An extract from Nkosinathi’s latest report
‘Very often, the beneficiaries of (Nkosinathi) services lack the resources to provide even basic nutrition for themselves and their children. The donation from the Union of Jewish Women is therefore essential in ensuring that no blind child or adult coming to the Foundation or visited by the Foundation has gone hungry.
The monthly donations have been used to purchase food for the following beneficiaries:
- Blind children: Meals when attending Early Childhood Development and other rehabilitation groups.
- Blind adults: Meals and refreshments when attending employment or rehabilitation training.
- Families of blind people: Provision of basic food parcels where there is an extreme need in the home of blind children or blind adults – prioritising those who have children’.
