Lalapanzi Lodge is situate close-to Sir Lowry’s pass village. A poor village with high unemployment and poverty. Arriving in South Africa and seeing this was a shock for us. Our family decided to get involved with the local community and my parent are now running a charity from the Netherlands to support a soup kitchen and sponsor various school children with there academic careers.
We are therefore proud to be associated with www.childrensfoodure.nl and Under His Wings children’s food foundation.
Under His Wings - children’s food foundation is run by Pearl Stryders, who prepares and feed approximately 300 children on weekdays and has been doing this for the last 20 years from her house.
Childrensfoodure.nl is assisting Pearl Stryders initiative by providing weekly shopping, gas and helps with the upkeep of her building and kitchen. Because we believe that education is the only way to get out of poverty, the foundation started to get involved in children’s education. The foundation now sponsors approximately 60 children a year with books, school clothing and a dedicated homework teacher.
