FEED the Babies Fund is a registered non-profit organisation that was established in KwaZulu-Natal in 1957.

The fund runs a nutritional project called Amandla kwi Zingane that feeds 8 000 orphans and vulnerable children in rural areas and informal settlements in KwaZulu-Natal every day.

The objectives of the organisation is to ensure that babies of all races receive at least one nutritious meal a day during the formative years, from birth to six years old.

They focus on the promotion and maintenance of good health, hygiene and safety amongst babies of all races.

The organisation ensures that pre-school children stand a fair chance of a good education by being in a setting that lays the framework for future learning and to give every child a sense of love and caring by providing them with items of comfort.

By abiding to the mission and vision statement the Feed the Babies Fund organisation provides a formulated cereal to crèches in these areas and controls the feeding of the children through regular visits. The children are evaluated and monitored continually to ensure they are being fed correctly and are in good health.

In addition to the nutritional project, Feed the Babies Fund runs a second project, Isandla Esisizayo, which focuses on providing a variety of items to a number of needy organisations. These items include clothes, blankets and other foodstuffs. The beneficiaries of this project are not only crèches, but soup kitchens, crisis centres, orphanages, halfway houses and schools.

All items distributed in this project are from “in kind” donations received - unlike the cereal provided for the Amandla kwi Zingane project which needs to be purchased from cash donations received.
