For many families in the Simunye area The Simunye Project has been instrumental in the development of a Food Bank. The Food Bank provides rice, beans, maize meal, cooking oil, salt, sugar and other items. Orange trees and spinach plants have also been distributed in the area. The members deposit 100R per month with the Food Bank. At the end of 6 months The Simunye Project purchases food in bulk to distribute to its members. This dramatically increases their buying power and ensures they have food staples for the following 6 months. The Simunye Project Team delivers the food.
The Simunye Project helps on an as-needed basis to provide food for the people unable to care for themselves due to sickness as well as people who cannot afford food.
