Two Capetonian brothers made sure that one million people across Cape Town have had a warm plate of food after they started a feeding scheme when the COVID-19 pandemic hit South Africa.
Joe and Faieck Samodien started the Invisible Hands feeding scheme in 2020, in an effort to provide a warm meal to the struggling residents in the Mother City.
As per News24, the brother achieved this milestone on Saturday, September 25, where they cooked 105 pots of noodle broth which were distributed to various communities such as, Mitchells Plain, Delft, Hanover Park, Wynberg, Muizenberg, Atlantis, Paarl, Worcester and Grabouw.
Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato also congratulated the brother’s on their amazing achievement, and for their hard work and dedication towards the people of the city.
Meanwhile,22-year-old Rida Rylands, from Manenberg feeds nearly 300 people a day from a soup kitchen that started in a Manenberg open field in memory of his late uncle.
According to Rylands on most days, their organisation feeds up to 250 people every day, but when it comes to month end, it feeds up to 300 people and sometimes, more.
