Feeding Pietermaritzburg

Feeding Pietermaritzburg

Personal message

While the implementation of the national lockdown to flatten the curve of the COVID19 pandemic, many families have been left destitute without the means to earn an income and provide for their families.

Focusing on Pietermaritzburg and surrounding areas, Porky's People, has created this crowdfunding campaign to support as many families as possible with food and other essential items during the lockdown. Over 100 families have reached out for support.

Funds raised will be converted into digital food vouchers to the value of R250, that can be redeemed at any local Shoprite. If any small businesses would like to support our initiative, donations in the form of food parcels will also greatly be accepted.

During these uncertain and unprecedented times, we need to look to our communities and lend a helping hand where we can.  

While we are physically apart, we are still connected and have the possibility to create meaningful change.

Alone we can’t do much, together we can change the world. It takes a village.

How you can help

  • Donate to our BackaBuddy crowdfunding campaign to help us purchase digital food vouchers for families in need. Donate via Snapscan.
  • Share our campaign to help us reach more people. Did you know? Crowdfunding campaigns are 350% more likely to succeed if shared on social media.

 

Applying for help

We will re-open our sign up form as soon as we have been able to help the first 100 applicants. Thank you for your patience.

Vouchers will be purchased and distributed based on funds raised by our BackaBuddy crowdfunding campaign.

 

* Please note: Funds raised will be administered by BackaBuddy NPC and transferred directly to Shoprite for its intended purpose.
