SA celebs help to ‘Stop Hunger Now’

Cosmetic company Kiehls have teamed up with Elvis Blue for the Stop Hunger Now campaign to help feed South African kids.

On May 4th the Kiehl’s South Africa Team  and more than 100 volunteers answered the call to assist in packing meals alongside Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa, in aid of children in Alexandra, Johannesburg.

The joint venture between Kiehl’s South Africa and Elvis Blue was formed on the grounds of striving to live the Kiehl’s mantra to make a difference in each and every community in which they operate.

The University of Cape Town’s Children’s Institute has reported that over 3 million children under the age of 17 are food insecure, and studies around the 1000-day principle and show that during the first 1000 days of a child’s life and brain development being virtually irreversible.


15,000 meals packed by the volunteers including well known personalities such as Lalla Hirayama,Louise Carver, Elma Smit, Angie Khumalo and others, were to be donated to two crèches in Alexandra township.

Elvis Blue, with the support of Kiehls will take part in some infrastructure development projects at the two locations.

The crèches will be encouraged to work with its sponsors and Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa to improve their own infrastructure, through the savings they would have spent on the meals for their pupils.

Radio Personality Grant Nash has also added an additional 5000 meals which were donated.
