Adding Hope at Oosterland Youth Centre
KFC’s Add Hope – now in its seventh year – has found a powerful way to unite staff and customers in the fight against hunger. Add Hope partners with over 110 beneficiary organisations to feed over 110 000 children every day across the country, helping them learn, grow and thrive. With World Hunger Month coming up in October, Add Hope continues to shine a spotlight on hunger issues in South Africa and the beneficiaries it supports.
Add Hope started their World Hunger Month roadshow by visiting Oosterland Youth Centre in Despatch, Eastern Cape, with media and KFC team members. The day began with an introduction on the Youth Centre, guests were then entertained by beautiful singing and dancing from the children at the early childhood development centre and were then shown the on-site green-house where they got to harvest ripe tomatoes and green peppers for the kids. They finished off the day by helping the house mothers prepare lunch for the children and painted two jungle gyms on the grounds.
Oosterland houses 106 kids ranging from new-borns to 18 year olds and is split 60% girls and 40% boys who are fed three nutritious meals daily.
