The season of giving

By 17th Jan 2012 May 5th, 2017 No Comments

Traditionally, Paarl Media helps spread a little festive season cheer by assisting selected charities at the end of each year. This year is no exception.  For some children, just to receive a good meal is the best gift they can get so we have made donations to some feeding projects across the country.

In the Cape…

In Cape Town, the Peninsula School Feeding Association provides school feeding to hungry children in primary, secondary and special-needs schools across the Western Cape. They involves 325 200 children in 743 schools, which is a staggering 1 billion meals made with love and funds donated every year. Paarl Media’s support will provide 20 children with nutritious meals for an entire year.  Close by, the Helping Hands.

In Wellington, the South Africa Cares feeding project helps more than 1 900 school children daily. Statistics show that only 27% of the parents in these schools have a permanent job with liveable salaries, and as a result they often can’t afford to feed their children. For the second consecutive year, Paarl Media is also supporting Helping Hands SA to assist in bringing the joy of Christmas to underprivileged children under their care.

In Gauteng…

Paarl Media Gauteng continues to provide ongoing support to The Haven Centre and Prissked Charities. The Haven Care cares for the homeless, unemployed and abused women and children. In addition to soup kitchens, they distribute food parcels to informal settlements and to pensioners at payout points.

In KZN…

Paarl Media KZN has taken the Zamokuhle Orphanage under their wing with the provision of a hamper of food and toys plus some financial support for the upliftment of the orphanage.
