CAPE TOWN – Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and rugby legend Bryan Habana partnered through their respective foundations to deliver food parcels to schools in the Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha areas.
Pick n Pay’s Feed the Nation campaign also got on board with a R450 00 donation which saw 300 parcels donated to Lantana and Hillside Primary Schools in Mitchells Plain and 400 packages to Masiyile High School in Khayelitsha.
“We have to empower the parents so they can love and support their children.
“That’s why we are supporting this initiative so the children can learn and dream freely, without worrying about where their next meal is coming from,” said Kolisi.
The food parcels are expected to feed families for a month and the duo is looking to deliver to two more schools in Steenberg next week.
