Update: Distribution of Municipal Food Relief Parcels

  • Distribution of the Municipal food parcels will continue tomorrow (Friday, 24 April 2020).

  • The distribution will take place in all 13 wards, equally.

  • The distribution will continue for next few days as we receive the food parcels from service providers.

  • About 11 000 applications were received. Not all applicants will receive the relief due to the limited funding.

  • Applications are verified and distribution will take place in accordance with approved applications.

  • Sassa, Department of Social Development (DSD) and other roleplayers also distribute their own food parcels in conjunction with the Municipality.

  • The same data base is used by the institutions to prevent double-dipping.

  • We appeal to the community not to prevent the organisations from distributing food to the most vulnerable.

  • We appeal people to share, with the needy, applying the principle of ubuntu.
