Due to Covid 19, a lot of people in the country were left unemployed, which created a huge rate of hunger in the country. This issue motivated them to create their Messy Aid project.
Some economies are predicting that there is a possibility of a huge inflation to come and have a negative impact in the country. This could lead the things in the country to be expensive and majority of the people not being able to afford essential things. The project started with Kay Lorentz and her trainer in 2020 when she was attending a Vulnerable Kids Training program, and in her networking, She and her team realised that in the state the country was in, hunger was concerning and how it could kill many, especially children. They decided as a team to look for funding to start their project.
Kay say when they looking for a community to feed, they first find the “heroes” of that community, people that want to be effective in their community but do not know where to begin. After finding those heroes, they get information from them, about their community and which areas need food.
