Help Phronesis Students Development Trust pack 1000 food and hygiene parcels for underprivileged, informal and rural communities during the Covid-19 Lockdown. #Stay@Home
Phronesis Students Development Trust (PSDT) NPO primarily serves to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals ‘4’ (QUALITY EDUCATION - Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development). PSDT is based and serves beneficiaries in the Kya Sand Informal / Rural Settlement in Johannesburg North, South Africa, which is home to over – 30 000 of people (at last count).
The story of Kya Sands is a story of ash, smoke, and broken promises. Even though there are many initiatives to better the conditions of people living in informal settlements, including electrification and housing upgrades, there is a massive influx of people coming every year to find work in South Africa’s economic centre. Not all of them can afford housing, and many end up in informal settlements like Kya Sands. Also, many of those living in informal settlements are foreign nationals, providing their own unique set of challenges for integration, community and safety and security.
The COVID-19 virus threat is very real and as our Country (South Africa) goes into lockdown, we are not ignorant of the fact that our beneficiaries will be highly affected. We have over 1,000 children from disadvantaged homes and up to 250 elders in our community.
The PSDT NPO is mobilizing individual philanthropic and private-sector resources to support this critical Medical Disaster. PSDT is a catalyst for eradicating poverty in South Africa, we stand in solidarity with the whole world assisting where our resources allow us to save humanity during this lockdown to contain the COVID -19 virus.
We are raising emergency response funds to enable the children, the elderly and the multitudes of under-privileged families to respond to both immediate and planned needs related to COVID-19. These include food parcels, hygiene care, cleaning soaps and detergents and multivitamin supplements for the children.
