On behalf of I Care, I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for your kind donation of a Christmas Tree which you decorated with the children – much to their delight! THANK YOU too for bringing and sharing lunch with them! As you know boys are always hungry and food is a priority so they were absolutely thrilled.

It is through people like yourselves that donate to I Care and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate children in our society. We aim to provide a long-lasting, sustainable impact on their young lives. It is a huge task but not impossible.

A Big Thanks to Event World

"On behalf of Food Bank South Africa and the community we serve, we take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to Event World for giving us a chance to get involved in one of the biggest events in South Africa, the Vodacom Durban July! 

We received 410kgs of food from different suppliers, and pided the food between 4 0rganisations situated in Umlazi Township:

Vukani Community Project (1) was founded in August 2004 by Jabulile Khambule.  The project aims to provide a valuable service to community elders, physically and mentally disabled and vulnerable women and children (over 300 people) - their primary focus is home-based care.  Isiphiwo Community Project (2) is a community-based organization (CBO), operates as an independent entity, and serves as a platform to help men, women and children overcome social, political and economic obstacles facing the poor community in this country. They prepare meals three times a week to feed inpidual families (300 families) in the community of Umlazi.   Bambisandla Traumatised Children Centre (3)Gloria Shabalala is the founder of this centre; she has turned her home with her own resources into a shelter for traumatised children. Police and social workers drop off children with Gloria but provide no assistance. She currently looks after 35 children; her organisation is in a three year sustainable development program with Food Bank SA.  Maskey Home Base Care (4) - This organization provides care to the poor and vulnerable people suffering from cancer, TB, AIDS and other sicknesses. They have the capacity to help roughly 100 people.

Food Bank directly gives food support to more than 100 000 families nationwide, in Durban we have more than 10 000 families involved in our food support program - your support goes a long way in assisting to advance our program as we work to address food insecurity and malnutrition in the lives of ordinary citizens in this country.

Thank you for making a difference, we appreciate your amazing support!"
