Uitenhage - Afri-Save Cash & Carry fed more than 70 homeless people gathered at the Uitenhage Town Hall a meal.

Uitenhage Wholesaler, Afri-Save Cash & Carry, under the leadership and instruction of businessman, Yusuf Jeeva and son, Munir Jeeva, Managing Director, made it their personal mission to come to the rescue of the many homeless now sheltered at the Uitenhage Town Hall.

Meals were prepared by the Afri-Save Cash & Carry resident chef, who meticulously ensured the taste and texture of the meals were up to standard with the best meals prepared and once this was completed, volunteers set off to deliver the meals, as well as refreshments, to their destination.

Once at the Uitenhage Town Hall, the homeless, which consisted of men, women and children, including an 18 month old baby, were quickly gathered together to receive the tasty Afri-Save Cash & Carry meals and cooldrink.

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Counsillor, Shaun Soyes, was exuberant with the gesture and he, together with member of parliament, Marshall Von Buchenroder, were on hand as custodians to dish out the meals to each of the homeless gathered there.

“In this time of global pandemic and national lockdown, we feel even more responsible to help our community and assist where we can. Even prior to the latest events, we have always come to the rescue of the hungry and destitute of our local community, through our various enterprises, including our weekly feeding schemes, mobile kitchens and donations. We will continue to push on and be there for those who are in need, no matter what the cost,” said Munir Jeeva.
