Soweto’s elderly Pampered with Food Parcels

With a rapid acceleration of confirmed Covid-19 cases in South Africa, the pandemic continues to affect tens of thousands of people in profound ways, including loss of work, poverty and lack of food supplies. As the lockdown takes its toll on on those in need, Chillax Shisanyama and car wash teamed up with Moatshe Catering and Projects to deliver over 27 parcels of food to vulnerable and elderly people in Braamfischerville and Meadowlands locations.

The Moatshe Catering and Project director, Joey Moatshe, who headed the team, mentioned that they used the church database of the profiled families that needed to be prioritized during the lockdown so as to acquire food parcels.” This donation does not end here, we will continue supporting the vulnerable among us in dire need of food supplies.” Added Moatshe. Each food parcel donated contained basics like mealie meal and meat, breakfast cereal and eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables, tinned foods, pasta and rice, including teabags and orange squash. Essentials like shower gel, roll on and toilet roll were also included.

Gladys Matabane, one of the food parcels beneficiaries from Braamfischerville said, she was deeply moved by the company’s gesture, as the food parcel will make a huge difference for her family who are already struggling to make ends meet. She was grateful to Joey and team for the gifts.

Peter Mhlongo, Braamfischerville block chairperson, also mentioned that “It is such a great honor for our needy people to continue receiving the type of support, especially amidst these difficult times that we find ourselves in”. With income lost and most businesses closed many have been forced to turn to charities for help.
