World hunger and malnutrition levels worsened dramatically in the last year, with most of the increase likely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a multi-agency United Nations (UN) report published on Monday 12 July 2021.
To worsen things, the news and social media channels are filled with the current looting unrest. In the words of President Cyril Ramaposa on Monday evening when addressing the nation:
“This is not who we South Africans are” and I agree wholeheartedly.
Giving, supporting, helping our fellow citizens – this is who we are. Remarkably everywhere communities are standing together. Citizens step forward to support the police and strengthening the security forces.
So I believe there is hope. On a scale never seen before, individuals and groups are finding ways to help those in need of support. You can join us in doing so.
