162.674 Meals

With your support and as part of the TOGETER FOR CAPE TOWN network we provided over 160.000 meals for the kids in our daycare centers and their families. While most people in South Africa suffered from the economic pressure during the lockdown 2020, we could cause a real difference that empowered the children and boosted their health.

Especially during the lockdown in South Africa our help was needed to provide a reliable nutrition foundation for the communities in Mfuleni. Our team handed out nutrition parcels to the 500 families of the kids in our Centers, which included rice, oil, dried fruits and canned food, which the families prepared and shared in their own homes.

After the re-opening of our partnering ECD Centers from October until end of 2020, Matchbox offered daily healthy meals to all children, which increased the health levels of the children significantly. Our chef Nasma Adams engaged with the local food habits of our children and created wonderful recepies that slowly but surely generated even young veggie fans .) Also parents and care givers were included in the process and gained much knowledge about health and nutrition through Matchbox workshops. They expressed their gratefulness for the valuable impulses.

A huge THANK YOU to all our supporters!
