Large amounts of people, communities and families have been left jobless and unable to pay rent, buy food and necessity for their families due to the global CIVID-19 crisis.

This is a time where we as South Africans need to come together and work as a country to provide, assist and uplift ‘those in need’ where possible. We all know our government loves to dish out empty promises, so it’s up to local communities to assist the most vulnerable as well as anyone else who can play their part, no matter how big or small.
