The Kariega Foundation thanks all who joined our #GivingTuesday campaign and raised over R50,000 to keep 1,000 people fed for two months over the festive season.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that aims to unleash the power of people and organisations to transform their communities.
We would like to continue supporting our communities to provide food to those in need. If you are able to donate, all funds will go to make a huge difference to the lives of South African people that are facing huge challenges.
WHEN A CRISIS ARISES - HEROES APPEAR
While COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on all our lives, the impact is more devastating on the poor and vulnerable. Many families in the communities surrounding Kariega Game Reserve in South Africa are struggling to put food on the table. Yet, amidst this crisis, there are people that have stood up to take action. These are our local heroes who refuse to sit by and watch people suffer.
The Kariega Foundation is proud to be a partner to five Community Kitchens and three Age-in-Action Centres run by our community heroes. Together, we are feeding over 1,000 people who have no means to feed themselves.
R2,500 (US$160, €135 or £121) = 1 month of supplies for 1 facility feeding 60 people.
R600 (US$39, €33 or £30) = 1 week of supplies for 1 facility feeding 60 people.
R200 (US$13, €11 or £10) = 1 day of supplies for 1 facility feeding 60 people.
Funds raised will ensure the continuity of essential supplies including soup mix, soya mince mix, fortified porridge and fresh fruit. All donations, large or small, will make a BIG difference.
