We are sometimes asked why we send donations, including food, to Nauru. The following pictures taken in Nauru’s Eigugu Supermarket by Australian electrician George Goring in May 2015 illustrate one of the big problems for refugees on Nauru.

While our current transport options don’t allow us to send fresh fruit and vegetables, we are able to send other nutritious items such as nuts, dried fruits, and vitamins. Check out this list for other food ideas to contribute to future shipments.
