Day 4 of the lock down and what a hectic start to the week…!
The morning started early with calls for help from a person suspecting she may have contracted Covid-19 and needed to be taken to Rob Ferreira Hospital.
I was on my way to the Community centre in Nelspruit with a much needed delivery of food to them, as they are looking after 90 or so homeless persons during the lockdown period, and made a detour to collect the person requiring medical assistance to take her to Hospital, unfortunately the lady had to sit in the back of our Land Cruiser with the food as for safety reasons she could not sit in front. I forgot the ladies name but I apologise for the bumpy ride in the back and I felt a bit awkward having to ask a lady to sit in the back, but it is unusual times we live in …..
TJ Mare at the Community Centre looked a bit overworked when I arrived, and hopefully the food delivery perked his spirits up a bit? You folks are doing an awesome job at the Community centre and we will support you every step of the way.
Thanks to a very timely and much needed donation received from a local initiative namely Giving Back 2 our Community (GB2C), that was spearheaded by Crossing Centre Nelspruit during the centre’s 16th Birthday late last year. Several local businesses form part of GB2C including Buco Nelspruit, Caltex/Omar Family, Mica Nelspruit, SuperSpar Crossing, Visagie Group amongst others who made it possible for us to purchase much needed food today as the current need in our community is huge, and without kind donations such as from GB2C, we will simply run out of food and help will stop.
What we bought today will be handed out to people in our community that is in desperate need of something to eat.
GB2C thank you so much for your help and thanks to you many people will sleep a few days with full tummies.
Please stay safe and stay indoors.
