Food parcels and blankets distributed to Northern Cape community

A hundred families in the Northern Cape were recently given food packs and blankets after being hit severely by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Captain Olebogeng Tawana, a police spokeswoman, said the Northern Cape Chinese Community, in collaboration with the Northern Cape Community Policing Board, offered helping hands to the Phillipstown community by providing food packs, and blankets.
“On the facsimile, there were smiles.”
“Among the recipients were people living with disabilities and elderly persons. The most senior person to receive food parcels and the blanket was an 86-year-old granny,” Tawana said.
The event was held at Phillipsvale Primary School in Phillipstown on Friday, 18 February 2022.

The Northern Cape Provincial SAPS Band kept the audience entertained with lively music.
Tawana said Lu, a Chinese Community leader, was very emotional when he addressed the community.

“We are distributing these food parcels in partnership with the Northern Cape Provincial Community Policing Board to reach out to the needy. We all know the impact of Covid-19. Some lost their lives, and others lost their source of income as the results of Covid-19,” he said.

The Northern Cape Provincial Community Policing Board Chairperson, Ephraim Homan, welcomed the partnership displayed by the Chinese community in Northern Cape.
He pleaded with other business communities to do the same, or more to emulate the Chinese community by plowing back into their neighborhoods, to fight crime by joining patrollers in blue.
