We give you below some crisp insight into the overall activities of GO Siza-Isizwe over the past six months:
Plates of food served in our premises: 4519
Cans of coke handed out: 3000 (donated by Spar)
Dry soup distributed to camps for Xenophobia victims as well as in terms of our food distribution scheme to families: 96 kg
Food Parcels distributed to 11 families and other needy homes: 19.7 kg
This was measured only from March to June but for the six months obviously much more was handed out).
Sponsorship of Children
We have a small group of ladies doing knitting, beadwork as well as sewing and at the moment we are working on an order for 3500 items to be ready for Women’s Day. Consequently there is quite a lot of pressure on us to finish these items of beadwork timeously. Developments are otherwise relatively slow but we are confident, as we are exploring different avenues and means of promoting this, this part of our activities will expand over time.
During the past six months we counseled no fewer than 147 people on different issues and were also able to draw up 22 CVs for job seekers. Thanks
