The effects of the corona virus have hit our rural area without warning. Thousands of jobs in were lost.
And we are just at the beginning of this Pandemic.
Since 26. March all South Africans live under one of the worlds strictest lockdowns.
And in our area this means over 80% unemployment.
NO WORK - NO MONEY - NO FOOD
Please help us to pack food parcels for our local people.
They sit at home, locked in since weeks, can't go to work , have lost their jobs and many don't get any official help.
NO FUTURE - NO HOPE
The children, who otherwise have at least a small lunch at school, are now at home and often do not get a reasonable meal.
Without the support of some NGOs (Non Governmental Organisation = Non Profit Organisation) and private individuals, people are left with nothing.
Please support us to pack and deliver food parcels for our local people. A bag of 6kg costs about 300Rand = 15 US$ and can feed a family for about a week.
EVERY LITTLE AMOUNT COUNTS
Of course we in the tourisms industry are struggeling, but with creativity and ideas we will make it somehow. And we see a lot of support from international guests. We pay our employees even while our lodge is closed.
But so many others have lost their jobs and will have no work for many months. They have no perspective. They need all the support they can get.
The whole world has changed. Many have big problems themselves. And they are happy if they survive this crisis.
But if you can help, then we are more than grateful and thank you so much.
