Help Feed Ponta Do Ouro

Help Feed Ponta Do Ouro

Personal message

Our names are Megan and Judy and we live and work in the beautiful coastal village of Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique.  

The reason we are starting this campaign is because the Ponta Community really needs our and your help.  Ponta is facing a large crisis due to the Covid - 19 limitations implemented on the country.

A town hugely dependant on tourism and visitors from South Africa and Abroad has now become a ghost town.  Leaving most of the people that have jobs in our local community unable to work, due to the closure of most business in the town.

These people are often the sole breadwinners in their families and sadly no work means no food on the table for their families. They also have no clear indication of when things might return back to normal with areas solely reliant on tourism expected to recover last.

So Today we are asking you as people who have visited and love Ponta Do Ouro and its community as we do to join together to help us feed Ponta. For as little as 1500 meticais per month which is the equivalent of R400 or $22 you can help feed a family of 4 with basic staple foods for up to a month.

This Campaign began 6 weeks ago, to try to help feed the Ponta Do Ouro community during Mozambiques Covid - 19 State of Emergency Status. 

As of the 1st of June we have entered our 3rd month of lockdown and things are getting BAD, shocking in fact.  For a community that lives hand to mouth under normal circumstances the situation has now become desperate.  These people literally have no money and no food.    They queue for hours in the hope to get their names on the list for our next distribution.    To date, thanks to donations, we have distributed over 6 tons of basic food staples to 370 families in need.    We unfortunately haven’t even scratched the surface, and our donations are running low, while the list of hungry mouths to feed grows daily.    There is still no end in sight to the lockdown limitations which are having a devastating affect on the local communities. 

Please help us to feed this community by donating to this cause. All funds donated will be used to purchase basic food hampers.

Any donation big or small is welcome.

To all of you thank you, stay safe until we see you on our beautiful beaches again!
