The Grace Factory started helping mothers in need in July 2012 when Amy Westerman had her first child, Erin Grace. She would find moms who needed baby clothes and toiletries and donate those which she didn't need.

She decided to take her passion to help people to the next level and founded the charity, named after her daughter, Erin Grace - The Grace Factory.

Her second child was born premature and this inspired her to help moms who had premature babies by making and donating maternity packs for parents of premature babies.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that South Africans have been reeling ever since the coronavirus reached our shores in March. Following the nationwide lockdown, millions have struggled to put food on the table and small business have suffered.

Despite this, the owner of a fruit and vegetable stall decided to make a difference to his community in Umthatha. Luyanda "Ndosbi" Nongwadi recently celebrated his birthday and part of the festivities involved donating food parcels to 28 families in need.

In other news, a man, who goes by the Twitter handle @RealMandx has celebrated his father's 74th birthday with a gift to his community. He posted an image of his dad and the food parcels online.

He donated food for 80 families, which is exactly what people need during these trying times.

The post was captioned with the following:

"My dad who's a stroke survivor and 74 years old, donated 80 food parcels to the underprivileged in various Limpopo Villages (Venda)."
