On a bright and sunny day, The Humanitarians set out to educate their beloved community of Bonteheuwel coupled with presents for the hard working mothers of the household. After briefing at headquarters we set out to hand out pamphlets and two pairs of socks to every household in Bonteheuwel. These pamphlets focused on education surrounding alcohol abuse which is a common problem in this community. It also included easy soup recipes with ingredients found in their households as well as an easy bread recipe for the mothers who love to bake. In addition, this campaign was our first start towards educating all about eating correctly by providing alternatives such as cauli-rice as opposed to rice. As when we do any campaign, it’s all about engaging with the community and two new members joined us for the first time which helped us make an even bigger difference to this community.

By 11am we had completed the two streets of 200 houses in the community. At the end of the day it was an enjoyable and exciting learning experience for all. Next week we will be handing out the left over socks from this campaign to the people living in the CBD area on the streets of Cape Town. And as our motto goes we will be coupling this with sustainable means of food to help keep these people feeling full for longer and allow them to keep warm during the harsh winter days.
