#SOAP4HOPE AND #EACH1FEED1
At the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Imbumba Foundation felt compelled to act in unity with government and other health care organisations, to help fight the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic, and its rapid spread across the globe.
Our #Soap4HOPE and #EACH1FEED1 programmes were launched in March 2020, to help address an immediate need for hand sanitation and hygiene, and to address the very real issue of food security in communities severely impacted by the lockdown restrictions, and resulting loss of income.
Corporate and private individuals donated over R 11 million to the #Soap4Hope and #Each1Feed1 campaigns. The programme reached the lives of approximately 7,785 families, and potentially impacted between 40,000 and 50,000 individuals, who were supported with handwash soap, (which ultimately plays a significant role in curbing the spread of the Corona virus) and food parcels, helping to alleviate hunger in our most vulnerable communities.
With South Africa now in the grips of a second wave and with loss of employment threatening more and more breadwinners every day, food security remains a very real challenge, especially amongst low-income households. We therefore aim to continue with the implementation of the #Each1Feed1 programme by delivering much needed basic food items to struggling families.
A standard hamper per family of 4 contains 12.5kg maize meal, 5kg rice, 2kg sugar, 4 cans each of baked beans, pilchards, mixed vegetables, 2.5l cooking oil, teabags, 2l anti-bacterial hand soap, 2l multi-purpose cleaner, 3 packs of sanitary pads.
AS PART OF OUR BACK-TO-SCHOOL CAMPAIGN PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SCHOOLS AND CLINICS WITH HAND SANITIZER, ANTI-BACTERIAL HAND SOAP, COVID-19 AWARENESS PAMPHETS, PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) AND BRANDED CLOTH MASKS.
