Media personality Minnie Dlamini-Jones is using her influence as one of South Africa’s most followed celebrities on social media to help those most vulnerable during the national lockdown. The television presenter took to social media to ask fellow South Africans to help her to help with food for those who can’t get regular meals due to the lockdown.
“The Minnie Dlamini Foundation and Jaguar Land Rover have joined forces to try feed those around the country who don’t have access to regular meals during the Covid-19 lockdown period.
Using the hashtag #FeedingSATogether we are looking to raise funds to supply and distribute these communities with Nutriwell food packs and Minnie Dlamini hand sanitizers”, she said. The “Becoming Mrs Jones” star further said that Jaguar South Africa has made cars available to distribute the packs.
All we need you. No donation is too little or too much. We are looking for you to donate as little as R20 and as much as you possibly can to help feed those in need. We are calling on companies, businesses and individuals to help feed South Africa together.
