Special Olympics Food Parcel Drive

Personal message

Your donation of R 250 will feed a family of 4 for 3 weeks. Each food parcel contains:

22kg of fruit and vegetables, 10 kg of maize meal, 3 kg of beans and lentils,and nutrition packs. 

Our communities across South Africa have been badly impacted by the Covid-19 virus and the lockdown. Our economy has been compromised and we are facing a multitude of new social and economic challenges of which the most terrifying for many people is hunger!

Government and other relief efforts are still not reaching many of those who are marginalized, and the most at risk from corona. The athletes of Special Olympics are one of these populations.  
Our population, who are living with an intellectual disability, normally rely on piece jobs to survive and these jobs were the first to go. They are now left with no resources and no way to support their families. Those unable to work are supported by family or caregivers many of whom have also lost their incomes. 
For those still at school, their main meal of the day was provided by their school and they are now no longer receiving this support.  

We have been reaching out to our athletes to assess the need and have heard many heartbreaking stories. We spoke to a mother whose whole family is living on sugar water, her main concern right now is that they are about to run out of sugar.
We have spoken to families that have not eaten for days and some are surviving on bread and water once a day. We have also spoken to child-headed families where they have been scavenging in dustbins to try and survive. We know that aid is not reaching them and have been trying through whatever funding we have been able to find to provide them with food parcels. The need is growing day by day and we have therefore decided to start this campaign to raise money to make sure that food parcels reach those that are in the most need.  

We have partnered with Urban Greens to create a food parcel that is nutritious and that will provide the essential vitamins and minerals required to maintain a healthy immune system. We believe that fresh fruit, vegetables and legumes will provide well-balanced meals for our members.
