HOLY FAMILY SISTERS ST. DAVID (Lesotho) GIVE FOOD PARCELS TO VULNERABLE STUDENTS
On the 27th of August, 2020. The sisters at St. David distributed food parcels and sanitary products to Mampota high school students who are most vulnerable due to covid 19 pandemic. Donated food included maize meal, eggs, Fish, vegetables and fruits.
During this lockdown we did not stop working but we could not do education, so we got involved with food distribution to our poor students because most of their parents are being locked in South Africa and children are left with grandparents and some are child-headed households.
We have to stay motivated, we have to keep helping especially with parents not being employed and there is hunger at their homes. This time of civid 19 has affected the economy so badly and most of the parents are sitting at home, they have not been working for months since the lockdown stared. So the food parcel be the only food they received.
This distribution of food was also to mark our 200 years anniversary.
Those who received food said this was a blessing from God as they thank the sister for their generosity.
