According to news today, the Icelandic church has had 2578 family requests for assistance.
In 2008 , there where 570 requests for assistance from January to march that year.
But this year , the same time, 2578 familys requested assistance from the Church.
Many children are in these familys.
On wednedays,when food is distrubited , about 1000 to 1500 individuals come and ask for food.
And behind every individual ,there is usually a family.
