The Angel Network has supported several community-based initiatives to help feed areas most affected by the recent looting; food parcels are being distributed.

 

South Africa (20 July 2021) – South Africans have been hardest hit by the looting. Many people who had jobs last week now find themselves unemployed and unable to put food on the table for their families.

The Angel Network rallied, and the organisation has spent the last year feeding millions of South Africans and foreign nationals by supplying food parcels, stocking soup kitchen pantries and supplying funding to smaller organisations working on the ground in the poorest communities in Gauteng.

Their continued support through feeding programmes has meant many children were able to eat each day, that men and women had the strength to face each unknown and that those who were sick had the strength to pull through and recover.

To this day, one can scroll through the feed on the Angel Network’s Facebook group and see the continued support of feeding programmes. These are some of the community initiatives supported this Mandela Day.

Lakeside – Food Parcels

Jeff Twala was able to feed 39 employees from the Lakeside BP and an additional 27 employees from Boxer, Spar, Webbers, and Shoprite thanks to a donation from the Angel Network. The food parcels will go a little further while the community rebuilds.

Sunninghill and Rosebank – Care Packs

Debbie Meyer and friends took the opportunity to spoil nurses and doctors working to relieve Covid-19 in Gauteng. The ladies made up pamper packs which they handed out to medical staff at the hospitals in Sunninghill and Rosebank.

“Just when the Covid health care workers thought they might be getting some relief, the looting shattered our country. Numbers are sure to spike after huge crowds gathered with no masks. As the hospitals fill up again, the same nurses and doctors will STILL be there, looking after us, comforting us and consoling the dying. True angels putting their lives at risk every day.

We delivered gifts to two more hospitals in the last couple of days. Sunninghill and Rosebank and we still have so many more Covid HCW’s to gift, appreciate and honour.

This would not have been possible without The Angel Network SA, and our incredible donors. We can’t thank you enough”

Nelly George Children’s Foundation – Soup Kitchen

A donation of fresh ingredients meant the children got to have a wholesome, warm meal for Mandela Day.

You can follow their activities via Facebook here and reach out to Glynne Goldberg Wolman via email should you wish to donate.
