Contact your local soup kitchen

Find out what assistance they need to stay open and running. Soup kitchens that you can get in touch with include:

  • ladles of love (CPT)
  • Missionsville (EASTENCAPE)
  • Foodfor life-(KZN, GAUTENG, MPUMALANGA,WESTERN CAPE)

Continue to pay domestics and gardeners

Pay employees even if you are not using their services, as not doing so will leave many people in difficult situations, unable to manage the lock down.

Support homeless people during lock down
