Icelandic charity Fjölskylduhjálp Íslands made an emergency call yesterday. The charity assisted 430 families during its last food distribution—a new record—and all of its shelves are now empty. The charity pleads to the Icelandic nation to contribute.

A large group of unemployed individuals and others who don’t have a steady income rely on Fjölskylduhjálp Íslands for help during Christmas, accepting donations of food and clothing, mbl.is reports.
Representatives of Reykjavík University made a donation of 600 clothing items yesterday morning, which teachers and students collected in a few days.
Fjölskylduhjálp Íslands accepts food and clothing donations at Eskihlíd 2-4, 105 Reykjavík, on Tuesdays between 9 am and 1 pm, Wednesdays between 9 am and 6 pm and Thursdays between 9 am and 1 pm.
