(International students collect food packages from the Newham Community Project food bank in east London on February 16, 2021. – “It’s hard to buy food, the prices are so much higher than in India”: without work or state aid, young foreign students, like Jay Patel, came to the United Kingdom to realise their dreams are plunged into poverty because of the pandemic. Despite the rain, dozens of young people like him, hoods on their heads and shopping bags in their hands, congregate in front of the small room of the Newham Community Project association, in East London, to collect rice, vegetables and other foodstuffs. The Newham Community Project, in partnership with Abdullah Aid, provides a weekly food bank service where food and essentials are provided to over 1000 students every week. Photo: TOLGA AKMEN-AFP)
