Hope SA Foundation report as at July 2022.

South Africa is in a precarious situation because prior to the pandemic, it faced severe socio-economic challenges which is now exacerbated by the pandemic, lack of government support, July unrests and flood disaster. A combination of local and international factors caused a weaker rand, higher inflation, a faster increase in interest rates, slower economic growth, and a continued rise in the unemployment rate. Using food aid, water supplies and basic essentials,  Hope SA is on the path to build a pathway to peace, hope and food security for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change. Problems resulting from this include crime, hopelessness, a state of inequality, and the poverty cycle. A concerted effort between governments, NGOs, the private sector and the international community is the only way to break the cycle.

The low number of college-educated individuals contributes to a growing decrement of living standards, lack of job opportunities, absence of committed community leadership, which exacerbate poverty, and stunts development. Thereby, there is a missed opportunity to improve the well-being and competitiveness of the community. Food is too precious to be a waste. It costs a lot of money, natural resources and a great deal of damage to the planet. It is even more precious when you realize that millions of South Africans are  struggling to have a nutritious meal every day. Our main challenge is to make sure that all the surplus food is not sent to landfills but to feed the hungry. To date we have been providing support to familes affected by disaster nationally.

Through your kindness and donations, Hope SA FOUNDATION has reached a milestone of 600 000 meals since April 2020. we worked on the ground as first responders to disaster relief during July unrest and Flooding in KZN, provding food, water and basic essentials. 

Severe flooding and landslides caused by heavy rainfall on 11-13 April caused the death of 448 people, displaced over 40,000 people and completely destroyed over 12,000 houses in the south-east part of South Africa. It also severely damaged infrastructures: roads, health centres, schools. HOPE SA TEAM worked closely with area leaders to provide support to affected families and 3 months later we are still feeding and providing water and essentials as government has not been very proactive to date.

The biggest joy is seeing childrens faces light up, and have parents send us prayer and gratitude for our service in the community. 

Right now we desperately need an more support to purchase a vehicle / Bakkie to collect surplus food and to deliver cooked meals.

The importance of supporting families without income is crucial. We are here to be of service to mankind. Gods grace makes all things possible and we are eternally grateful for your donations as Hope SA is not funded by government or corporates. We seek partnerships and colaborations to continue our work and to create sustainable options.

According to UNICEF, Africa’s child population will reach 1 billion by 2055, making it the largest child population among all continents. 

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global economies continues to have devastating consequences on families. South Africa's deteriorating food security is mainly driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and mitigation measures as well as high food prices, drought and economic decline. In the period (January - March 2021), 11.8 million people (20% of the analysed population) were expected to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3).

No matter how old you are, where you live, or what you can afford, you can  become an ambassador of Hope for  a child or a community in South Africa and be part of a positive impact in our world..

WE ensure children and families have food and one less stress to worry about. If the children are fed, it is  crucial to keep the poorest and most vulnerable in school while providing a boost to learning and health. Our food drives ensure that people of all religions, race and ethnicity are supported with basic food necessities. This has assisted children in completing their studies and in helping unemployed mothers cook healthy meals for their families.

Hope SA foundation is working on creating the next generation of  meal programmes that are sustainable and effective.

Some of our work is highlighten in pictures attached.
