We are better together
Story by Community Chest of the Western Cape
In 2020, South Africa was ravaged by COVID-19 - this only added to the country's prevailing issues like poverty and hunger. Yet, it was through this that South Africa saw the power of humanity.
One of the many organizations that showed up was Community Chest of the Western Cape. They rallied together to support families, schools during this extremely difficult period. Over the past three months, together with Community Chest and other partner organizations, B1G1 has helped to give more than 70 food relief boxes and trauma and disaster relief kits across the Western Cape.These kits included much-needed hygiene and PPE products, bedding, beds, and food to the affected communities.
We may not be able to travel to support our friends from around the world for now, but we can continue to support the work of those who directly serve on the ground. Let's keep on moving forward! Read more to see how you can do so.
Thank you for playing your part in moulding a better and equal world for our future generations. Let's continue to build bridges and uplift one another in love.
