In Edition 161 of GPS News, we reported on the initiatives of “a crew of six people are supporting “those people who have been overlooked by the government and have no income due to Covid-19.”
“There are 6 of us in our crew. Ken Robinson, Bridget Robinson, Debbie Oliver, Peter Siviter, Merle Siviter and me (Kirsti Siviter). We currently have 25 families (50 people) that we supply with food parcels,” Kirsti said.
This crew of six is still feeding those families: “On Wednesday afternoon from 4 pm everyone picks up, I can’t deliver due to financial constraints,” Kirsti said. “We have some sponsors and I want to thank all of them. Agnes, manager at Checkers Hazyview has also been helping. Thank you, Agnes, for your dedicated sponsorship in helping us feed the people that so desperately need the help.”
“We make up a food parcel once a week and the people come to collect it from me. What we need is basic things like stamp and beans, rice, maize rice, mealie meal, milk, bread, soy mince, soup ingredients, meat, any staple and non-perishable food that we can add to the parcels. Any help is appreciated,” Kirsti said.
