Food relief to fight hunger
I have food on the table!
R1 600 can provide a needy family of 6 with food for a month
Children and adults with mental disabilities are going to bed HUNGRY at night. Donate R1 600 to provide a poor family of 6 members with food relief for a month. There are 500 families on our waiting list for food parcels who need your support.
“Thank you so much for the parcel and the sponsors; it really made a big difference to me and my kids. I literally had no money and no food and this came just in time. May God bless you and all that were involved, thank you so much again! “
With the support of various funders, we have already provided 1 218 food parcels to 497 families but a single food parcel lasts only a week.
Persons receiving disability grants do not qualify for food parcels from the Department of Social Development, and they are not coping financially with most of the breadwinners not earning an income during the lockdown.
Donations of food and purchased food items are delivered to our Training Workshops Unlimited Athlone facility where they are sorted, packed and distributed by staff following strict health protocols. All drivers have essential permits and wear the necessary PPE protective gear when they make deliveries. Our food parcels are then delivered to the homes of our beneficiaries in disadvantaged communities, sparing them the indignity of having to queue for food in public places, lessening the risk of contracting COVID-19 and offering them hope and a sense of community.
