Minnie Dlamini-Jones chats about her powerful Feeding SA Together initiative
56 days ago
Jaguar Land Rover South Africa, the Minnie Dlamini Foundation and the South African Red Cross have joined forces to help feed orphans and the elderly around the country during the COVID-19 crisis. The non-profit #FeedingSATogether initiative has already seen 290 Nutriwell food packs delivered to schools, orphanages and old age homes around the country.
The #FeedingSATogether initiative has made food packs available that feed a child for a month and an adult for three weeks. Its contents include soup, soya mince, instant porridge, isotonic drinks & a MD hand sanitizer from Minnie Dlamini’s own line of personal beauty products.
All donations will be used only for securing additional food boxes & hand sanitisers, which will be distributed by the South African Red Cross. The Red Cross will identify the respective orphanages and old age homes where deliveries can be performed safely and are most needed.
The 947 Breakfast Club chatted to Minnie to find out more about this incredible initiative that she's working on during the COVID-19 crisis.
Minnie is known for always stepping up and doing her part to lend a helping hand.
You are my absolute favourite South African celebrity; even more than any of these guys in the studio!Frankie, 947 Breakfast Club
Initially when the deal started with Jaguar, I said that it needs to be more than just a transactional relationship; it needs to be more than me being seen in one of your amazing cars. I was so privileged and so grateful that when they signed me they signed on my foundation, too. They committed to supporting brands I wanted to be a part of and campaigns I wanted to be a part of that change and shape society into the way that we wanted it to be.Minnie Dlamini-Jones, Minnie Dlamini Foundation
The reality is that the people of South Africa are hungry. the kids that were going to school were getting their meals from school.Minnie Dlamini-Jones, Minnie Dlamini Foundation
Turnaround time from the donation to get the food to the families is a week to two weeks.Minnie Dlamini-Jones, Minnie Dlamini Foundation
So far (as of 22 April), R300,000 has been raised. You can find out more about this wonderful initiative and also do your part to donate to the initiative.

No amount is too small - any contribution counts. I'm also going to be working with Black Coffee on a campaign to raise more money for this project.Minnie Dlamini-Jones, Minnie Dlamini Foundation
