The Kolisi Foundation in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation was hosted this afternoon, KwaMandela eQunu together with Kaizer Motaung and Old Mutual foundations to distribute much-needed food parcels to rural homesteads. The five Chiefs from Qunu, Mqhekezweni, Xhongorha, Cacadu and Matyenengqina, who have been identified will bring their people to the Mandela residence to receive the food parcels.
The COVID 19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc with the lives of ordinary citizens and more so those in rural areas. Unable to travel in search of work or to engage in other meaningful economic activities their prospects of survival looks bleak.
The government along with philanthropists like our hero Siya Kolisi and Kaizer Motaung have gone to great lengths to alleviate the plight of the poor and needy. We are pleased that households in Nkosi Dalibhunga’s Qunu homestead are able to benefit from these noble efforts. We applaud such noble efforts and hope that many others will rise to the task of emulating their sterling example.
There are many more rural families and households across the length and breadth of South Africa in need of assistance and aid. Food parcels provide much-needed relief at a time when rural families have very little else to rely upon.
“We urge our country’s entire population to continue to act in the national interests by practising good hygiene and adhering to the requirements for social distancing.
Together, we can beat the COVID 19 pandemic but we must work together to care for the most vulnerable and the rural poor and the needy. We thank the Kolisi Foundation, Nelson Mandela Foundation, Kaizer Motaung Foundation, Imbumba and Old Mutual Foundation for the excellent work that they are doing across the length and breadth of our land. “
