Amongst all the bad is always a glimmer of hope that’s found in the hearts of those willing to assist their community. The Mandela Youth Centre based in Chatsworth, KwaZulu-Natal has been supporting the RK Khan Hospital for a good while now and after receiving a serious call for assistance, they were on the job in no time!
Due to the riots, there was a lack of bread to feed patients at the hospital and without thinking twice, the community stepped in to make rotis as a replacement for the bread shortages.
The Mandela Youth Centre received another call from a children’s and old aged home also appealing for bread. “When they called out: “There’s no Bread’. We said: ‘Let them eat Roti”… And we assure you we kicked off a heartwarming Revolution, unlike the violent one Queen Marie-Antoinette started. We had happy people anxiously awaiting delivery,” says the Mandela Youth Centre.
“COVAC pulled in volunteers from the youth centre, other organizations, bikers and a few seasoned roti making mothers to help.”
The team rolled out and toasted over 500 rotis and they only hope to do this daily to help those who are hungry until the bread delivery situation becomes stable again.
