ROCKY PARK FARMS – Ugie, Eastern Cape

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the Fakade Foundation, owned by Sinelizwe Fakade’s family, set itself a mission to feed those unable to feed themselves. The Fakade Foundation bought food parcels for 20 families within the three communities surrounding Rocky Park Farm. The food parcels were stored at the local chief’s residence, showing that private stakeholders and traditional leaders can work together to achieve change. The chief said no commercial farmer had made such a contribution during the 15 years that his family had held the position. Fakade has committed to continuing to support the community in future.

THE NOHARI FAMILY – Tongaat, KwZulu-Natal

Wela distributed food parcels to 100 people of Madobi village. These food parcels contained: 10kg sweet potatoes, hubbard squash, gem squash, tomatoes, spinach, beetroot and soup. The value of this contribution was R52 673.46.
