Mrs Speelman spoke on behalf of a thankful community this morning. This was unexpected and renewed our belief and drive for this mission. We need to continue the food drive until at least the end of June 2020. To do so, we appeal for further donations.

The plan has worked well and all food parcel distributions are funnelled through one responsibly managed operation thus avoiding duplication.

One delivery of 250 food parcels costs R50 000. Each parcel contains sustenance ingredients such as maize meal, sugar, eggs, rice, soup packs, flour, milk, oil. They are distributed to the Sea Vista elderly, single women and children with no income and the most desperate firstly in each round and after 4 weeks of distribution now, the households can’t believe that they will receive a 3rd parcel soon. Some say they have never seen assistance at this scale. And the evidence is clear: everyone is calm, awaits their turn, are thankful without complaints and we haven’t seen any unruly behavior as experienced elsewhere in SA.

It’s important to note that there is a concise database of names and addresses to whom we have delivered. Before drawing conclusions when you hear from someone who says they aren’t on a list or have not received, please check with us.

As you can imagine, this is a large-scale operation, but is really making difference. Be part of it and please consider a donation, no matter how small:
