Child Food Security Drive, Rotary Club of Newlands, Cape Town

Personal message

Please join hands with us to help us to continue sharing food with vulnerable children in Cape Town during the COVID lockdown.......

Hi ! My name is Jeannine Ibbotson and I’m a Director of the Rotary Club of Newlands (RCN), located in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. I am raising these funds on behalf Rotary Club of Newlands, which is a voluntary non profit  organisation, and registered Public Benefit Organisation.  We are part of Rotary International - a humanitarian service organization open to all. Learn about us:   https://www.facebook.com/NewlandsRotary ,  https://www.newlands.org.za.

We are a voluntary organisation with no overheads - so 100% of funds received by RCN from BackaBuddy for this campaign go directly to alleviate hunger. 

We have already delivered over 200 000 meals directly to over 1000 Early Childhood Development Centre pupils and their families . And we have also assisted in raising significant donations for Philisa Abafasi Bethu who are now able to provide meals to over 3000 children and the elderly a day .  

This was all made possible through the donations of many people and the joyful buzz at the kitchens every day or the smiles as food vouchers are handed over make our hearts sing and are a testimony to the power of crowdfunding.

But the need has increased greatly with time -so we have raised our fundraising target so that we can continue assisting the vulnerable. Recent surveys indicate that over 75% of poorer South Africans are now unemployed. 

Beneficiaries for this fundraiser are 20 Rotary Sponsored Early Childhood Development Centres and Philisa Abafazi Bethu  (https://www.philisaabafazi.org

Any donation you choose to make will go to these causes without delay - the kitchens and food delivery mechanisms  are up and running and we are supported by trusted networks established over a period of 27 years. Donations are paid into the Rotary Club of Newlands bank account and all spending is undertaken by ourselves. 

R500 will give up to 170 meals and $50 will provide up to 275 meals -  but every penny makes a difference !

Rotary Club of Newlands wishes to thank Benita Doria Rixton, Co Founder of the Young Actors Studio for assisting us with voice over ! No costs were incured in making our promotional video.

Rotary Club Newlands Hunger Cause

Rotary Club Newlands Hunger Cause Logo

My names is Jeannine Ibbotson and I’m a Director of the Rotary Club of Newlands.  Cape Town is experiencing an exceptional hunger crisis.  Our government took fast action  to prevent  the spread of Covid-19 , but the necessary lockdown has precipitated an intense food security crisis.

Funds raised will go directly to alleviate hunger, by supporting existing Non Profit organizations and Rotary Club of Newlands sponsored Early Childhood Development Centres, who are feeding children and their families.
