Support Leonora's drive to feed hungry children

Personal message

This campaign is about an ordinary woman who started something extraordinary. This is the story of how compassion and love builds communities. 

Please support our local food drive. 

Leonora Fransman is an ordinary woman who lives in a modest home in Eerste River. In April, she met a man who had lost his job. He was with his wife and two children, living in an underprivileged community in Cape Town. They hadn’t eaten for two days and were asking for Leonora’s help. In response, she cleared out her cupboards and gave him whatever she could. When she arrived at his home, she saw the extent of the need in his neighbourhood. She rallied for support through her own channels, calling for donations to help support her food drive. Since then, with the help of a neighbour, Leonora has been cooking big pots of steaming hot nutritious stews every day and distributing them to needy families and children.

We’ve been supporting Leonora with this initiative since June 2020. To date, we have collected and donated nearly 1.5 tons of food to Leonora’s kitchen, feeding nearly 1 500 people a week, with limited resources. We need to keep going, to keep supporting Leonora, to keep feeding hungry children.

Watch the video to find out how we got involved and how you can help Leonora. The GTP is providing logistical support to Leonora in this food drive, collecting and channelling donations and coordinating the supply of donated goods.
