KLTV Recently visited Bradford to check out the work of local community organisation NAFS.
NAFS, which stands for Nutrition, Advice, Fitness and Selfcare, supports socially isolated women, the elderly and people from BAME communities and their young families, to improve their health and wellbeing.
Nafs is an Arabic word meaning, self, psyche, ego and soul, and this is reflected in the work they do in the community.
After the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, NAFS founder Nadera Amini saw the need for more support to be given to those most vulnerable in the community.
Nadera set up the foodbank scheme with the aim of providing that little bit of extra support to families and individuals in her local area.
Now, with support from the local council, as well as the tireless efforts of volunteers from the local community, NAFS regularly delivers parcels containing food, sanitary products, clothes and even toys for children.
The NAFS foodbank scheme is a wonderful representation of how a community can come together in times of hardship, for the true benefit of all.
