Christians and Muslims Join Hands in Stellenbosch

Managing Trustee: The Soul Provider Trust, City of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

Soul Food has met with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Stellenbosch to assist them in providing food for many students who are close to starving. Families really have to cut corners to afford to send their offspring to University and as a result there is very little left in the budget for food. This is a problem at all universities in South Africa.

Soul Food’s Cape Town Branch Manager, Nicky Isaacs, the youngster second from the right, reports: “The executive of the MSA and myself met yesterday to discuss how we’ll meet the challenge of the starving students at the University of Stellenbosch. We decided to firstly find out approximately how many students have this problem. The MSA executive are already working on this.

MSA has decided to provide easy-to-prepare meals including Soul Food’s POWA Pack and then together we will both source additional food. Soul Food Cape Town will provide the logistic support. Hopefully we can start in April”.
