Summary

Rural communities rely on schools & feeding schemes for their children to get a meal daily. Now during the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa, with schools shut - many children are at home with even less access to food security. This makes them & their families even more vulnerable. Nourish's goal to keep providing these vulnerable families with food parcels, food gardens, food security and hygiene support over the next few months as winter and Covid-19 make a serious impact. Growing resilience.

Challenge

The challenges poor families will face during the Covid-19 pandemic are many. Many 'bread-winners' in these marginalized communities have lost their income & are unable to access Government support. Especially adjacent to the Greater Kruger many jobs have been lost without tourism & this loss of income impacts heavily. Families are suffering without access to food, & without knowledge of where money will come from to buy food for themselves & their families over the weeks ahead as Winter nears.

Solution

Providing food parcels with staple food items and basic hygiene products - allow families to eat, and maintain the necessary hygiene protocols to prevent the spread of the Corona virus further. Our longer term sustainability plan include not only food parcels with basic food provisions, but home based vegetable gardens, and tippy taps ( with soap) so over the next few months families can become more resilient by having food to stay healthy and soap to try to stay hygienic.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact will be that we help the village of Sigagule & over 500 people we are already helping on a weekly basis to stay fed & hopefully healthy during this time by trying to mitigate risk & provide food security & support. This list of struggling families grows weekly as poverty spreads. Our goal will be that communities can start to become more resilient as their gardens develop, and that together we can help the impoverished communities to survive the country-wide pandemic.
