Another successful distribution this month. Thank You to the awesome team from Zimbali Charity Fund, and generous donors⭐️

We were on our way to Tongaat, expecting 100 beneficiaries to come in groups of 30-35. We ended up welcoming a first group of 60 people. Families were so happy with their first food parcels received in March, that they arrived earlier than expected.

Our biggest take-away, once again, was that our food parcels HELPED TO FILL GAPS, lasting families anywhere from 3-4 weeks. Most importantly, families DID NOT GO TO BED HUNGRY!!!

❤️In the absence of an UBER income, Mrs N’s family continues to survive on a part time job (2 days a week), and 3 CSGs. Having received our food parcel, Mrs N did not have to stress about giving their 5 children daily meals.

❤️Our food parcel helped Mrs G spend the little income set aside for food on other essential groceries, and the parcel lasted the family a month.

❤️Ms M continues to rely on her daughter’s income and 2 CSGs. The bulk of food items her family a month.

❤️Miss N, a retrenched forklift driver, recently found a casual job, working 1-2 days a week. She and her brother were very happy with their food parcel which lasted them two and a half weeks, whilst they had sufficient maize meal for the month.

❤️Ms T continues to support her household of 8 with R1000 a month, plus 3 CSGs. Our food parcel, helped her feed her children every day. She was so happy to be able to give her children maize porridge every day.

❤️Mrs P’s family continues to rely on income from casual jobs, and her modest veggie garden. Our food parcel helped the family significantly, lasting them nearly 3 weeks.

Introducing our #ECD Protein Program Partnership (KZN)🌟

WCMA has partnered with Singakwenza to enhance the development of preschoolers attending 12 early childhood development centres in KZN. Our partner supports a network of 19 ECDs by training educators to stimulate their children viz. learn through play, and providing the ECDs with creative, essential learning material.

It is well documented that early investment (learning inputs, nutrition, a nurturing environment), in children (0-6 years) reaps far greater rewards for them as they progress in life.

WCMA, through the love and generosity of our supporters, has secured a 3 month supply of peanut butter (100kg) for 12 ECDs.

Each morning, these children that come from very deprived homes, are given a teaspoon of peanut butter, proven to be an excellent source of energy, protein and fat, enabling them to gain maximum benefit from their fun and stimulating school day.

Thank you
❤️Mr RG Angamuthoo
❤️Ms L Gessen
❤️Mrs S Hariparsad
❤️Mr P Maistry
❤️Mr/s L & A Pather

We will be presenting all these wonderful ECDs to you in the weeks to follow.

If you would like to contribute to this project ensuring that it is extended to the end of the year, please contact us

WCMA has completed the second month of 212 food parcel distributions, thanks to the tremendous fundraising efforts of Zimbali Charity Fund (ZCF), and the generosity of donors.

Our first stop was Nkobongo where 56 beneficiaries would come in two groups in adherence to social distancing protocols. Two ZCF committee members - the nimble Vaughn and the ever-pleasant Penny – joined us. The air was filled with excitement. We were greeted with warm smiles, and beneficiaries were eager to tell us how they were coping since our last distribution. Our biggest take-away was that our food parcels HELPED TO FILL GAPS, and that the families DID NOT GO TO BED HUNGRY!!!

Here’s what some of the beneficiaries had to say:
*Since losing her job as a part-time gardener at one of the Durban hotels, Ms M and her children continue to rely on child support grants (CSG) and her eldest daughter’s nominal income. After paying essential living expenses, there’s never enough money to secure sufficient food for a whole month. Our food parcel changed that for the family in March.

*Ms G who lost her job in the construction industry, remains without a job. Prior to receiving our food parcels, the CSGs she received would be spent primarily on rent, water, and electricity, leaving very little money for food. Some days were so tough that she would approach the Resource Centre requesting bread rolls so that her children had something to eat. The food parcel provided this small family with a meal every day, when combined with the little money Ms G sets aside for food.

*Our food parcel brought much relief to Miss M and her extended family of 6. She is still without work, so it was a huge relief to receive our food parcel which lasted her family 2 weeks.

*Ms H has not been able to find a job as a domestic worker. Her household continues to rely on 2 CSGs. She still awaits news from Home Affairs on a birth certificate for her third child so that she can apply for a CSG. Our food parcel helped her to feed her family sufficiently, for 2 weeks because there is not much money left after paying off all essential expenses.

*Ms N has not been able to find work, and her daughter, M, who collected our food parcel in March, has not been called back to resume work as a bartender in the hospitality industry. Until such time, the family’s income remains 2 CSGs. Our food parcel lasted the family 2 weeks, with mum being able to sustain her family for a month, in that she spent some of the grant money on other food items. Even in times where there was no money for prepaid electricity, Ms N would prepare food on an open fire.
