Operation Antifreeze is a registered non-profit organization and we have been making a difference in our community for the last 20 years. Our main project is providing food parcels to 640 children across Ekurhuleni.
These children have been identified by their teachers as coming from very poor homes in desperate need of assistance. For many of these children, the meal they receive at school is their only meal for the day. Some do not eat from Friday lunchtime until they receive their lunch on a Monday.
A hungry child cannot concentrate and reach their full potential. The food parcels we proved ensure they have something to eat at home and over the weekends. We provide stationery for these children at the beginning of the year, blankets in winter, and Christmas hampers in December.
We also assist a number of other organizations, a rehabilitation center, a care center for the homeless, an after-school feeding scheme for children in Kingsway informal settlement amongst others. Due to the effects of Covid on our economy, we are also assisting many families who have lost their sources of income.
