The Crisis in Cape Town
South Africa has announced the globally most radical lockdown to protect its population from COVID-19 infections.
Public life has been shut down since 27th of March 2020 and people are obliged to isolate at home. Especially low income communities struggle with the financial side effects. In an environment of high unemployment rates, the few income sources are cut off and basic food and health supply can’t be provided. Starvation, dramatic socio-economic consequences and the escalation of the generally critical situation are expected.
#TogetherforCapeTown is to unite people, companies and organisations from all over the world to channel resources and jointly empower the Youth of the Western Cape in under-resourced communities with an emphasis on education and job creation.
Help is needed instantly!
We are committed to providing at least 3.000.000 meals to hungry children in Cape Town by the end of 2020.
As the brainchild of Philipp Hartmann in Cape Town, the fundraising platform TogetherForCapeTown.com was created jointly with the Swiss NGO UBUNTU and the German NGO MATCHBOX, which both focus on the empowerment of children in South Africa‘s under-resourced communities.
Hand-in-hand we support hungry children with meals or food parcels, distributed through our reliable partner organisations on the ground.
To achieve this, we need your help!
