Feeding Communities During Covid19

Personal message

Ukama Community Foundation has 10 Community Soup Kitchens which are feeding between 1200 and 1500 people PER DAY. We work in the following areas: Vrygrond, Overcome Heights, Masiphumelele and Ocean View. 

These are areas of extreme poverty where the Covid19 lockdown has hit hardest, thousands of people now unemployed due to Covid19, adults and children literally starving and not knowing where their next meal will come from. 

Our Soup Kitchens are providing a hot and nutritious meals to the community every day. Without it hunger and disease will take over.

We would like to be guaranteed of being able to continue this until December. In order to do this we need around R60 000 per month. 

Your help would be greatly appreciated. It is up to all of humanity to beat this virus. Without the help of our wider community we will not be able to reach our goals. "It Takes A Village"

Ukama Community Foundation

Ukama Community Foundation Logo

Ukama Community Foundation was started in 2013 to uplift and brighten the lives of township kids. We supply and equip 7 informal creches to run feeding schemes for over 400 children per day in Vrygrond, Western Cape. We do this through help from private donors and community businesses. Our main aim is to assist in Early Childhood Learning by ensuring the children are in a safe environment with their basic needs met. To this end we ensure food for breakfast and lunch every day, kitchen equipment, blankets and clothing where we can. We run a program supplying learning equipment such as books, worksheets and volunteers who can assist with teaching programs.

We have a number of other organisations we support as follows:

GirlPride- an organisation for supporting Teen Moms In Masiphumelele

Mothers Unite- An after-school program for children living in gang infested Lavender Hill

True North- An NPO regulating and assisting all child-care facilities in Vrygrond/ Capricorn and Overcome Village.

The Hebron Project- An NPO assisting children and families in the Wetlands of Masiphumelele
