Living Hope based in Capri, together with its 7 branches, has been extremely busy during the COVID-19 crisis which is both a hunger and health crisis.
While our other programmes such as the Farm, HIV testing, Home Based Care and the Health Care Centre continue to run as normal, we have also taken on door to door medication delivery around the South Peninsula of Cape Town (over 100 packages of Chronic Meds delivered daily to people’s doors) as well as front line COVID-19 screening in Masiphumelele together with Department of Health doctors doing the actual testing.
In addition Living Hope has developed a huge database of folk who live in Masiphumelele. We have been able to feed over 6735 families with food for about 10 days. This translates into feeding about 27,000 people for 10 days, which roughly equates to 270,000 main meals along with coffee and tea!
We can’t say thank you enough to the generosity of friends and donors of the Valley. The response has been overwhelming but the need is far greater. We simply can’t keep up with the requests for food.
