COVID-19 RESPONSE TO DATE
FOOD COLLECTED & DISTRIBUTED
FOOD PARCELS DISTRIBUTED
We are extremely grateful to the 606 private donors who have provided R 2 060 000 to Stellenbosch Unite.
Stellenbosch needs your critical support
#StellenboschUnite is a collaborative aid action purposed to provide social support to vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 pandemic. The collaboration brings together Stellenbosch Municipality, Stellenbosch University, Visit Stellenbosch (civil society), SCAN (Stellenbosch Civil Advocacy Network, representing the non-profit sector) and the Greater Stellenbosch Development Trust (administrators).
As a first priority we will supply weekly food packages to identified vulnerable families. Once this is established, we will start mobilising to be in a position to offer further aid that might be needed if the pandemic deteriorates. This is an unprecedented situation requiring readiness and responsiveness. We are calling on Stellenbosch to unite and to help us to ensure that no one in our town has to face starvation.
How it works
SCAN is the NGO partner of Stellenbosch Unite
Food parcels are centrally assembled and distributed through a network of NPO’s, community leaders, churches and volunteers to vulnerable families, identified through these networks.
The Stellenbosch Civil Advocacy Network (SCAN) distributes food parcels to existing vulnerable beneficiaries of its member organisations in the NGO sector. These vulnerable families were supported by the NGO’s prior to Covid-19, and now also receive food support either funded by the NGO sector themselves, SCAN or Stellenbosch Unite.
