We’re so grateful to everyone who generously gave towards emergency food relief efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic. Together, we rasied R400,000 for beneficiaries most impacted by the virus.
These funds were used to distribute monthly food vouchers to:
- 96 Work Readiness graduates,
- 48 moms who have been through antenatal and postnatal groups, and
- 47 food-insecure families identified by our partner schools.
We also topped up school feeding schemes so that 200 families received meals five days a week (not twice).
In addition, donations provided:
- R30,000 towards the Zoe Project and Fix Forward’s support of pregnant foreign nationals
- R58,000 to the Rise Against Hunger feeding campaign.
Let’s stand together to see individuals and families move from surviving to thriving.
As lockdown levels change, we are wrapping up this relief project and focussing on our core work of development. We are committed to seeing people re-enter the workforce and being equipped to provide for themselves and their families. Our work readiness programme, The Zanokhanyo Network, is ideally positioned to do just that.
You can contribute towards this work, and help empower the unemployed with the confidence, skills and resources they need to obtain meaningful work.
