Old age soup kitchen

philanthropic travel

We met Gloria a few months ago and her work with the elderly and has inspired us so much that we decided to add her to our community support list. Gloria and her ladies run a soup kitchen and feeds or delivers food to roughly 85 elderly people on most days of the week. You can help with minimal donations such as providing vegetable seeds, planting vegetable gardens and sponsoring kitchen utensils.

Accommodation in Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape

South Africa’s ‘wild’ province, the Eastern Cape features expanses of untouched beach, bush and forest. This was Nelson Mandela’s home province, and is an area with some enticing attractions – among them the Addo Elephant National Park, with the densest elephant population in the world; the dramatic Wild Coast; and, of course, Mandela’s home at Qunu.

There are some spectacular private game reserves here, including Kwandwe, Shamwari and River Bend (on a private part of Addo).
