Baking Bread to Close the Hunger Gap!

COVID-19 persists and continues to leave the most vulnerable to fight the hunger pandemic! Rural communities in South Africa struggle to meet their own basic needs under normal circumstances. With the added burden of the COVID-19 pandemic many are desperate to at least feed their families. In September to December 2020 a total of 9.34 million people in South Africa faced high levels of acute food insecurity and required urgent action to reduce food gaps and protect livelihoods. In the projected period (January - March 2021), 11.8 million people are expected to be in crisis and will likely need urgent action to reduce food gaps and protect livelihoods. 

The Rural Development Support Program works in partnership with local Community Based Organisations in assisting those that are vulnerable during this time. The funds raised through GlobalGiving has been provided to Bergsig Support Group’s feeding project to aid in their fight against hunger in their local community in Springbok, Northern Cape. The beneficiaries of this support were unemployed adults, children who are dependent on the school feeding scheme program but who were unable to access these meals due to lockdown. A lot of these adults have only the child support grant as an income into the household. The elderly was served, as well as those on HIV and TB treatment who need a meal to be able to take their medication. Everyone was very grateful to receive the support. A total of 124 meals were served as well as loaves of bread were provided to these households.

A big thank for your kind donations!
