On behalf of Emthonjeni and the community I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the immunity packs you donated. After receiving the immunity packs we received positive feedback from the people who received this packs. In about a week the seniors who started drinking they came back to Emthonjeni and asked where they can get the immunity packs. I asked them why and they said that they feel so well and know it’s because of the immunity packs.
Note the attached photos are taken when we sponsored another 100 of the Immunity Packs after the seniors feedback.
This is an annual feeding scheme project at the Lerato Educational Centre in Jackson Drift, Eikenhof South of Johannesburg, which has now changed to Siyaphambili Day Care and Pre-school.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and financial constrains there are only 150 children with a total of 22 teachers. The school depends on donations and veggies received and cooks daily on the premises for the children.
Volunteers from the Art of Living in Lenasia sponsored groceries and vegetables and was dropped off today in conjunction to celebrate Gurudev’s Birthday at the school. A total of 300 masks was also donated.
A warm and hearty Thank you to all for your generous sponsorship and support of the groceries & vegetables. Through your donation we have once again been able to accomplish our Feeding Project and are extremely grateful!

The vegetable seedlings are growing beautifully and new seedlings for cabbage, kale, turnip and broccoli are being planted.
The Obs Pasta Kitchen would like to say a BIG thank you to the IAHV and the Stand for Humanity project for sending us 100 immunity packs to hand out to our community. These were distributed as follows:
Obs Pasta Kitchen beneficiaries received 63 packs
Streetscapes beneficiaries in Observatory received 15 packs
Streetscapes beneficiaries in Kuils River received 14 packs
Streetscapes beneficiaries in Cape Town CBD received 8 packs
Everyone was incredibly grateful to receive this healthy gift of 1000mg vitamin C effervescent tablets, and turmeric and ginger masala tea.
Obs Pasta Kitchen has been working with the Streetscapes house in Observatory and its sister locations mentioned above. These are houses that have been set up in different areas around Cape Town to home the formerly homeless and provide employment in the form of organic vegetable gardening and cleaning. Obs Pasta Kitchen’s dream was to assist the homeless with shelter and the Streetscapes partnership has made it come true.
Thanks again for your support !
Our volunteers of the James House Child & Youth Care in Cape Town for Mandela Day in 2020 raised funds and donated food parcels to families in Vredendal.
