COVID 19 RELIEF

FOOD RELIEF

The main focus of the Kolisi Foundation during this time is to providing sustainable food relief to South Africans, especially focusing on child-headed households, orphans and the vulnerable.

To respond to the increased levels of food insecurity, the Kolisi Foundation, Nelson Mandela Foundation & Imbumba Foundation have partnered on an initiative called #Each1Feed1. The initiative intends on supporting families for a minimum of 3 months to combat food insecurity during this time.

With partnerships the initiative is able to provide food for a family for a month at a cost of R600.

These food parcels include sanitizer and masks for the family.

WATER SUPPLY

The donation of boreholes as a means of increasing water supply in communities serve as a great relief as absent, inadequate, or inappropriately managed water expose individuals to preventable health risks.

The Kolisi Foundation, together with our partners, assisted the Makhado Village with a borehole to address the water shortage the community is facing.

“I thought I knew what struggle was until I went to Limpopo, seeing people without water, using water from the side of the road or that the animals are drinking from.” – Siya Kolisi

FRONT-LINE ASSISTANCE

We supply sanitiser and masks to frontline medical workers, but our main focus moved to filling empty stomachs.

The Kolisi Foundation was able to assist Livingston-, Khayelitsha-, Eerste River and Groote Schuur Hospital with a few essential items.

In total the following items were provided:
x5 000 litres Sanitizers
x4 000 FFP2 Certified Respirator Face-masks
x1 500 Visors
x1 000 Masks (for breastfeeding mothers in NICU)
