A DONATION OF R200 WILL BUY ONE FOOD PARCEL AND 100% OF ALL DONATIONS WILL GO TO THE COVID-19 CAUSE.
In an online stakeholder meeting today, the DVG, together with Rotary, the St Francis United Church, and Samaritans and key individuals confirmed its plans to commence with an intense food donation drive. The plan, in cooperation with our VillageSquare SuperSpar, is that all food parcels 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 will be assembled by authorised volunteers and, in an effort including SAPS and security companies, be distributed to the Sea Vista elderly, single women and children with no income and the most desperate. These people are being identified by community leaders on the ground. As you can imagine, this is a large-scale operation and we believe we will need at least 1 000 food parcels over the next couple weeks, depending on how long the lockdown continues for.
Can your company assist with a R50 000 donation (we are a registered NPO for accounting purposes) which will provide 250 food parcels? Or can you spare R1000 for 5 parcels or even just R200 which will provide 1 parcel? If so, we ask that please donate to:
