CAN - Cape Town Community Action Networks

Personal message

In response to the growing need our CAN - Community Action Network -based out of Tokai / Kirstenhof Area has set up a fundraising drive to support vulnerable people in our communities as well as in the areas around us where many asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants are specifically in need during the nationwide lock-down due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Whilst provisions have been put in place by the South African government for some of the most vulnerable members of our society, much of the Covid-19 relief is not available to the refugees, asylum-seeker and migrant community.

Funds raised will go directly to Food parcels, Soup Kitchens, Baby-Parcels, Electricty Vouchers and essential hygene products that will assist those migrants, asylum-seekers, refugees, underpriviliged people in communities and their families who are in most desperate need at this time.

CAN's have been setup through the Cape Town Together action Group and it is a rapidly developing community-based response to COVID-19 and it is growing every day! We aim to inspire ordinary people in every community to form local Community Action Networks or CANs.

200 Rand (10.50 Euro) can make a food parcel that sustains a family of 4 for a week.  Items in a parcel can be a combination of either: mielie meal, samp & beans, tea, sugar, pilchards, baked beans, soya mince, chakalaka, pasta, soap, oil, peanut butter, milk, sanitizer, and toilet rolls. 

We will also use your donation to prepare baby parcels.

It is important that we donate to people in genuine need. 

To ensure this we vet the situation from the people who are requesting the food or we know their situations through the different organisations and people we work with.

 *As per the campaign creator’s request, funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution*
