Hundreds of international students in the UK have turned to food banks after part-time work and funding from families dried up during lockdown.Hmmm....

"It's a very difficult time we are facing," says Rahemunnisa Shaik from Hyderabad as she piles groceries into a pram.Wait, what? A pram...?
She is studying for a two year Masters in Business Administration at the University of East London (UEL).

She gave birth to their first child, a baby girl, in May.*blinks*
"My husband is supporting me. He lost his job because of coronavirus."
