More than 1000 residents from Hanover Park, Ottery, Philippi, Lotus River, Grassy Park and Wetton received various essential goods at Chinatown in Ottery on Sunday.

The groceries and blankets were donated by Chinatown and the Tzu Chi Foundation.

“With grateful thanks to the Tzu Chi Foundation who donated over 1000 10kg rice parcels, China Town added more food items and blankets to the donation which was then handed out to the recipients,” says Steve Kruger, a trustee of the Tzu Chi Foundation.

Tzu Chi Foundation is a charitable organisation from Taiwan that gives generously to various communities around the world – not only materially, but also with voluntary work to assist in various humanitarian situations.

On Sunday, those very volunteers manned all of the tables and over a couple of hours handed out the parcels.

“China Town is proud to be associated with this very meaningful initiative,” adds Kruger.

Retired police captain Keith Blake, a humanitarian activist on the Cape Flats and a member of the Ottery Baptist Church, together with various community leaders, identified those most in need and arranged for them to come to China Town on Sunday morning to collect their parcels in a quiet and dignified gathering. “This is the third year that I have been tasked to nominate one thousand residents and this was done with the assistance of the various community leaders. The recipients on the numerous lists each received vouchers which they brought to the event and this voucher was the key to receiving the donations.”

Safety was ensured through the security services of Chinatown, Grassy Park Police Station and traffic officials were thanked for their duties and crowd control as no incidents occurred.

“Mother Theresa once said, ‘If you cannot feed 1000 people then only feed one’,” concludes Blake.
