Durban - The impact of Covid-19 and the emergency lockdown measures that have been put in place to combat it are having a devastating effect on vulnerable communities.

Feed SA, a non-profit organisation which feeds close to 6 500 people daily, is in need of funds to continue its relief efforts to some of these communities. 

The organisation assists with life-saving support to people who:

  • Cannot afford to stockpile,
  • Live in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions,
  • Are sick or elderly and cannot risk exposure,
  • Do not receive any income if they do not attend work,
  • Do not have access to healthcare.
Feed SA is challenging corporates as well as individuals to come on board and help towards putting together essential bulk packs to be distributed to 5 000 households across various townships including Soweto, Orange Farm, Ivory Park and Alexandra.

Each pack contains a selection of non-perishable goods, personal and sanitary items, cleaning materials and household items. These essential hampers are valued at approximately R480 and will sustain a family of four for close to two weeks.

In addition to the desperately-needed support, the hampers in turn enable longer periods of social distancing and ease the financial burden for those who are most affected.
