"I am Dumile Magaqa. My goal in life has always been to open up a poultry farm, however this is not possible right now due to my financial circumstances. I have chosen rather to work for my community. I am currently a member of the ward committee and I also co-ordinate Khabazela Soup Kitchen and homework center. I am happy and proud that I am able to help and uplift my community."
Dumi and his team of volunteers feed over 80 kids 5 times a week.
Their passion and dedication over the last 3 years since the launch of the soup kitchen has been inspiring and humbling at the same time. Cooking wholesome meals off a 2 plate gas stove is a challenge that they are always ready for. Feeding over 400 hungry tummies a week, this team have added considerable value to this community.
Born out of the Covid19 crisis, this is our newest soup kitchen feeding over 1800 vulnerable children a month. Run by a dedicated team of ladies who are passionate about helping their community. The team cook 3 to 5 times a week from an outbuilding at their home. We supply them with gas & food supplies every 2 weeks to ensure they can keep serving their people.
"I love cooking for children because I grew up in a poor family, life wasn't easy when it comes to food. When I got this opportunity to cook for vulnerable children, I felt very happy because I know that the children will always be smiling while their tummies are full. I thank Singakwazi Aid for making my dream of taking care of my community children possible." Pretty Ntombifuthi Mwimule
