450 City Property employees made their way to 012 central to do their part for charity. 

Their goal is to pack 72 576 meals to distribute to various unregistered crèches in and around Gauteng. 

City Property and Rise Against Hunger have  partnered up to supply nutritionally balanced meals to underprivileged children. 

Heather Prinsloo, the HR Executive at City Property, stressed the importance of looking after young children. 

"Nelson Mandela reminded us that as a nation we need to look after the children as they are our future" she said.  

Brian Nell from Rise Against Hunger highlighted the knock-on effects of the initiative "The benefits are far reaching. By making sure that the children are fed, the crèches save money which they can use to improve infrastructure and eventually become registered and in turn they can access government funding and grants". 

Perhaps the most important aspect of the project is the sustainability, the meals will feed 277 children five meals a week for a whole year.
