Covid-19 Pandemic Relief Response
Covid-19 Pandemic Emergency Aid
HEF responded immediately to assist in helping those who did not have the means to help themselves during the country lock down announced in April 2020.
Areas of operation:
Gauteng: Newclare, West Rand and Rand West. North West: Bapong and surrounding rural villages up to Uitkyk. Western Province: Elsies River and Bloekombos.
Assistance was provided for the poor, single mothers and widows with children, orphans and the aged who live in impoverished communities.
In 2020, with the help of partners and donations, HEF provided over 85 tons of maize meal, 7,500 food hampers, 9,000 hand sanitisers, 125,800 hot meals, 6 tons of blankets and clothes. Our “Grow your own food” program was launched during the lockdown period by planting over 1,000 organic vegetable gardens reaping 100 tons of vegetables which created a constant supply of food for impoverished communities.
