Church soup kitchen gets boost

February is the month of love and this was demonstrated through a loving act of generosity from two businesses who donated groceries towards the Calvary Way Ministries soup kitchen operated in King William’s Town at the weekend.

Kwa Kokoyi Supersave and Ekhaya Build each gave R1,000 for groceries and handed it to Calvary Way Ministries leader John Brown and his wife Linda.

Brown said Ekhaya Build owner Johan Holl told him how he wanted to become involved in changing the lives of children by contributing to their church’s soup kitchen.

“Holl said that he is aware how we strive in helping children and wanted to assist in making them happy,” Brown said. Kwa Kokoyi owner Errol Durrheim shared Holl’s sentiments and said the project forms part of his business’ social responsibility programme.

Brown said the contribution will assist their soup kitchen tremendously and told the GO! they will expand the project to other communities.

“The church has decided to run their soup kitchen on Saturday afternoons in Breidbach but will also now rotate it to areas such as Sweetwaters and Ginsberg.”

He thanked the two businesses for the contribution.
