Rita Ora supports the Help A Hungry Child appeal. She has announced that she is backing the appeal that was set up by the Evening Standard newspaper and its partner charity The Felix Project, which aims to aid London’s most deprived children.
Help A Hungry Child will provide food for the most disadvantaged primary schools, with the goal of supporting hungry children and their parents.
While speaking to the newspaper, Rita discussed her interest in the appeal. She revealed that she feels it is essential to do all she can ‘to help my community.’
This appeal is currently focusing on Stanhope School in Greenford, where stalls will be set up to allow kids to choose the food they need before heading home.
The food has been supplied by donations from supermarkets and wholesalers.
Help A Hungry Child plans to eventually roll out their stalls to more 120 schools across the capital, with donations meaning The Felix Project can staff all stalls for two years.
The project also plans to finance the network of distribution vans and depots required to reach around 50,000 children and their families as well.
This is not the only charitable cause that Rita has announced she is supporting.
Rita told the publication that she is becoming an ambassador for Space for Giants.
This is a conservation charity which works to protect Africa’s surviving elephant herds.
She also became an ambassador for the cause after completing a ‘life-changing trip’ to east Africa to get a chance and see the work carried out by the charity firsthand.
‘I just went on this incredible trip and saw the wild animals, how they lived and being in their habitats. I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to shine a light on something so important,’ Rita confessed.
