Sponsor a food voucher for a starving family
fter 6 weeks of Covid-19 lockdown, many poorer South Africans are on the verge of starvation. Those who used to earn a few rands selling fruit and vegetables at the taxi rank – or working as domestic servants and gardeners – have been left with nothing.
They are dependent on food parcels for survival.
But the delivery of government food parcels has been sporadic and inconsistent. So an ecumenical coalition of Churches under the auspices of the KwaZulu-Natal Christian Council is working together with NGOs and NPOs, including City Hope, Domino Foundation, Nation Changers, SA Red Cross and Zoe Life, to ensure help gets to those in desperate need.
And we’re asking for your help to make sure there are enough food parcels to go round.
Please consider reaching out to someone who’s suffering, by making a donation online now. Your gift will be turned into an SMS Food Voucher – redeemable at a range of local supermarkets – and delivered to ‘your’ beneficiary within 24 hours!
Imagine how it will feel to receive this loving gift from someone they don’t even know? I know you will be blessed with their heartfelt gratitude.
Each Food Voucher is worth R410 … about €/£20 or US$25 … and feeds a family of four for a week. But because the need is so great – and there are no signs of the lockdown ending any time soon – we hope you may be able to donate more than one voucher.
And when you do, please also remember to fill in your special intentions to be remembered at our Masses for Mission Friends.
Distance may prevent us from being neighbours in community or country – but we can still be neighbours in the spirit of Jesus Christ. May God bless you
