Words of gratitude have been pouring in for the newly established feeding initiative by the Parkwood Community Upliftment Organisation.

Founder Max Amansure says within the three weeks it has been running, they have been able to serve a maximum of 150 children.

They serve meals to vulnerable children in their community on Thursdays at 18:00, and operate from the corner of Ivy Road and Parkwood Avenue.

Amansure says all donations are appreciated, however, he says the support has been slow, but they are keeping faith.

The programme is run by the youth of Parkwood, sharing the little they have among each other and aiming to bring about change and improve the reputation of their community.

Amansure adds since they have seen that waiting for help from anyone does not help, they are prepared to use the little that is available to uplift each other.

They collect donations and then prepare meals. They hope to have at least 30kg of rice, meat, potatoes, onions and any amount of vegetables, and hamburgers.
