Community spirit in lockdown times

The staff of one of the ‘soup kitchens’ in Nuwerus, a ‘suburb’ of Napier in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, South Africa.

28 Volunteers with a multicultural background are engaged in feeding about 500 of the poorest people in our village.

They all are very grateful for donations from private people, businesses and the farming community of Napier.

  1. You’ve really captured the community spirit here. Today i signed a petition “Hands off the soup Kitchens” which the government want to shut down and control food distribution through their centralised system. Huge outcry!

    1. Same here! But private initiative carried by people with a multicultural background brings movement. The local municipality recently objected a plan to create community veggie gardens. But a beginning is made; seedlings donated by many, etc.
