Wild Tomorrow Fund is a wildlife conservation charity working on the ground in Southern Africa to save wildlife and wild places, working together with and supporting the communities in our area. Today, families in rural communities living next to our wildlife reserve are facing hungry months ahead due to the COVID-19 crisis. The travel industry shutdown and economic crisis has resulted in major job losses, with additional pressure being placed on rural families as city-based family members return home after losing their jobs.
Wild Tomorrow Fund's hunger relief initiative is providing urgently needed food to families who have been left with no food on the table due to the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis.
Our goal is to raise funds to provide at least 80 families with emergency food parcels each month. These parcels contain essentials for fighting hunger such as rice, vegetables, oil, cabbage, and canned fish and will keep families fed for a month. We are working directly with the community's traditional leadership (the Nduna) to help identify the neediest families, together with the children and the families of the two schools and orphans that we already support. Any funds raised above our goal will enable us to extend the reach of the program. We have begun the first necessary deliveries but need more support to assist these families.
Each parcel costs approximately $35 and will provide food for several weeks for a family. So far we have proudly been able to deliver 4 months of emergency hunger relief support! And yet the end of hunger is not yet in sight. Please continue to support our community.
The sustainable success of wildlife conservation is highly dependent on the support and trust of local communities. In these trying times, it is so important to show them that we care ❤️
