Feeding the little ones

On Monday July 18, Nelson's Mandela's 93rd birthday, I Care and Foodbank along with volunteers from Execuline and Virgin Active Gateway met up at Bambisandle Primary in Kwa Mashu. The school is home to 700 children, 70% of whom live with HIV. The school is in an extremely poor area and the food prepared was possibly their only cooked meal in a week!
I Care and Foodbank supplied curry, rice and vegetables as well as a hamper for each child to take home. Virgin Active and Execuline donated juice for the children and spent a lot more than their suggested 67 minutes with us.
It was heartwarming to see the many grateful faces but also heartbreaking to know that they don't enjoy food regularly.
Well done to Lucia from I Care and Ntomby from Foodbank for championing the whole event.
