Residents of Sunny South Village, near Kidd’s Beach received a generous donation of 100 food parcels recently, courtesy of Sundale Dairy.
Sundale joined forces with Ward 31 councillor Sindile Toni and Congress of Traditional Leaders of SA (Contralesa) BCM branch chairperson chief Mthuthuzeli Makinana to identify families most in need.
“We remain resolute in our commitment to support our vulnerable communities.
“We receive daily requests for assistance and the challenge is to ensure that any donations made are actually received by the intended recipients,” Sundale spokesperson Lynette Howe said.
Howe said that while the ongoing lockdown had placed strain on companies across the country, Sundale was still committed to helping local communities where it could.
For example, they company has offered to deliver R300 dairy boxes to customers which include milk, maas, yogurt and more.
“We are mindful that health and wellness is critical at this time and because fresh dairy packs a nutritious punch and aids gut health, it will go some way to contributing not only to hunger relief, but also to boosting wellness,” said Howe.
Chief Makinana thanked Sundale for helping communities in need, and for rescuing “the beneficiaries from an acute state of hunger”.
