Approximately 2 years ago, we partnered with the Domino Foundation and more particularly with the Sandwich Scheme which specifically provides sandwiches to several schools in the North Coast/Amaoti areas.
Volunteers of the Sandwich Scheme make approximately 4100 - 4500 sandwiches a week which it then supplies to the schools in the aforesaid areas. At the two Amoati Schools, the scheme feeds approximately 350 children a day. They have now also extended the feeding scheme to the Amanzimtoti area – south of Durban.
They also provide lunch-time sandwiches for approximately 45 children who receive treatment for HIV and TB at the King George Hospital, who are part of the out-patient section and do not receive hospital meals.
The Scheme also spends approximately R3500.00 per month on plastic bags which they require for the sandwiches. They also utilize monetary donations towards the plastic containers used for delivery of the sandwiches to the various places, as well as for drivers of the vehicles that deliver.
