Nelson Mandela Day Fundraiser – Join the action!

Lungisa Haai, also known as ‘Mama Lungi’, left her full-time job and started the Siphekela-Isizwe Feeding Scheme, which runs five community kitchens in Gugulethu, Summer Greens, Khayelitsha, Dunoon and Joe Slovo. The Kolisi Foundation has been supporting and journeying with Lungisa since May 2020, seeing her kitchen grow from supporting 150 children and elders to more than 1000 daily. Her operation is no longer feasible without a vehicle upgrade to enable basic transportation of goods to and from the kitchens.

“It’s not just about feeding; we also need to empower [children].” – Lungisa. Beyond providing food support through her community kitchens, Lungisa also runs empowerment programmes and organises weekly sporting practices for the children of the communities she serves. Her community kitchens are safe and welcoming spaces for the children. And to us, Lungisa is a true community builder and leader.

We are rallying partners/donors/sponsors to join us on our mission to purchase a new bakkie for Lungisa’s community kitchens this #MandelaDay2022. The campaign will run from Friday, 8th of July until 31st July. You can get involved in your capacity or as an organisation.  In the spirit of Mandela Day, Freedom of Movement will kickstart the fundraising with an R50,000 donation to the project and will also match every donation made by our customers through the FOM platform. We challenge other proudly South African brands to join in on the movement.
