South African's have been hard hit by the covid-19 with many feeling the financial pinch of lockdown.
Nadia Jaftha and her mother Nawal launched an initiative called 'Grateful Giving' where they donate food items, face masks and other necessities to help those in need.
The mother and daughter joined The Flash Drive with Carl Wastie to speak about their community project.
Listen to the full interview in the audio below.
"We go out once a month and give out to the community where we can," explains Nadia.
Nawal says that the idea for the NGO was borne when she realised that if she's affected by lockdown, what about those who do not have an income. She then rallied friends and family to help out.
"I said to my friends and family that we have got to do something where we know where the food is going, who is getting the food, physically giving it to them yourselves, and it's not landing in places where you didn't expect it"
'Grateful Giving' is appealing to the public to help out. If you'd like to get involved or learn more, you can DM Nawal Jaftha on Instagram here, or send an email to email@example.com
