The Big 5 Municipality Disaster Management Department named Star for Life as the best NGO working in schools and communities and we were happy to receive a grocery donation from Boxer Superstores, enough for twenty-five disadvantaged families around UMkhanyakude District, in South Africa.
Principals from Star for Life schools identified those families in most need and during the course of last week the Star for Life Wellness team delivered rice, beans, sugar, tinned fish, tinned beans and soap to all twenty-five families.
Star for Life’s own Dandelion project provides forty disadvantaged families with food parcels every month. These have been even more important during COVID-19 lockdown, as many families have had to stay at home, with no means to make ends meet. The lockdown has had a dramatic impact on children from low income/poverty-stricken households so we are extra grateful for this grocery donation.
A special thank you goes to @BoxerSuperstores Hluhluwe and Big 5 Municipality.
