FOOD – A basic human right. You can help right now!

As the months roll on, the initial wave of Covid-19 donations are dropping, but winter has begun and the urgent need for food relief continues. If you are able to give, no matter how much, we’ll make sure it goes a long way. By donating once-off or on a regular basis, you are ensuring people in South Africa can eat today and beyond Covid-19.

Your donations will support the following vetted, impactful organisations feeding children, the elderly, the disabled and refugees:

WE ARE SUPPORTING

DONATE TO FOOD:

LEARN MORE:

Child headed Families

Ort SA Cape is feeding teachers and learners that participate in their education programmes,  who are still not all benefitting from school feeding schemes. With the support of their networks they are assisting the most needy – including child-headed families, and those with little or no income.

The Homeless

Over 8000 homeless people live on the streets of CT, South Africa. They are often overlooked for government programmes. Now, in winter, hungrier than ever, they need our help to eat.  Souper Troopers commits to feeding and supporting the homeless in CT –  before, during and beyond Covid-19.

Children

Projects support at-risk children and infants at educare centres, food kitchens and neonatal hospital wards in impoverished communities. During Covid-19 these partnerships, provide excellent networks to support and feed those young people who depend on the UJW for their most basic needs.


Elderly and Disabled

This project feeds over 1000 people from the Hangberg community in Hout Bay, CT, weekly. Vulnerable families that depend on one income per household are impacted by the lack of work caused by retrenchments. Food parcels distributed comprise staples as well as fresh produce to boost immune systems.


Refugees

H18 Foundation runs a social upliftment programme employing and upskilling refugee women. During Covid-19 this was expanded to supplying food parcels to 57 families in Joe Slovo township in CT, the community many of the women live in. Refugees in SA are especially hard hit as they are not eligible for government social grants, emergency relief, and have few rights.

PLEASE NOTE: We will add and
change beneficiaries over time.
