COVID-19 SUPPORT STRATEGIES
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, we remain steadfast in helping as many families as possible by working closely with the Swartland Municipality, the Swartland Hospital, the Provincial Health Services Authority and the Department of Social Development to implement the following Seven Support Strategies that will bring relief to those most in need during these challenging times.
OUR POP CENTRES TURNED INTO FEEDING STATIONS
TWO RECOVERY CENTRES ON THE GOEDGEDACHT FARM
CARE FOR THE PLANET VEGETABLE GARDEN INITIATIVE
SUPPORTING FARM FAMILIES AT RISK
TESTING & TRACKING STATIONS
PRODUCTION OF AN IMMUNE BOOSTING DRINK
SOCIAL & COMMUNITY SUPPORT
To make all of this happen, the Goedgedacht Trust needs to cover the costs of a variety of items, e.g. food, transportation, gas and electricity costs, sanitising products and many other related expenses.
Donations are therefore a very valuable contribution in supporting the Goedgedacht Trust to help rural families during this pandemic.
DID YOU KNOW?
When the Goedgedacht Trust reports on how many people receive meals at their POP centres, it means that one member of a family collects meals on behalf of the family, in line with social distancing regulations. This has been made possible through the generosity of loyal friends and partners of the Goedgedacht Trust. A tax paying donor, making a bona fide donation in cash or of property in kind to the Goedgedacht Trust, is entitled to a deduction from taxable income as the donation is supported by the necessary section 18A receipt issued by the Trust.
