Dear Oasis family,
Your generosity for our food parcel campaign at the end of 2020 helped to care for, nourish, and encourage 350 of our beneficiaries’ households.
We are all mindful of the challenges that millions of South Africans have experienced over the past 19 months. Challenges that have been felt across the globe. In trying to aid and do our part, Oasis has distributed hundreds upon hundreds of food parcels during this period to those who have found themselves unable to feed their families. We have also provided social, emotional and health support.
Now in our 13th year of food parcels, this year we are aiming to give 400 beneficiaries with intellectual disabilities, the gift of food, nourishment, and care.
One parcel costs approximately R600, and the aim, with your help, is to fill as many parcels as possible between now and Christmas closure. You don’t need to contribute an entire parcel, any amount or item is greatly appreciated.
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 with intellectual disabilities and their families, by supporting our appeal and sharing this message with your family, friends, colleagues and neighborhood groups.
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.
I am also so aware that many who have helped in the past are not able to anymore because of the havoc wreaked by the pandemic. You remain in our thoughts.
We all look forward to a time when things will be easier for all of us.
