"We remain in close contact with the relevant disaster relief organisations and local authorities to determine what aid is required and how we can be of further support," says Sanjeev Raghubir, chief sustainability officer at the Shoprite Group. 

Customers wishing to support relief efforts can donate as little as R5 to the '#ActForChange' Fund at the till point in all Shoprite, Checkers and Usave supermarkets.

According to the group, 100% of donations collected will go to Gift of the Givers in support of relief efforts nationwide.

The kitchens are currently serving affected communities in:

  • Khayelitsha
  • Philippi
  • Strand, and
  • Sir Lowry's Pass Village.
