Businessman Collen Mashawana has, through his foundation, fed over 10 000 people in three months. He has been assisting the hungry and poverty-stricken during the Covid-19 pandemic.
He took to social media to share that the Collen Mashawana Foundation has fed over 10 000 people in 60 days through the Covid-19 Relief Program. Most of the beneficiaries of the programme are the elderly, women, people living with disabilities and child-headed houses across the country.
"We continue to encourage more people to join the drive towards poverty eradication especially at such trying times."
The foundation distributes food parcels and PPE, having most recently distributed supplies to the community of Ha-Makhuvha and Ha-Mashawana Village. Facebook user Sinthumule Ntsundeni said:
