The COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown of communities have left many households destitute, due to the loss of their jobs and income - particularly for those who live hand-to-mouth. A heartbreaking new reality for developing areas of our country have resulted in these same families being desperate for support.
We need your support more than ever to donate towards our COVID-19 Essential food and hygiene parcel program and support our community vegetable gardens.
To assist families in need, we have partnered with Village Power Traders, a large family-run wholesaler, to source wholesale food and hygiene products at bulk cost price. Our base parcel includes essential food, hygiene and PPE products and costs only R255 per person and is well below retail value. Additional female sanitary and baby items are added to parcels in consultation with families in need. Shipped with these parcels, we are providing families with customised educational materials to educate and empower these families in the fight against COVID-19. In addition, we are maximising food production at our community gardens that support the elderly, children and contribute to soup kitchens. Please do consider donating as a monthly donor via our
What is our promise?
The number of food parcels that have been delivered will be validated with pictures and letters of thanks from families that have received them. This information will be made available to all supports and members of the public on our website and. We will ensure to acknowledge any support given through our social media networks and website, as a small token of our appreciation. Please keep track of our goals and progress by visiting our website.
What more can you do to support Call 2 Care?
As part of our The iGardi Project, we currently have 132 gardens in Paarl, Guguletu, Langa, Imizamoyethu and Montana. The aim of these gardens is to add fresh food to the parcels. Our vegetable gardens in these communities are the staple source of food for many people living in developing communities. With schools closed, and most of the food gardens situated in schools, we are personally doing everything possible to ensure these Food Gardens thrive and will continue to benefit the families of these school communities.
Call 2 Care relies heavily on public, corporate and social gatherings to get the funding needed to maintain our vegetable gardens. Without being able to host socially conscious events and leverage the support of the funding that is provided to host these events, we are going to struggle to be able to deliver on our promise of Food Security to these communities.
In the spirit of Ubuntu, please assist us in playing our part to help those most affected and in need during this time.
