Moni and Felix Spreiter from the town of Flims in Switzerland have generously sponsored 4000 books and Covid-19 handouts for our South African Heroes!

They have selected a number of recipients from our list of organisations.

Thank you!

Levita’s feeding scheme

Levita Mcgregor runs a community feeding scheme on the Cape Flats. She and her team work selflessly to ensure that hundreds of children receive a wholesome meal and Covid-19 information. Some of the Spreiter’s books and infographics were handed out to the children of Kampies – a City of Cape Town-run emergency housing site based in Philippi.

Maliyah Solomons – The Voice of the Voiceless Tafelsig

I would like to greatly thank Hero In My Hood for providing over 150 children with coloring books as well as posters. It was an absolute huge hit at our Childrens Christmas Lunch in December. 

We live in an underprivileged community where many families live well below the breadline. Christmas to many is non existent as families simply cannot afford the luxury of a Christmas meal, let alone new clothes or Christmas presents.  Our team at The Voice of the Voiceless Tafelsig decided to host our kiddies Christmas lunch and it was a huge success. Because of your lovely donation of coloring books and posters each child walked away with not only a lovely warm meal, meeting Santa Claus but also a lovely gift packet  which would not have been complete without your generous donation. The kids were in absolute awe and the educational posters were a hit, not only educating the kids about Corona Virus but their parents as well.

Pictures will follow. Apologies for the delay as I am having difficulty having the pictures exported from my Digital Camera. 

Thank you once again.
