After last year’s pandemic, the poverty-stricken class of the society faced more and more devastating challenges. With very little work available the pandemic had affected them financially, emotionally, and mentally. Marcus Rashford joined hands with a charity called FareShare, which aimed at uplifting the people who lost their way during the covid-19 outbreak.
His conversations with UK’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson ignited two schemes in the schools of the country which enabled deprived children to fulfil their needs. The #MakeTheUTurnCampaign was a total hit as the food system completely changed in British schools owing to Rashford’s heroics.
