Spionkop Outreach during COVID-19
Spionkop acknowledges the impact of COVID-19 on impoverished communities, we're lending a hand in the best way we can with a Food Parcel Project.
At Spion Kop Lodge I have a rural School project, which I started when I left teaching to come and work here. I look after the local school Schitsdrift ,adjacent to the lodge .There are some 257 children in the school ,plus a crèche ! Whilst at school the children receive a daily meal, for many children the only meal that they get in a day. Now with this Covid-19 lockdown , those children are actually starving! I have set up a gifting food parcel scheme ,for the poverty-stricken children and families in our community . You have no idea how they appreciate our assistance !Life is tough for everyone at present, but to be starving and not have food for your children must be agony ! People will revert to stealing and poaching when they are starving ,that is why it is so important for all of us here ,to assist wherever possible.
A message of appreciation we received:
