PROJECT HOPE CAMPAIGN
Recent statistics show that over 300 000 people go hungry in our city every month, the majority being children. School attendance is affected as children are merely too hungry to concentrate and thus stay home to hustle for food. Township play schools are well familiar with toddlers being dropped off with no lunch nor snack for the day and most are malnourished and living in extreme poverty.
In 2017 The Herald reported that throughout the Eastern Cape, there were 226 child deaths due to severe, acute malnutrition and more than 2 000 hospital admissions during that year.
It is clear that we are in crisis!
Love Story exists to assist in solving this crisis; to feed, clothe and bring hope and solution to the poverty in our city. Currently Love Story serves in the region of 30 000 meals per month to the homeless and destitute, with 90% being served to children. We rely solely on the public for donations of food, clothing and finance to allow us to continue the work we do and help expand our reach.
We would like to appeal to you to become a part of the solution.
BY DONATING R100 PER MONTH YOU WILL HELP GET FOOD TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST.
Please consider setting up a Debit Order Authorization Form below. Once we have confirmed your details we will debit your account with the dedicated amount every month.
The state of hunger in our city can be addressed, not by one person nor one organization, but only by the collective, doing what it can, bit by bit.
We look forward to partnering with you.
The Love Story Team
