Soup kitchen needs support

Members of the Site B soup kitchen are in need of help.

Whether it’s crime or poverty, members of the Site B’s Zero Crime Neighbourhood Watch are ready to fight it.

The group in LT Section has been conducting night patrols to combat crime in the area but has since stopped due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

Bangile Thukuthezi said they started Masiphathisane Soup Kitchen in September 2020 after noticing that many people in the area were starving.

“The impact of Covid-19 lockdown is visible, children are playing in streets on hungry stomachs while their parents are out jobs,” said Mr Thukuthezi.

He said they are now feeding people three times a week from their own pockets and donations from kind-hearted businesses in the area.

“We are a registered non-profit organisation and we are looking for more support to sustain this project,” he said.

If you would like to help, call Mr Thukuthezi on 076 887 9775.

Zero Crime Neighbourhood Watch volunteers are now running a soup kitchen.
