HEAVENS Kitchen a NGO established in 2014 by Kayleigh Symes with the aim of feeding the hungry, providing clothes for the needy and sheltering the homeless has launched a “sock drive” to collect 150 pairs of socks and donate to those in need in the area.

Symes says they are trying to get 150 socks for their initiative.
“We believe in giving wholeheartedly.  We feed approximately 150 less fortunate every Thursday night at Christ Church in Pinetown.
“We love new people to join - come along and spend one hour giving back. It is our calling to give back and we ooze happiness when we feed the hungry with not only a meal, but also spiritually uplift them.” 

“We are motivated by the biblical scriptures that command us to love others as ourselves - John 13:34 - by meeting the needs of others, materially, spiritually and morally.

“There are no restrictions to membership, only kind-hearted people who are ready to give freely are welcome. 

“You don’t have to be rich to be able to get involved. A partner of Heavens Kitchen is someone who is capable of mobilising needed resources for the effective implementation of the project.

 “It is our mission to feed and love the homeless and destitute in a broken society.
“We require donors and sponsors as our aim is geared towards reaching the homeless and needy even beyond the borders of Durban,” said Symes.

“Heavens Kitchen welcomes everyone on board - rich or poor, able or disabled to help eradicate poverty. 
“Heavens Kitchen wishes everyone God's blessings and encourages the public to emulate the spirit of giving as our Lord Jesus Christ commands.
“The wound of one is the wound of all.”
