With the coronavirus outbreak, children in vulnerable communities in South Africa are in great need for books and hygienic/food supplies.
Read to Rise works with 14,600 children in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town, South Africa as well as 5,400 children in Soweto, JHB.
We would like to give each of these children a Care Pack with an Oaky and the Virus story book, an Oaky Activity book, a bar of soap, a cloth mask, a juice and a packet of crisps.
Oaky and the Virus is a book written by South African poet and social philosopher Athol Williams and illustrated by Taryn Lock. The book is about acorns Oaky and Oaket who need to stay at home when a virus came to their town.
For only R100 a child, a child will receive a Care Pack.
