Baking Pizzas to Lend a Hand

At least a bread a day
At least a bread a day

The Bergsig Support Group in Springbok Northern Cape still continues to use their oven to provide baked bread to those who are unemployed and hungry, even though funds are limited.

‘As many as 10 million adults and nearly three million children experienced hunger in the past week in South Africa in 2021, and 2.5 million adults and 600,000 children were experiencing perpetual hunger, hunger every day or almost every day. (26 May 2021) https://www.dailymaverick.co.za/article/2021-05-26-food-crisis-2-5-million-south-africans-experience-hunger-every-day/

Not much has changed since then, people still go hungry every day. The funds received allow rural communities like the one in Springbok, especially children and the aged can go to bed with a meal.

Bergsig has now started with its income generation project. The past weekend they will be sold 65 pizzas to generate an income, in order to bake bread to supply to the needy in the community. Their target is to sell at least 100 pizzas per month, and this income will buy ingredients to bake bread and provide it to those who need it in their community.

Thank you for your continued support!
