, and @ Coop group in reaching out to persons.

Your service to humanity is always appreciated and we look forward to working with you in supporting others in need. Nobody should feel alone.

A fantastic opportunity to help and make a real difference. All volunteer support is greatly appreciated. For more details please contact Vivian Draghici at email: or telephone: 07449826988.
