Good day,
Thank you to each and every individual for reaching out over this period of lockdown. In an extremely trying time globally we saw a community stand together like never before. From every person on the receiving end of a warm meal, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We have been able to serve over one million meals during our national lockdown that started in March. More than half of the individuals receiving meals are children and so we are incredibly grateful for what we have been able to do with your support.
Over 2 million children go hungry in South Africa every day. Over and above being malnourished, children are too hungry to attend school or focus on their work.
With Early Learning Centers opening up recently, multitudes of children will rely on school feeding programmes. For many, this means one meal each day. 
We continue to appeal for support for this project to be able to feed more children. 
Through our GlobalGiving account, for this week only, all donations up to $50 will be matched at 50%! Help us grow our donations by clicking this link:
Thank you for your support.
Kind Regards,
The Love Story team

The last few months have been a whirlwind. With so many of our plans and projects being put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to adapt as things come our way. 

With the current national lockdown in South Africa, all schools are closed, and therefore our usual feeding schemes through the creches are not open. However, many of the community leaders who run the creches are now running soup kitchens to feed to hungry in their communities, which includes the hundreds of children that would normally be fed through their creche feeding scheme. 

During this time we have been working tirelessly, with the support of many businesses and members of the public, to ensure that the thousands of starving, destitute people in our communities are being fed. To date, we have been able to distribute over 300 000 meals, but there are still many many more mouths to feed and people to reach.

We are off to a busy start this year! Our offices opened on 13 January after the Chrirstmas break and we have hit the ground running! 

Over December we were able to bless all of the creches we support with what we call 'Buckets of Blessing' which are buckets (or bags) filled with non-perishable food items to see them through over the festive season. This is always an exciting time for us as it is a special Christmas blessings to so many families in need. 

We were also able to hand out these parcels at our City Feed, which is the soup kitchen we run every week night throughout the year. We were able to bless everyone with a bag of goodies as well as a hot meal, bread rolls, cupcakes and donuts! It really was a special Christmas celebration. 

In the month ahead we will be doing more hand outs at the creches we support which are all in underprivileged and destitute areas of our city, as well as doing a hospital handout to new moms at one of our public hospitals where mom's often leave without having the necessary items to care for their babies. We are so looking forward to this. Please make sure to have a look at our next project report which will include photos from these handouts. 

Blessings, 

The Love Story team

Through this project we have been able to continue the work that we do to support creches in the underprivileged areas of our city. We provide these creches with soup kitchen ingredients weekly that enables them to cook for their children. Many of these children come from homes where parents are unemployed. 

Along with feeding these children, over the last few months we have been able to bless many of them with pencil cases and blankets, which are basic needs that a lot of the creches we support don't have.  

In the month ahead we will be blessing the children at all our creches with Christmas parcels, including stationery, toys, lunch boxes etc. as a gift for the holiday season.
