With the rise of COVID-19, and the danger it poses especially to the elderly and immunocompromised, we realize that those who are vulnerable and most at-risk may struggle to get the basic food and supplies they need. Through a network of volunteers and partnerships with local organizations, Khidma plans to deliver basic food and essential supply kits to those populations.
In what areas of Minnesota can I receive service?
Khidma is currently serving the majority of counties within the Twin Cities metro area: Anoka, Hennepin, and Ramsey. Additional counties will be added as we grow our volunteer base.
Are these services free?
Khidma Essential Kits, Khidma Conversations, and Khidma Meals are FREE. These services have been generously sponsored by partner community organizations. Khidma Delivery Run cost depends on the purchased items' cost.
What safety measures do you have in place to protect the volunteers and beneficiaries health and well-being?
All volunteers are screened using a questionnaire to ensure they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and have not been in contact with others whom have tested positive. Additionally, those that are at risk or are immunocompromised are unable to help with deliveries but can volunteer to help remotely in other areas such as marketing and admin work. As for beneficiaries, items will be dropped off with very minimal contact.
