During lockdown, we have seen many things change in South Africa. Job loss and the ability to bring money home or even put food on the table is becoming extremely difficult for many South Africans. Many charities have been donating to help fight this crisis but I felt there was so little that I could do in my own home during lockdown. We decided to directly target children affected by the ending of the government feeding schemes.
I have decided that I would like to help the communities closest to me that are in dire need. The biggest is Dunoon (situated in Blouberg) about 15 min from my house. I will be donating and handing out chocolate spread sandwiches and fresh apples/oranges to children that need it most. This is not an essential food (such as mieliepap) but is food that will refuel childrens vitamin levels, fill tummies and put a smile on many young childrens faces during these extremely tough times.
There have already been many hand-outs of donations from our situated donations area in Racing Park, opposite Dunoon. We hope to reach the point where we can support other townships, communities and people in need. For those that don't know, the government has stopped the feeding schemes within the schools in DuNoon. Thousands of children have nothing to do and get nothing to eat.
This is our time to make a small difference in people’s lives and bring joy, hope and strength back into our people of South Africa.
All it takes to make over 100 sandwiches is 10 Euro

Over the past two weeks we have grown a huge amount. We went from making 350 sandwiches a day to making 2800 sandwiches a day. We have reached the point where we have over 25 families working together and have made over 4000 sandwiches in total to feed to children. . . . .
