PSFA feeds impoverished families in Zoar, Klein Karoo

Posted on July 20th, 2020 by Charles Grey

Mandela Day 2020, the PSFA staff travelled to an impoverished town in the Klein Karoo called Zoar, with our main aim being to prepare and serve meals to over 1000 people. On arrival at the St Agnus Anglican Church Hall in Zoar, the PSFA staff immediately started cooking a nutritious luncheon that consisted of curry soya mince, rice, butternut and carrots. While the food was being prepared, our director, Petrina Pakoe, financial manager, Morne Goosen, logistics manager, Tanith Hamman and fundraising manager, Charles Grey together with staff from HOPE Africa, the social development programme of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, visited Zoar EC Primary and Amelienstein LB Primary to hand out educational packs, party packets, bottles of hand sanitizer, masks, shoes and socks to the learners at these schools.

When the team arrived back at the church hall, hundreds of hungry people from near and far were lined up in front of the church hall, waiting in anticipation for their meals. We started serving lunch and handing out food parcels, hygiene packs and party packs to families from 12:30pm. We ended up feeding over 1 250 people. PSFA wishes to take this opportunity to thank Sneaker LAB and Selwyn and Glenda Atlas for the financial donations that were allocated to this activity, Andrew and Penny Hillock at Mymering Guest and Wine Farm for the special rates for our staff accommodation, Kevin Lodge from Top Events SA for the body lotions that were included in the hygiene packs and last but not least, Rev, Piet Minnaar and his team at St Agnus Anglican Church in Zoar for all their invaluable assistance on the day.
