Our school uniform project, in conjunction with BB Bakeries Durban, has come to an end, and in true BB Style⭐️

We are super excited to share some indelible moments with you, so please take a minute to watch our video featuring Trubel Primary (KZN). We will be sharing more joy in a forthcoming post, featuring Sandfields Primary (KZN).

Parents of 100 deserving children at Trubel Primary School have been gifted some financial relief by the awesome team at BB Bakeries Durban. Each child received a uniform kit:
⭐️school bag, a uniform set, and school shoes⭐️

The entire school was treated to an afternoon of fun: music; dancing; prizes for the spunky kids who showed off their dance moves; some inspirational words from the BB Bakeries team. BB gave not just the 100 children a reason to smile BUT all the children attending school that day, and every staff member, maintenance, and security personnel. Everyone present got to take home a loaf of freshly-baked BB bread.

WCMA is privileged to be an NPO partner to the wonderful teams at BB Bakeries and Premier FMCG.

As promised, we would be sharing with you, our project work in conjunction with BB Bakeries Durban.

Thank you to the awesome teams at BB Bakeries Durban and Pinetown, for lending a helping hand to struggling parents, and for gifting deserving children a sense of pride and a ray of hope.

As part of our primary school project, aimed at providing a measure of financial relief to parents, the BB Bakeries teams of Durban and Pinetown, worked in solidarity to provide 50 primary school learners from Ramatha Road Primary School (PMB) a uniform kit:
⭐️school bag, a uniform set, and school shoes⭐️

When BB Bakeries arrive, they do so IN STYLE. The entire school was treated to a morning of fun: music; dancing; prizes for the spunky kids who showed off their dance moves; some inspirational words from the BB Bakeries teams and WCMA. It doesn’t end there because BB Bakeries includes everyone. Every staff member, maintenance, and security personnel took home a loaf of freshly-baked BB bread.

Thank you to the dedicated and passionate principal, Mrs CA Govender, for receiving WCMA and the BB Bakeries teams with such love and grace.

Giving #hope this Diwali…

On 17th October, we posted about our collaboration with the Viraag Hansrajh Foundation. When we distributed fortified porridge to the beneficiary households, we knew that they needed our support to fill the gap. And we are acting on this. Our story to follow next week.

These families are battling poverty, and they take on the added responsibility of caring for their unemployed children and their grandchildren. With the food poverty line measured at R624 per person, per household, it is quite clear that social grants fall short of meeting basic needs.

20 families from this group of 65 beneficiaries were expecting to have a bleak Diwali. In a time when there is a prevailing sense of hopelessness for so many, this auspicious day of Diwali should never lose its symbolism of hope, love and light in our hearts. To keep this light burning, We Care Mother Africa distributed food hampers to these families.

Our heartfelt thanks to our sister, Ayesha and our friend, I.N for their sponsorship of hampers.

Hampers packed with love and hope:
❤️Rice; Fortified Porridge; Speckled Beans; Pea Dholl; Cake Flour; Sunflower Oil; Salt; Sugar; Tea; Curry Powder

Fighting #hunger, ONE MEAL at a time!!!

We Care Mother Africa recently partnered with our friends at the OThongathi Outreach Foundation, to sponsor a hearty and nutritious meal for 400 vulnerable people in various parts of Tongaat.

This incredible foundation works tirelessly to support hundreds of households battling food poverty. Their meals are made possible by the generosity of the community and sponsors. Their efforts result in a minimum of 400 people receiving a hot, nutritious, vegetarian meal every Sunday.

Sadly, there are a growing number of households that cannot afford to meet minimum monthly food requirements. With your help, this Foundation can ensure that they reach a greater number of vulnerable households.

The Foundation’s members all offer their time on a voluntary basis. Their dedication to community service is admirable. Please reach out to WCMA or the Othongathi Outreach Foundation if you would like to sponsor a meal.

The delicious curry and rice pictured costs R5 a meal, and all because funds are used solely to procure food. Meal preparation, transport and distribution are covered by the dedicated team at the Othongathi Outreach Foundation.

💖No girl left behind💖

In July, Ms Shraddha Hanuman set out to raise awareness of the plight of schoolgirls stemming from a lack of access to sanitary towels. She aimed to secure a year’s supply of sanitary pads for the awesome girls attending Vn Naik School for the Deaf and Arthur Blaxall School for the blind. These remarkable girls, because of their visual and hearing impairments, have to work even harder to make their dreams a reality. The Covid pandemic has severely impacted livelihoods of families, invariably affecting the lived experiences of the girls.

WCMA is elated to have been a part of Shraddha’s campaign through our contribution of 396 packs of sanitary pads, in August. This month, Shraddha distributed an incredible 9 month supply to 195 young ladies🌟.

WCMA thanks our friend I.N. for another impactful donation, rooted in love💖

💚Partnering for Good💚

We were recently gifted lovely warm essentials for 40 of our elderly beneficiaries and vulnerable mothers from the impoverished settlement of Bhambayi (Phoenix).

Our heartfelt thanks to the Viraag Hansrajh Foundation, for their generous donation of blankets, hats and gloves. WCMA added 40 nutritious bags of e'Pap fortified porridge.

This group of beneficiaries are battling poverty, and they take on the added responsibility of caring for their unemployed children and their grandchildren. With the food poverty line measured at R624 per person, per household, it is quite clear that an old age pension and/or child support grants still fall short of meeting basic needs.

It was incredibly humbling to receive so much love and appreciation for our modest donation. We can only do more to help restore dignity in the lives of these most deserving people.

A little background on our friends at the Viraag Hansrajh Foundation (VHF):
VHF is a registered Non-Profit Company, established in 2020 in loving memory of a young man who touched the lives of many. Viraag passed away only a few hours after celebrating his 26th birthday. VHF continues to work to support all the causes that were special to Viraag, to continue his legacy. Outreach initiatives are centred on helping the underprivileged, tackling local media issues, and providing lifesaving services to animals. To view their work, visit their Facebook/Instagram pages.
