My daughter Salma, sister Tasneem and I, Zaheera, have decided that we would like to raise funds for the underprivileged and unemployed living at the informal settlements in the Phillipi/Schaapkraal area, concentrating on the Olieboom and Egoli informal settlements.
My family lives in the area and we have witnessed firsthand large amounts of infants and kids, some as little as two years old begging for anything to eat on a daily basis. The informal settlements are mostly populated with unemployed people looking for any form of daily casual work. We would like to provide a hot meal at least every Friday afternoon. Starting with all the children, elderly and then moving to the women and men. We raising funds to hopefully provide each household with a basic food hamper during Covid19.
Hopefully not letting anyone go to bed hungry especially the children. Our aim is to at least sustain the people of these settlements who have no form of income for at least the Covid19 period.
The funds will be used for the preparations of hot meals. As well as for basic essential items for the grocery hampers that will be distributed door to door.
