Robyn Gruijters wote: It has been 10 long weeks since we began our food relief program to assist the children and vulnerable in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and rural areas.

From the announcement of school closures on Sunday 15 March 2020, our mission has grown in passion and reach and we have been able to assist thousands of children and their respective families through the generosity of many communities members, local businesses and farmers.

To date, we have dished up over 22 000 meals, distributed more than 2 600 food parcels, 1 800 bags of fortified porridge, 260 much-needed toiletry packs (including soap, face cloths, toothpaste, toothbrushes and sanitary towels) and distributed over 2000 fabric face masks to our little superheroes. 

Our support has extended to educational resources for rural schools, sanitiser and masks for those prepping to re-open as well as an extensive blanket and winter clothing drive.

We believe in the holistic well being of these children. That beyond their nutrition there is support to be offered in terms of their education and emotional/mental well being. How else do we positively impact their futures? 

And so friends, there will continue to be work that needs to be done and we would love to have you along! Please consider getting involved, partnering with us and finding out how you can contribute to the vision we have for our Midlands children.
