Nokuthula | 80 children
Nokuthula has an existing soup kitchen, support by the wonderful residents of the Ambers in Howick, where she feeds 15 children every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We have partnered with her in increasing the capacity to feed as well as the days she will be distributing food.
Ntuli Block, Rosetta
Nicky | 95 households, 40 children & 25 pensioners
Ntuli Block (a village made of wooden shacks) is an area with great need. Most of the families here live way below the bread line with little to no employment. The children attend Sibonokuhle School which is supported by the “friends of Sibonokuhle” and we are privileged to be able to support these children as part of our project.

Further up to the railway line are another few families (including vulnerable children) who are supported as part of the Rosetta Relief.
The Light House in association with Meals on Wheels, Bruntville Primary, ONE Life Foundation & Mooi River Farmers.
This feeding project currently feeds in excess of 850 children daily, from Monday to Friday. Some days (depending on donations) this may be as little as two spoons of food per child. We are acutely aware of the immense need in this area and the incredible people in this community who are trying to make it better. We have therefore decided to support this project with additional donations and pledges which come our way.
Assistance in this community came to us via concerned local residents, aware that both local schools were closed and meaning that a number of children may be food insecure. We are working with both school principals, local Mooi River farmers as well as local municipality to assist as best we can.
