The Durban University of Technology’s Photography interns fed over two hundred and fifty people on the World Hunger Day hosted together with NPO, Meals on Wheels at Chatsworth, Durban last Sunday in support of feeding the hungry.
The aim of the World Hunger Day Charity Drive event was to bring attention and awareness to the epidemic whilst helping feed those who are in need of food.
All items were donated to ML Sultan Library and Steve Biko Library and collected by the main organizers of the initiative Aruna Motilal, Samukelo Welcome Dlamini and Nobuhle Chamane.
Samukelo Welcome Dlamini said that this initiative brings people closer to the socio-economic issue of famine, not just an issue but a reality that some people face on their daily lives. As much as the statistics are shocking, but it is more shocking to witness the people who face hunger on a daily basis.
“We hope that more people will perceive this as a matter that needs urgent action, thereby fighting it by all means possible in order to ensure a prosperous nation. We also hope that this inspires others to contribute positively to society, spread the spirit of giving back and changing other people’s lives to the better,” said Dlamini.
The food was enough for everyone and some came back for seconds.
