I live in Fish Hoek in the South of Cape Town. The coronavirus crisis is hitting the poorest communities in South Africa hard and it is going to be a very tough winter for many to survive.

Our local musician Jeremy Loops created an amazing initiative to help these vulnerable communities. Here more information about it, in his own words:

I’m so excited to finally announce The Big Food Drive, our plan to initially provide 10,000 meals to poor South Africans who have been pushed to desperation due to coronavirus-related lockdown. Most of you know this has been on my mind for some time now and I’ve dedicated all JL resources over the last few weeks to make a difference in this area. Our neighbours are starving and I believe this community is powerful enough to make a significant difference in people’s lives.

If you’re moved to donate, I would inspire you to do so. Every penny helps. I would also encourage everyone, whether you can contribute or not, to help us spread this message far and wide! Tag in your 10 closest friends or anyone you think this message will resonate with. Your parents, your grandparents. Share this post by WhatsApp, by email, by text. You can even do the unthinkable and phone people to tell them about this 😂.

If I’ve ever been able motivate you to do anything, let this be the moment I ask you to mobilise big time. This first moment, this impact moment, can shape the trajectory of this whole campaign, and for any of it to succeed, we need people power. Okay, go!

If you have any questions, feel free to hit me in the comments. Otherwise, hit the lin below to go donate! Thank you everyone. This could truly change people’s lives.
