Our Club was very fortunate to be given the opportunity of collecting 210 kgs of non perishable foods from Curves of Claremont. Together with a friend we reweighed and repackaged the bulk products and were able to distribute 25 nourishing food parcels.
Three went to the Malacit Home, two with 2 months supply of ePap went to a desperate family from Rwanda whose daughter required a further major heart operation but only after she regained weight, and the social worker says a great improvement. Two went to a Zimbabwe family with four children where the mother had taken very ill and the father without work. Two went to the Cottage Garden, one to Claremont night shelter and the balance to Dorothy in Ravensmead who feeds 60 children and 120 adults with her soup kitchen which she runs 3 days a week.
This project started by Curves has now been taken up by the residents of Pinewood Village, because I asked nicely. The food from the village will be collected over three months and donated to desperate and starving families in Brooklyn Communicare flat.
