Together with Pastor Gerald November and his humble team of workers at the Lakeside Community Church, Joey Burke managed to entertain the small group of guests in line with COVID-19 protocols and raise over R 100 000 for the much-needed Cape Hunger Project which provides feeding schemes for the poor and underprivileged communities in Cape Town.
The reward of this project is the smiles on children’s faces; tears of gratitude; dignity restored; hope in the eyes of the once hopeless; restoration of families and a new zeal for life!
The aim of the project at the start of 2020 was to feed 2020 (two thousand and twenty) children in 2020 and as the COVID- 19 Pandemic began to spread nationwide the need for this project became even more URGENT and so the Cape hunger Project was developed . The Cape Hunger project is a humanitarian organization that feeds thousands of families, mainly children free of any cost.
They spend their resources on food and skills development and capacity building in a big way for those who were and are deprived and are without access to the developing world.
The feeding of the poor and skills development was started 17 years ago by Desiree Eleanor and a group of volunteers. It grew from one pot of soup feeding 20 to now feeding thousands every week.
Their aim is to make a diﬀerence one person and one family at a time. They have seen hope and purpose brought to many lives and they endeavour to do more.
An enormous thank-you has to go out to all the sponsors and to the very generous community that braved the COVID-19 PANDEMIC (53 guests) to come out and bid.
