Box-Aid: Eliminating Global Issues, Bringing People Together

Get to Know Us: The Compassionate Minds of BoxAid

Katriel's life story is a testament to resilience and compassion. Orphaned at 9 years old, she turned her struggles into fuel for change. Her first act of kindness came from a place of deep understanding; giving her lunch - a simple jam sandwich wrapped in a newspaper - to a hungry street child. That single act was the first step to a wider initiative, igniting a lifelong mission to uplift the vulnerable and fight societal ills like poverty and homelessness.

Fueled by a heartfelt desire to make a difference, she turned her attention to the pressing issue of malnutrition in her community, an issue resulting in life-threatening conditions such as Kwashiorkor. This project gave birth to Lishe Ya Damu, or “food for the blood” in Swahili. Over time, Katriel’s mission blossomed into BoxAid to cover not only nutrition, but also all other essential human needs such as shelter and clothing. Today, Katriel leads BoxAid with the same unwavering commitment to humanity and the planet.
