After discovering hungry children in his community two years ago, Joshua Roos (11) who lives with his grandmother, Manda, in Gordon’s Bay, Western Cape, was inspired to start his own soup kitchen to feed the vulnerable and support various charitable institutions.
As Joshua and his grandmother get by on her disability pension, together they have launched a crowdfunding campaign on BackaBuddy, to better serve their community by providing food parcels to young children and the elderly during lockdown.
Since the project’s launch in June 2020, donors both locally and abbroad have contributed over R5000 towards his fundraising target of R50 000 to expand the soup kitchen and feed hungry tummies. Donate here.
