Residents of OWL haven night shelter always struggle to meet basic needs like food and toiletries. Although the shelter does provide a place to sleep, they are not able to cover all residents with the limited resources. HOPE Africa bought food using the donations received from this appeal. The food was handed over in the week of 03 November 2023.
Residents were happy to receive the support and they expressed their sincere thanks for always remembering them. The management of the shelter also expressed their thanks for the continued support. It is through your generous contributions that we are able to continue providing this support.
We would like to thank all our donors for contributing to the magnificent work done since the start of the campaign. HOPE Africa was able to reach out to many people who would have otherwise not enjoyed the festive seasons. Some have been able to get back on their feet and remain very grateful for the support received. More stories will be posted on our website hopeafrica.org.za
Unfortunately, we will be deactivating this project. Cape Town residents are in the winter season which is full of rain and flooding. We are going to focus our attention to disaster relief for residents affected by flooding. We would like for you to consider moving your contributions from this project to HOPE Africa disaster relief. This will ensure that we respond to the current needs of those in need.
HOPE Africa worked in partnership with the Black Sash to provide Happy, healthy Me – an interactive workbook to children in ECD centres.
Happy, healthy Me is a short and fun way for young kids to be introduced to the Constitution, their socio-economic rights, and their food rights. The book also teaches young children how to start a food garden, how to cook easy recipes, and where some of their food comes from! The book comes in both a full colour and colouring book version. The children will have lots of fun learning about different food types, how to plant food and even how to make simple, delicious meals with the help of their parents or older siblings.
We hope the book inspires our little ones to start their own vegetable patches at home and grow their own food.
We were also able to donate wet bags donated by UCT Sports Department.
