Former Springbok wing Bryan Habana has made a R40 000 donation to South Africa’s largest food redistribution charity to help with relief efforts in the ongoing fight against Covid-19.
Habana, through his foundation and in partnership with Ozow, donated the money to FoodForward SA to assist its mission to distribute food and raise awareness of the massive food insecurity crisis that is affecting millions of South Africans due to and during the coronavirus pandemic.
Habana, who is also a brand ambassador of FoodForward SA, handed a cheque to the organisation’s managing director Andy du Plessis in which he, along with the Ozow team, sponsored and made up 200 food parcels, valued at R80 000, which will be distributed by the Bryan Habana Foundation to charities of their choice.
"The Bryan Habana Foundation, together with its partner, Ozow, is committed to supporting registered charities that deliver direct food support assistance to food insecure communities across South Africa," Habana said.
Habana played in 124 Tests for the Springboks, scoring a record 67 tries in his 12-year career between 2004-2016.
