English Premier League leaders Liverpool decided to help feed the needy and the elderly in their community amid the Corona Virus pandemic, in cooperation with a local church.
A group of volunteers from an Anfield church located in front of the clubhouse runs a food bank and cooks meals for people as part of a community service initiative.
The UEFA Champions League holders offer free meals that include food eaten by sailors in northern Europe and popular in coastal cities such as Liverpool.
Usually, food is eaten at the church compound, but in light of the general isolation measures imposed in Britain due to the pandemic, volunteers launched a service to deliver meals outside the stadium.
Chelsea, Liverpool’s rival in the league, are also helping groups of people in need, as the London club announced that it will provide 78,000 meals to health workers in the country and charities that help the elderly.
British Foreign Secretary Dominic Rap revealed that his country will extend the measures of public isolation imposed by the pandemic for at least another three weeks because the easing of the measures will harm public health and the economy.
The British Ministry of Health said today that the death toll from Covid-19 disease, caused by the Coronavirus in hospitals across the United Kingdom, has increased to 13729 people, an increase of 861 cases from the previous day.
