The Angel Network, a non-profit organization was started 7 years ago because of the growing levels of poverty with the aim of giving a hand up as opposed to a handout. Sadly, since Covid19 pandemic the NGO has had to give handouts to prevent millions from hunger.

In the past 2 years, The Angel Network has supplied over 10 million meals across all 9 provinces of our country. This would not have been possible without an incredible community member who has, since the pandemic, donated over R25 million to the South African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD). Together with the SAJBD, Wendy Kahn chose The Angel Network as the custodian of these funds which have been used to assist hundreds of NGO’s with food relief. Together with other members of the community, The Angel Network has raised over R30 million for food security since May 2020. Since the Angel Network receives no Government funding and rely purely on donations, they’re now turning their focus to soup kitchens and vegetable gardens and are running over 100 of the soup kitchens between Gauteng, the Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal.

The Network is establishing vegetable gardens to help communities become self sufficient, receiving the hand up they so deserve.

Should you or your organization wish to become involved in developing vegetable gardens or starting soup kitchens, please email [email protected]

Currently, The Angel Network is raising much needed funding for Ukraine and with the help of the Ukrainian ambassador, hope to send thousands of medical kits to those in the war torn country. The invasion of Ukraine has presented Europe with its greatest humanitarian crisis since World War II

and the Angel Network believes that no one should sit back and do nothing, quoting Eli Wiesel “The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference”.

A message from Angel Network:

“While one may feel that as individuals we are not able to offer any meaningful help to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, if we work together and combine our efforts, we can indeed make a significant difference.

Being so geographically far from Ukraine, the only way in which we as South Africans can offer aid, is by sending money to assist in the supplying of food and other essentials such as medicine to the thousands of displaced men, women and children. Please help us help Ukraine. No amount is too small. Collectively we will be able to make a meaningful contribution to help alleviate some of the pain and suffering in Ukraine”

“We are now concentrating on their annual appeals and have just collected over 30 000 Easter eggs for orphaned and vulnerable children around the country. Right now they are focusing on raising funds for their Cosy Comfort packs for homeless people who are invisible, ignored and forgotten. It’s that time of year where many of us get cosy under our electric blankets or warm ourselves with hot water bottles and thermal underwear. Sadly, for hundreds of thousands of people, the approach of winter is terrifying when home is a park bench or a piece of cardboard on the pavement.

Should you wish to provide comfort to so many so that they too can feel cosy, warm and remembered during the coming cold months, or to their Ukrainian appeal, please consider making a donation to
