Children and adults of Pelican Park were treated to a warm meal cooked by volunteers of the Eagle Eye Neighbourhood Watch last Saturday.

The monthly feeding project catered for more than 800 people, including residents of Phumlani informal settlement.

“The aim of our projects is to uplift local residents. Many of them are faced with various challenges daily and are too scared to seek the necessary assistance. Families in this community struggle behind closed doors and go to bed without food at night. This is the experience we picked up in the neighbourhood and we try to assist where it is needed,” says the watch’s Abdushakoer Soeker.

Soeker says they plan to host fundraisers and educational projects to benefit the ­community.

“We host braais to get funds for much-needed equipment to maintain the neighbourhood watch. Other projects are also done throughout the year and locals are urged to support us in making a difference.

“We need to make this space a safe one for our children. Many of them grow up witnessing the evils of gangsterism and drugs. Our parents need to support the neighbourhood watch to ensure children are driven away from it,” he adds.
