A nonprofit organization distributed donated groceries to residents of public housing towers in North Melbourne that are under “hard lockdown” on Monday, July 6. The residents are not allowed to leave their homes, according to reports.
A block of towers in North Melbourne was placed on total lockdown by the Victorian government after a spike in coronavirus cases in an effort to curb any potential spread.
Resident Hava Buday shared video on her Instagram story showing members of Australian Muslim Social Services Agency (AMSSA) Youth Connect pushing carts full of groceries door to door in her tower.
The group shared a video of a trove of donated goods on its Facebook page and said that donations would not be accepted on Wednesday because the donation center had reached its capacity. Credit: Hava Buday via Storyful
