Love Howick

Non-governmental organisations, companies, farmers and residents banded together at the weekend to ensure the most vulnerable members of the community received food.

With long queues at supermarkets that survived the looting and arson during last week’s unrest, Love Howick set about collecting milk, bread and vegetables.

Rachel Judd, spokesperson of the organisation, said they had partnered with other NGOs, faith-based organisations, African Spirit, Freedom Church, Oasis Church, Ethembeni, Action in Isolation, Love Notties, Merrivale Xtra, the Democratic Alliance outreach team and Nightingales Home Based Care Services to distribute supplies across the uMngeni Municipality region.
