As the “Stay At Home” orders continue to spread around the world, South Africa is also enforcing lockdown and physical distancing regulations in the effort to flatten the curve of the deadly coronavirus.
The 21-day lockdown was recently been extended by an additional 14 days, following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement on Thursday, April 10. Newlyweds Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung and Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo have donated R200 000 in food vouchers to 50 destitute families.
The couple took to their social media platforms over the Easter weekend to announce that they have launched their own organisation “Somhale Foundation,” with the sole purpose of “changing the world, one person at a time.”
In a video clip posted on the organisation’s Instagram accounts, the couple announced: “We came up with this amazing idea where we decided to start a foundation, and we call it the Somhale Foundation, and our aim is to make this world a better place one person at a time.
“We’re giving away R500 worth of vouchers that we bought at Makro so that they can buy themselves groceries, and we’ve chosen 400 families,” said Somizi.
The couple distributed the vouchers in two informal settlements in Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni over the Easter weekend.
