“We saw the poverty in Khayelitsha, especially in the informal settlements. We just decided we have to do something about it, even if it’s small…..even if it’s out of our own pockets”

Khayelitsha, which means New Home in isiXhosa, is a township allocated on the Cape Flats, and is a remnant of the atrocious Apartheid system. Not much has changed since, with residents walking up to 200 meters or further just to access water. The Meals on Wheels team based in Khayelitsha could not sit back and watch the tremendous poverty pervading the populace. The team estimate feeding approximately 30 000 people per month, and yet, this is not enough.
