GOD MADE A WAY WHERE THERE SEEMED TO BE NO WAY!
What do you do if you are a NPO/PBO with a passion to continue being Gods hands and feet during the nation- wide lock down? No one seemed to know really… Everyone refers to a permit and the bizportal, however our Soupkitchen is a NPO not a business enterprise. Everywhere you turn for advise, the advice is to follow the process, however there are NO agreed, communicated or published process. Instead of complaining about it, you stay on your knees and you pray about it. God made a way for us where there seemed to be no way. Our permit was approved yesterday and PRAISE GOD! We are able to continue to be God’s hands and feet in the midst of the storm…
At Fred an Martie’s Soup kitchen we aim to change the fact that charity is not about time, it is about eternity… Through your gesture of kindness you are enabling us to touch the lives of many vulnerable children and elderly folk in these most trying times. Former president Nelson Mandela once said “there can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children and most vulnerable. Serving the poor and the hungry is a lifelong commitment for Fred and Martie’s Soup Kitchen. We understand that we can give, we can help, we can care and most importantly, we can love on those that are in need. For 46 years, our goal has been to reach out to less fortunate children, elderly folk and the poor — men, women and children in an effort to address their current situation and meet their needs. Just an update for the past three weeks since the president’s first address of the nation –
- We continued feeding our children with take away meals until Thursday the 26th of March 2020 with nutritional meals to boost their immune system.
- We handed out oranges to all 302 children to with their meals and extra oranges to take home.
- We hosted educational sessions on the importance of washing their hands and social distancing as well as what the Corona Virus is in very simple terms.
- We handed out basic food items to our children.
It is through your love and kindness that we are able to be your hands and feet in this worthy community. If you want to get involved or support us in any way please contact Riaan 0827868517 or Yolindie 0828546904.
We are proud of this result. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our colleagues who made the impossible..possible!!
