Despite the coronavirus, the Hurstin apu (‘Hursti Aid’) organisation distributed food to poor and disadvantaged people in the Kallio district of Helsinki, 17 April 2020. Owing to the lockdown, queuing was abandoned and food was distributed whenever people came to ask for it. The charity distributes food and clothing parcels all year round to those who need them, and it organises various events.
