Before Covid-19 hit South Africa, it was already plagued by poverty, hunger and the highest unemployment in history following the recent global economic crisis, steep food and fuel prices, severe climate events—and now the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 3 million additional people are now unemployed and struggling to feed their families.The need for local home food production is urgent.
Food security begins in the backyard. INMED South Africa’s Seeds for Life campaign will help 2,500 households establish and sustain backyard food gardens. Your donation will provide free seeds and training to families on the brink of starvation, with future assistance to ensure the gardens and families thrive.
