South Africa: COVID-19 Food Parcels

“We didn’t know what we would eat tonight. We are grateful.”

These were the words a mother spoke as a food parcel was set at her door. While making deliveries, we saw and heard firsthand the struggles that families are facing right now. Many have lost their sources of income during the country-wide lockdown, which makes keeping food on the table a struggle. Right now, a simple box of food can make a world of difference.

And the impact reaches far beyond nutrition. One woman shared, “God has remembered even those who have forgotten about Him.” These packages serve as a tangible reminder that they are loved and that there is hope.

Today your generosity provided 27 food parcels to families in our community, many of which were the families of children who attend our after school programs. Thank you for helping families in need during this difficult time!
