The Cape Flats (Western Cape) is an expansive landscape, riddled with high levels of unemployment, poverty and gang violence. The Cape Flats is also home to angels who work tirelessly to serve the downtrodden; who empower women, men and children to improve their standard of living, and fight for their right to live safely and with dignity. One such group of angels is the New World Foundation (NWF), serving the community of Lavender Hill (Cape Flats), an organisation that We Care Mother Africa is honoured to be working and serving with.
Since the onset of COVID-19, NWF has been working around the clock to address the burning issue of widespread hunger. This week we provided NWF’s network of community kitchens with essential staples to enable them to continue their work. We would like to honour the many heroes that are serving the impoverished families of Lavender Hill through their various contributions:
**Our colleagues at NWF, Kim Pillay and Malany October.
**Executive Chef, Chad Blows and Sous Chef, Julian Adams from Two Oceans Restaurant | Cape Point who are cooking at the NWF kitchen during the lockdown.
**The ECDs that have committed to feeding not only the children but their families too – Sunrise Educare (Vrygrond); Village Heights Community Centre; and Charmane Joseph.
**A family in Seawinds that feeds their community. Thank you for your service, Alicia.
** Ellen Pakkies Foundation that receives cooked food from NWF for the community.
Our biggest THANK YOU goes to two brothers, Dr Sudeshen Naidoo (Sandton Oncology Centre) and Mr Prean Pather (Norsaf Marine), with hearts of gold, for making this project possible through their generous donation. Thank you for sharing our vision and for giving off your resources.
