FoodforLove 2021: Report on Food relief in Greater Hermanus

Final Report

In late March 2020 South Africa, with its multiple socio-economic challenges, faced a new disaster in the form of the Covid19 pandemic. President Cyril Ramaphosa invoked the Disaster Management Act (DMA) of 2002 which defines disaster as a progressive or sudden widespread or localised, natural or human-caused occurrence which causes or threatens to cause disruption of the life of a community; and is of a magnitude that exceeds the ability of those affected by the disaster to cope with its effects using only their own resources (shortened for relevance).

We respond to funding requests for amounts of up to R30,000 for one-off needs and projects with a focus upon health or social hardship, and we encourage organisations to submit their project proposals to us.
