Coronavirus. Food shortages. Community kitchens.
Nomonde Waka-Caliber read the signs. She, along with other volunteers, was more than willing to step in.
“Some people were losing jobs, some were getting less money for salaries, some didn’t have food to put on the table; so we decided there was a need to volunteer ourselves,” she says.
Waka-Caliber has volunteered before – she worked at Masifunde Education and Development Trust until its closure.
She now operates a community kitchen in Extension 9. She is proud of the Covid-19 awareness campaigns run from the kitchen and the preventative measures that were taken to prevent infection.
Since February this year, it has been difficult to keep the kitchen operational, she says. But, she is working hard to keep it going.
