As a result of the forced lockdown during the global Covid-19 pandemic, many families in South Africa who were unable to earn a crust were literally unable to feed their families. The promised food distribution failed to reach the vast majority of the South African population, leaving over 30 million people in desperate need of basic essentials.
It is thanks to Tanya Gardiner and Kathryn Bankart, who are family and friends of Heidi and Andy Tiplady, who actually began this initiative in Johannesburg, that Bushfire is even aware of this terrible plight, and began to support their endeavors.
Since May 2020 Bushfire have helped feed families through the charity 'Viva Foundation'.
Every little helps, and amazingly £5.40 will feed a family of four, for a week! So let's share what we can and show them we care.
