#ActforChange Food Buckets Give Carers Freedom, More Time For Children

May 3, 2017

Orlando and Eyethu Children's Homes in Soweto each received 200 Shoprite #ActForChange buckets filled with non-perishable food.

This donation is aligned to Shoprite’s commitment to addressing the food security challenges faced by many South Africans.

The buckets are filled with goods such as pilchards, samp, beans, rooibos tea, rice and many more nutritious food items.

This donation will be used to make wholesome meals for the children, allowing the women who run these two organisations to focus their time and energy on offering the children the necessary support and care.

The carers at Eyethu Centre play guessing games with the children on the day they receive the #ActForChange buckets.

Hunger relief is an ongoing priority for Shoprite, and this is the first of many handovers that we will be doing over the coming winter months.
