President Julie Staub and Knysna Rotarians would like to extend grateful thanks to those who have donated to our COVID-19 programme. Thank you for making a difference to the lives of local residents who find themselves in extremely difficult circumstances.
As an initial response to the pandemic Rotary Knysna addressed the issue of prevention. Our taxi sanitisation and home sanitisation projects are both up and running and will continue under the auspices of the Knysna Municipality. Our club continues to support Dr Sprenger’s mask project.
The COVID-19 Rotary team is now focusing on targeted food security.
Our project is a primarily voucher system whereby the beneficiary receives a voucher via SMS which is redeemable at Shoprite or Checkers. For those who fall outside the voucher system, we are allocating and distributing food packs of an equal value. We are using Knysna Hope as our service provider for vouchers and pack distribution.
We are in need of additional funding for our food security programme to occur on a large scale. We would greatly appreciate any donations.
