How to feed the homeless during the COVID 19 pandemic
Recently, NEO PHARM, initiated by Les Holmes (Chairman of The Holmes Group) appointed a committee to contribute towards the responsibilities of corporate social concerns. The committee has decided that feeding the homeless is the most beneficial way for NEOPHARM to support the community. To do this we visited the local area around Riverside Farm and the social crime member (Sersant(f)Charlene Pietersen) of Groot Drakenstein Police Department assisted where there was a real need for help.
We were thus able to determine the best way forward to feed the homeless through connecting with current feeding shelters. The two being Aunt Sienna, 39 Church street, Kylemore and Helene Benans, 3 Protea Street, Sawmills, both in Francshhoek.
The two soup kitchens deliver 500 plates of hot meals on Wednesdays to the homeless community of Francshhoek funded by NEOPHARM.
