Shared amongst the community
Every day, our loving cooking crew, makes dozens of nutritional toasted sandwiches which we offer to our clients after their diving adventure. Many days we have food left over which never goes to waste. Gansbaai has two very impoverished communities, Blompark and Masakhane. We take these freshly made sandwiches to two different places. These sandwiches are truly appreciated, like manna from heaven. In the community of Masakhane, there lives a very special lady who looks after 7 of her grandchildren. She struggles to feed everyone and most of the time goes without herself. We support her during the week with food and her grandchildren visit the Swop Shop to gather school supplies and clothes.
In addition the Blompark community has a safe house for vulnerable children whose parents cannot provide for them in a safe environment. We alternate between these two safe havens when delivery food. We are also aware of other people who have hit on hard times and rotate between the houses to support those most needy.
