The One Small Act of Kindness charity is keeping a list of people in need; they have already delivered 4000 food parcels but need help to do more.
Johannesburg, South Africa (15 May 2020) – Desperate not to turn hungry people away, One Small Act of Kindness, a charity in Johannesburg, started a crowdfund to purchase food items for food parcels. To date, they have raised R155,000.00, which has helped them support hundreds of families.
One Small Act of Kindness’s Facebook inbox has been filled with pleas for help. They have tried to help every person, not wanting to turn anyone away. Even though the charity has managed to raise so much, the need is so great that they are already running low on supplies and funding.
