Donna Oakes joins us in the Afternoon Express studio today to share her story behind the organisation she founded in 2016, called Alms of Love.
It all started after Donna visited an informal settlement just 400m down the road from her house. Upon arriving at the settlement she realised just how desperate the community was for help and felt a desperate need to do something. She began with a food drive but has since turned into a monthly feeding scheme that feeds the entire community.
Those who would like to assist the feeding scheme can either volunteer or donate to the scheme. For more details visit: https://www.almsoflove.co.za/Get-Involved/
