Nelson Mandela Foundation

To respond to the increased levels of food insecurity, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Imbumba Foundation and Kolisi Foundation have partnered on an initiative called #Each1Feed1. The name of the initiative is inspired by the old Congress of South African Students (COSAS) mantra “Each one, teach one” and is adopted in honour of OR Tambo.

From this partnership, the initiative has distributed food parcels in Makhado (Limpopo), East London, Port Elizabeth, Makhanda and Zwide (Eastern Cape), Zandspruit, Orange Farm and Sedibeng (Gauteng), Durban (KwaZulu-Natal) as well as Thaba Nchu (Free State). The initiative has also started on a project to provide boreholes to address the water shortage the communities are facing.

On Saturday, the 9th of May, the partnership will be distributing food in the birthplace of Nelson Mandela, Mvezo, as well as in Qunu, his hometown.
