THANK YOU to all those who donated and to the Local Choice Colony Pharmacy for providing the products at a discount. The support and amount donated for this initiative is amazing.

One of the donation boxes the e’Pap Foundation was able to donate from our first drop off in May-  of 400 latex gloves, 51 masks, 9 500ml Hand Soap, 15 LUX soap bars, 20 bottles of sanitiser and 918 sanitary pads – donated by our community in just 3 weeks. This box was donated to the Dundee Children’s Court for children attending child abuse cases.

 

The CRA and Local Choice Colony Pharmacy are collaborating with the e’Pap Foundation NPC to support communities in need.

The e’Pap Foundation urgently needs hand sanitizer and masks for their helpers who are distributing food packs in the communities. Sanitary pads, soaps, and other feminine hygiene goods are also desperately needed by women and girls within these communities.

 

These items can be purchased at SPECIALLY REDUCED PRICES and placed in a bin at the exit to the Local Choice Colony Pharmacy.

 

The e’Pap Foundation (Reg 2016/440399/08), established 20 years ago, are supplying over 500 packs of food daily, through specific distribution centres to different hungry communities in Gauteng during this period. Each pack, which is tailored to needs and requests, feeds a family for a week.

For further details of the work done by e’Pap go to www.epap.co.za.

As all communities have different nutritional needs, the organisation would prefer to have monetary donations rather than donated food items, as all packs distributed in an area must be identical to prevent discontent. Funds collected are spent on much-needed food items and e’Pap, a fortified maize and soya powder.
