A Camps Bay resident, Julian Kriel, is using his new found love for baking to assist the elderly during the nationwide lockdown.Kriel says when president Cyril Ramaphosa announced the lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19, he immediately thought of the elderly and the underprivileged. “After the announcement, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and came across this haunting image of an elderly couple waiting in line to pay for groceries, their basket only contained two crates of eggs and a loaf of bread while the carts in front were stacked to the brim. I woke up with it still very much troubling me and started thinking how I could help,” explains Kriel.He adds that having recently discovered a love for bread baking, he saw it as an opportunity to bake home-made bread for the vulnerable. He is rendering a service free-of-charge to “anyone who is sickly, elderly or financially strained. I know it’s simple but if even one person needs it, I’m ready to assist,” says Kriel. He adds that he is willing to meet those in need at a food store in the area, he says. “I am awaiting official instructions on how we are allowed to leave the confines of our household to go to the shops, but hoping to arrange that anyone near me, on their way to the stores will come past to collect,” he explains.Any person who wants to contact Julian can text him on 060 742 7701.
