There are 324 persons enrolled in the Digital Aid Program. Recipients of the aid are those in hardship due to the effects of the covid-19 pandemic. They receive weekly food aid in the form of a digital voucher directly to their mobile devices which they can use to buy food, milk or medicines at any Albert Heijn supermarket nationwide.

“I & my husband, we are both recipients of the help you are giving through the digital aid program. We would like you to know that what you are doing is a big help to us, especially during this pandemic. If its not too much to ask, we would like to ask for an extension, since are still struggling to make both ends meet, because we lost some works due to this crisis.” one of the letter said.

Atleast 4,311 Digital Food Vouchers has been given to the community since the start of the program.
