It's been a long time since SISO teams have been able to get out to the sites to do training. With Lockdown Level 1 announced, its time for ECDs to open so our teams set up training and discussion spaces across eight different sites in Khayelitsha to inform and educate about government regulations and requirements.
So good to be back with feet on the ground and connect again with these incredible ECD practitioners and caregivers!
With the cold and rainy weather this week, our teams have been limited in our door to door visits. However, we were able to bless this lovely lady who has her own local Khayelitsha business... times are tough when your customers have lost their jobs. You can’t see the very big smile, but this will help with food on the table for her family.
Today on Radio Khaltsha 97.1fm Zintle Asanda Nose was our guest. She was talking about pregnancy and COVID-19, as well as dealing with stress and taking good care of children during this pandemic period. Zintle is one of our valued social workers and its great to have the space on the show each week to talk about community issues.
Thank you Johnson & Johnson, Care Inspires Care and Community Chest of the Western Cape! Your generous donation of baby products will make all the difference to moms and children in Khayelitsha!!
Today is Wellness Wednesday - the team put together packs of basic child medicines which will be distributed to families in need over the next few days. At the same time, we’ll check in to find out how families are doing. It’s icy and cold in Cape Town right now with snow on the mountains, but thankfully the cold front is moving off at last.
And... we beat the stormy weather to get food parcels out during the day. To all our donors, this delivery is thanks to you! Our team was able to bulk buy this food with funds donated to SISO specifically for food relief. You have brought joy and hope to many households today! 😊 Thank you so much!!!
