Invitation to Cover: Nelson Mandela Foundation Supports Youth and Children Centre Fight the Scourge of Food Insecurity
From: Nelson Mandela Foundation
Date of Publication: 12 October 2020
In support of its efforts to fight the scourge of food insecurity in vulnerable communities and schools, the Nelson Mandela Foundation in collaboration with AECI Limited, a South African chemicals group, would like to invite you to cover the #Each1Feed1 distribution at Ikageng Youth and Children Centre in Orlando West, Soweto.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect many vulnerable communities, food security remains an enormous threat to the lives and wellbeing of children across South Africa and the globe alike. One of the key challenges for vulnerable children in South Africa is being able to afford nutritious food. This becomes even more important for those children living with HIV and AIDS who are on Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART). Ikageng provides beneficiaries with nutritious food parcels on a monthly basis, and has helped to create and run numerous nutritional gardens so that families can produce the food they need for themselves.
Each1Feed1 is an emergency relief food delivery initiative that seeks to assist vulnerable communities across South Africa.
Date: Thursday, 15 October 2020 Location: 8299 Mahalefele & Sisulu Road, Orlando West, Soweto Time: 08h00
In response to the multiple challenges posed by COVID-19, Each1Feed1 has become a flagship project for the Foundation’s Mandela Day campaign. Supported by multiple institutional stakeholders and the public, its anchor partners are the Kolisi Foundation and the Imbumba Foundation.
Through the Each 1 Feed 1 program, the Nelson Mandela Foundation continues to unearth the real living condition of many vulnerable South Africans. These beneficiary stories deserve to be shared as they demonstrate the needs of the communities due to Covid-19.
Media are invited to join an activation which will also share a comprehensive update on the phase 2 of the campaign and the next phase in the project’s implementation.
