The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the extended national lockdown has had a detrimental effect on vulnerable communities along the N4 Toll Route. Financial constraints and unemployment are rife, resulting in many households not even having basic food supplies.
Someone once said: “ If you are in a position to help somebody in need , you do it . ” TRAC lives by this philosophy and this is exactly why the company recently reached out to help its community members in need.
In consultation with the City of Mbombela, TRAC donated R50 000 worth of food parcels to needy communities in the municipal area. The parcels consisted of non-perishable foods and each included 10kg mealie meal, 2kg samp, 2.5kg sugar, 2l cooking oil, soup, tinned fish, baked beans and tea.
The parcels were loaded, packed and distributed under strict COVID-19 protocols to the beneficiaries.
While our heart remains heavy that our most vulnerable community members are suffering from the effects of COVID-19, we are grateful that we have been able to make a difference where it matters most.
