LOVE BEAR CAMPAIGN 2022

We are excited to announce that we have launched our annual Love Bear Campaign and from January to the end of March 2022, we will visit Early Child Development (ECD) Centres across the Cape Peninsula distributing Love Bears to little children in need and nutritious meals to fill their tummies.

We believe that if we could provide something that could be cuddled and loved by children under six that became a comfort in their time of sadness and security in their fear – we could really help.

When you add a nutrient-rich breakfast and lunch five days a week into the equation – we can make the world of difference to focus and improve their ability to listen and learn at school. We know children are our future and yet they continue to suffer hunger, malnutrition, and the emotional trauma that goes with living in abject poverty.

Most children under 7 years old who live in poorer communities have no access to education or pre-school. Yet, when they find an oasis in a local ECD Centre, there is a limit to what the ECD can provide.  They are cash-strapped, over-subscribed, and struggle to provide the comfort and nutrition their baby learners need.

Unless we support, nurture, nourish, and educate these precious children, we will perpetuate the social injustices and lose another generation in the process. After discussions with ECD Centre principals, we realised there are two key challenges that we, as an Organisation can assist with, namely nutrition and comfort.

Why is nutrition education from children important?

With almost 70% of children living below the poverty line in South Africa. Many of them still do not have access to nutritious food to help develop their growing bodies and minds. Malnutrition in children continues to be a serious issue in our poor communities where access to the right food is limited or unavailable.

This is why we need to provide education programmes in schools about the importance of malnutrition in early childhood development. Nutrition education for kids will assist in their development through self-awareness through nourishment because a child cannot focus let alone learn on an empty stomach.

There are many schools and ECD Centres that fall outside of the Government’s quantile system.  Many of our beneficiaries who also manage on-site ECDs struggle to get funding and equipment to help run their establishments. They are also in need of food to feed the children every day, while also feeding the children in their communities.
