Bishop Ellis Foundation for the Poor and Needy (BEF) has a mandate to provide compassionate support for persons in need. To provide mainly a balanced diet in the form of food baskets and to assist in ways that will help to make the person in need self-sufficient via face to face intervention. Our main task is providing monthly food hampers to between 200 and 250 persons. We have a group of energetic volunteers, who hand out the baskets, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The supplies support the client and in some cases entire families for the up to three months unless they qualify for long term assistance.
