Hands of Honour supports the Ottery CAN! campaign during #LockdownSA and COVID-19
This is Ottery. Home to over 12,000 South Africans. Neighbour to Cape Town’s leafy southern suburbs. Isolation here is near-impossible, what with 4 – 12 people sharing a flat. The impact of lockdown on the people who live here is crippling. They have a roof over their heads, but no money to buy food and amenities. This is a community struggling for survival.
We need to move fast! Our aim is to deliver care packages, giving a typical family of 4 with everything they need to get through lockdown. Our #LockdownBox includes basic groceries, fruit and vegetables, meat and electricity.
Support us to get the Ottery community through lockdown. #OtteryCAN!
