Food Drive Fund
Tens if not hundreds of thousands of Malawians, Zimbabweans and those from many other African countries living in South Africa are being affected most heavily by this economic unsettling due to Corona.
They have no claims to any form of government support and since most of their work is informal or casual labour, of which they usually survive off the income hand to mouth - these times have left a vast majority of them with absolutely nothing.
Just imagine for a moment, living in impoverished conditions through these cold winter months, miles and miles away from home, with no food on the table and no idea how or any certainty when your will get any more work or money.
We realise we can't fix the problem nor can we help everyone - but we also realise that every little helps, so we're doing what little we can to support our extended community of Malawians and Zimbabweans.
Sarah (from Malawi) and Joyce (from Zimbabwe) have been working with us for about 5 years and 1 year respectively. Sarah and Wonder will be heading up the Malawi mission and Joyce the Zim mission.
We have already established 11 families (each ranging from 2-5 people) who desperately need support. This was without reaching out very far at all, without a doubt there are countless more.
We have established that a family of up to 5 people can survive for one month on a food parcel consisting of; 10kg maize meal, some chicken/ fish, 5kg rice, 2l cooking oil, 2kg sugar, 500g tea bags, 1kg milk powder, vegetables, soap and toilet paper.
The cost of this is ZAR 1500.00
We are contributing 10% of all sales made online towards this fund but through this voucher you can directly contribute ZAR 250, ZAR 500, ZAR 1000 or ZAR 1500.
It's also a great birthday present to buy someone; instead of giving your loved ones more of what they don't need, why not contribute towards food parcels on their behalf (let us know if you do this and we can make a nice gift card for you with details).
This mission is about embracing connection, about understanding that we are all in this together, that we need to support one another. It's about inspiring each other to do better, to be better - to be a conscious and active part of this new world we are shaping. So whether it's this cause or another (there are so many people doing amazing impactful work at this time) or your own (look after your employees friends!), let's keep on giving and remember you're only as strong as the weakest member of your team - and we are, humanity is - all on the same team!
