In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, South Africa’s president, President Ramaphosa, recently declared a nationwide 21 Day Lockdown. Like many other countries, South Africa is practicing social distancing and doing their part to flatten the curve. In rural communities of South Africa, social distancing is even more important as there are high populations of those with compromised immune systems due to TB and HIV. Each week our team will be bringing food parcels to homes who are the most affected by the lockdown

The COVID-19 Pandemic

Last week, South Africa’s president, President Ramaphosa declared a nationwide 21 Day Lockdown. Schools, centers, and all nonessential businesses have been shut down. Like many other countries, including the U.S, South Africa is practicing social distancing and doing their part to flatten the curve.

In rural communities of South Africa, social distancing is even more important as there are high populations of those with compromised immune systems due to TB and HIV. During this lockdown, families are staying home, only going out for essential goods. Unfortunately for some, going to the store is a struggle. Children, elderly, and disabled are extremely vulnerable during this time as they have very little means to shop at a store and gather enough supplies to feed their families. In Acornhoek South Africa, there are many households being ran by children, older children caring for their siblings without any adult supervision. These children rely on the resources they receive in school and the daily meal served in class. With schools closed many children are struggling to get enough food.

In response to the lockdown, A Spring of Hope has shifted its focus to provide support to vulnerable families in the local communities. Each week our team will be bringing food parcels to homes who are the most affected by the lockdown including vulnerable children, the sick, the disabled, and the elderly. Our team has identified 79 homes in which will benefit from weekly parcels. These parcels will include vegetables from our community gardens and our Permaculture Center’s gardens, nonperishable foods (including pap (maize), beans, can goods), bread, soap, and water.

Trygive, Leanette, and Andrew are working extremely hard to ensure that their communities are staying safe, healthy, and fed. Please help us in supporting these families by donating to our Apart Together campaign. Any donation helps us in buying supplies such as pap (maize), beans, soap, and bread.

As we do what we can to stop the spread of this horrible virus by staying home and limiting contact with others, we also need to remember those that do not have the resources we have. We truly are all in this together.

Thank you for your continued support of A Spring of Hope!
