For these appeals we select impoverished communities who face a long, harsh winter and live in shacks that are battered by storms. These people fight pouring rain and floods and they are always cold and always hungry. A box of staples and a warm blanket brings amazing cheer and comfort to people whose lives are so bleak.
I’d like you to meet Anneline Louw, one of the many unsung heroines I meet doing my work here at Breadline Africa. She’s a Sunday-school teacher from the small town of Tulbagh in the Western Cape, famous for the beautiful mountains that surround it – which are covered with snow every winter.
This rural town is dependent on seasonal agriculture, and there is no money to spare in the winter – tummies are empty and bodies are chilled. This is where Anneline comes in – from the small kitchen of her humble home, she makes soup and other hot food to give to the little children who hang around the streets, desperate for a square meal. She even delivers food parcels to the elderly in their homes.
Anneline is doing wonderful work in feeding the hungry and vulnerable people of the small town of Tulbagh. By donating now you can help her to beat the misery of empty tummies by providing parcels of much-needed nourishment!
