Bushbuckridge Receives Food Parcels
6 weeks ago the Statistician-general produced a report indicating that 55% of South Africans are hungry. This grim picture is going to be aggravated by a weakening rand, higher fuel and food prices, increased inflation and major job losses in the mining and other sectors of the economy. Gift of the Givers has commenced with the distribution of food parcels to vulnerable communities. We intend, with support of corporate partners, to run this programme till December next year endeavouring to provide food parcels to qualifying families monthly to ensure sustainability.
Gift of the Givers has commenced with preparation of the first 100k food parcels with the first recipients in Namaqualand.
In Bushbuckridge 1500 food parcels together with hygiene packs and blankets were distributed to the people.
