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.

The Need

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing unprecedented social distress in vulnerable communities, and we are asking Stellenbosch to unite. The sudden loss of income caused by the lockdown is rapidly eroding food security and we are calling on everyone to help us to alleviate social suffering in our town.

The Target

A basic provision food parcel for a family of four people will be supplied to minimum 3 300 homes per week.
We require at least R265 000 per week to fund these efforts.

Food parcel

A food parcel consists of:
1 kg Maize Meal

1 kg Rice
500g Soup Mix
2 x Packets Soup Powder
500g Dry Beans
500g Samp
1 x Tin of Baked Beans
750ml Cooking Oil

125g Sunlight Laundry Soap
1 bar Sunlight Laundry Soap

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.
