Dear Oasis family,
Once again, a big “thank you” to everyone who helped us provide food parcels to 314 of our adult and day centre child beneficiaries in 2019. None of us dreamt at the time that within months the entire globe would be in the grips of a health crisis which would impact all of us – some of us very tragically.
We are deeply grateful for your kind and generous support over the years. You have all consistently given. Each year we have reached our target of festive food parcels.
None of this would have been possible without you.
The year 2020 has been very different from previous years. We have had to distribute hundreds of food parcels every month to those in need within the Oasis family. There will be no holiday period to speak of this year as we were only permitted to start phasing back our beneficiaries towards the end of November, and most are still at home. Our team is working relentlessly to provide emotional support and social assistance during this difficult time.
Now in our 12th year of food parcels, we are aiming to give 350 beneficiaries the gift of food, nourishment, and care. At a cost of over R600 for one food parcel, the aim is to, with your help, fill as many parcels as possible between now and Christmas closure.
Each parcel will hold nourishing, low-cost food, health and hygiene items, as well as a few treats.
Every rand, every tin of baked beans, or packet of rice donated helps us put together a food parcel. We hope that you will assist us in gifting our beneficiaries and their families by supporting our appeal and sharing this message with your family, friends, and colleagues.
The details of how to give a tin, or packet of food, or to contribute cash towards filling parcels are below.
Thank you to all who can assist. To those who can’t, we send our thoughts of support to you.
It has been a really tough year for everyone.
We hope 2021 will be better.
