Appeal: Empowering young people at risk of exploitation

By October 7, 2022Appeal

As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues, out-of-control food and fuel prices are driving vulnerable people across the world to starvation and deprivation.

In the UK, Inflation at 10 percent is a 40-year high and the cost of household essentials like food, energy and fuel have rocketed.  

In response to this crisis, the UK Government has brought in a £400 package to help with household energy bills. While this has been welcomed some may feel this is an extra benefit they don’t personally need. This could be your opportunity to help others who are more vulnerable. 

FSCI is  seeing fuel and food prices skyrocket, leaving the most vulnerable families reeling from the increased cost of living across all the countries that FSCI is involved with. Inflation in Moldova is now an eyewatering 40 percent. The cost of heating a home has quadrupled. In Bulgaria inflation is running at 30 percent and the cost of essential food items has doubled and more. This has placed a huge strain on the overall affordability of FSCI’s programmes. 

We urgently need your help to be there for those who need us most. Donating some or all of the £400 the government has given you to our House of Opportunity programmes will mean so much to the most vulnerable. Please pass it forward if you can, and thank you for your generosity.

We urgently need your help to ensure that FSCI and its partners can continue to prevent modern slavery and turn lives around for vulnerable young people.
