The Blue Bucket Campaign is a campaign organised by Dorcas Country Offices in Albania, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine in cooperation with local partner organisation. They organise food collections, in blue buckets, and offer these buckets to marginalised people, such as older persons and families living in difficult circumstances, in communities in Eastern Europe.
With this campaign, the Dorcas Country Offices and local partners raise awareness on what individuals and community actors can do for marginalised people in their community or country. The Blue Bucket Campaign initiatives motivate the community to care for and protect its marginalised community members. For example with community activities, neighbours that care, volunteerism and practical support. The aim is to contribute to stronger communities that reach out to marginalised people.
Churches, NGOs, schools, private sector, and others are asked to participate in this campaign and collect food. Many volunteers, also young members of the community, offer support in packing and distributing the blue buckets with food. These Blue Buckets are distributed in communities where Dorcas and partner organisations participate in the so called Community Safety Nets with specific care for marginalised people.
