67000 litres for Mandela Day – Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest

67 000 litres of soup goes a long way. It provides nourishment to 268 000 people for one day.

In honour of Madiba, chefs around the country are uniting with Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest, two food rescue organisations, to cook with compassion for the most vulnerable in our communities.

You can support their goal of eliminating hunger in the months to come by donating R10 per cup of soup to Chefs with Compassion.  That’s half a cappuccino or a nourishing cup of soup for a hungry person.

100 Lives 31 Days – Chris Sithole’s Unearthed Talent

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton.

Nominated by Lucy, a college and friend of his, Chris Sithole has an as yet unearthed talent.

It was Lucy’s late fathers wish to see Chris given a chance to share his talents with the world and Lucy contacted Hot Cares to see if this wish could become a reality.

Chris Sithole is a father of three who has worked as a senior installer at Green Sky Brand Architects for over ten years. Committed, hard-working and often working long hours and travelling for projects, Chris always delivers exceptional service to their clients. He goes over and above at work and is well respected by his colleagues.

That’s how he makes ends meet and provides for his family, but very few people know that his real passion lies in the paintbrush. With what little spare time he has, Lucy says, Chris paints the most magnificent works of art.

Well! Once the Hot Cares team laid eyes on Chris’ paintings, we knew it was something that the rest of the world should see too; and could, in fact, develop into something more than a hobby.

These days, the reality is that artists needn’t starve for their art; we hope that with some exposure and a little extra help, Chris could turn his incredible talent into a stream of income.

To that end, Hot Cares will donate a Wendy House for Chris to use as a private studio space, along with art supplies, a total value of R15 000 to bring him that much closer to making this dream a reality and unearthing the talent that Lucy’s father saw too.

100 Lives 31 Days – Audrey Gets Assistance During a Difficult Time

Audrey, 100 Lives 31 Days, Hot Cares, Hot919fmAudrey Gets Assistance During a Difficult Time

“Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles” – Alex Carras.

Kelly Chomse contacted Hot Cares to assist Audrey.

Audrey is a single mom with a mentally and physically challenged adult son who lives in Nooitgedacht.

Following her retrenchment, Audrey and her family endured some difficult months while Audrey was without a job; but she’s recently found work in the yard at Honeydew Build-it.

Audrey also relied heavily on her daughter who worked half days to bring in some much-needed income for the family as a primary breadwinner of the household; but also to be home with her brother, whose condition requires supervision.

On 3 July, Audrey’s daughter was killed when she was shot through her arm and stomach in an armed robbery. She managed to lock her brother in the bathroom, so he was not hurt in the incident. The perpetrators broke in and stole two cellphones as there was nothing else to take.

The family have struggled financially for a very long time and barely have any food in their house, let alone light bulbs to light the outside their home for security considerations.

In the midst of this devastating loss, the memorial has taken a while to arrange due to financial problems, but a little service has now been arranged for Sunday, thanks to Kelly and the generous help of the community.

Hot Cares is assisting in the printing of service booklets for Sunday; as well as a clothing voucher to ensure Audrey and her son don’t have to worry about what to wear on Sunday.

Hot Cares will also purchase them a washing machine as the disabled son does their washing daily by hand. To ease the day to day burdens, we will also be providing groceries, toiletries and airtime for the next few months.

A total value of R20 000 will go towards assisting Audrey and her son in this difficult time.

100 Lives 31 Days – 2 Brothers Back on Track for their Matric Year

100 Lives 31 Days, Hot Cares, Hot91.9fm2 Brothers Back on Track for their Matric Year

Nominated by her sister Lorette, Lynette Capes has been the sole breadwinner in her household since October 2017 when her husband lost his job. Despite his efforts, his job search has been unsuccessful thus far. The month of April saw the odds being stacked against the Capes family yet again when Lynette lost her job too. As a result of these trying financial circumstances Lynette’s two sons were doing their Matric studies online, but with the additional economic impact of Lynette losing her job, the likelihood of her boys completing their studies this academic year is not high.

We all know how important education is and we’d like to give these boys a fighting chance. Hot Cares will donate R6 000 towards the Capes boys’ education, which will cover the online course for Lynette’s two sons, the data costs and other educational requirements.
