The Covid-19 lockdowns has unleashed a range of unintended consequences particularly concerning food security in SA. People’s livelihoods have been disrupted, leaving those living from hand to mouth unable to feed themselves or their families. Government school feeding schemes were stopped, leaving 9 million children without a daily meal – sometimes their only meal that they get.

Boikanyo the Dion Herson Foundation has partnered up with NGOs and corporates in our ‘Save a Soul’ Project in which we sent e’Pap (high energy porridge which contains so much of the daily nutritional requirement) to deep rural communities whose nutritional needs have been largely ignored. We have prioritised child and grandmother headed households, and those without SA birth certificates. To date we have sent out enough e’Pap to sustain more than 62 000 children under the age of 6 countrywide, each for 30 days. In addition we provided other forms of humanitarian relief. 

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
