Meals On Wheels is committed to providing a meal and any other form of support during this time to assist the residents that are affected by the KZN Floods.
KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (12 April 2022) – Meals on Wheels has pledged to provide cooked meals to all the camps where residents are currently hosted due to the damage caused by the floods.
Meals On Wheels Community Services (MOWCS) South Africa CEO has announced that the non-profit organisation is ready to hit the ground running with relief to KwaZulu-Natal communities affected by heavy rains that resulted in the destruction of infrastructure, including homes.
“As a non-profit organisation that specialises (but not limited to) in providing meals to the destitute, we believe that hunger is the extreme materialisation of poverty and human deprivation; therefore mitigation of this, especially during this tragic disaster, is vital. Food must be the least of things that the residents worry about, especially at a time like this. We are committed as an organisation to provide a meal and any other form of support during this time to assist the residents that are affected by the KZN Floods,” said Nelisa Mabenge, CEO at Meals On Wheels.
MOWCS will be providing cooked meals to all the camps where the desponded residents are currently sheltered following devastating floods that wreaked havoc in different parts of KZN, especially the coastal belt that includes eThekwini Municipality, Ilembe District, parts of uMgungundlovu and Ugu Districts.
MOWCS will further assess the situation and the damages thereof to provide more assistance to the affected communities. The organisation is further inviting strategic partners and donors to join efforts in responding more effectively to this disaster as some areas are not accessible.
