A group of 7 men came up with an idea to ask for sponsors from businessmen around Alexander in Johannesburg where they will be feeding poor kids in the area as unemployment is very high in the informal settlement next to Sandton.
The men have so far collected around R120 000 on which they have already bought food and clothes for the poor kids of Alex. The next move is to distribute those things to the needy.
Alexander has a high number of unemployed people and it seems things are worse now during lockdown as there are a lot of people who lost their jobs in the area.
These men are now planning an initiative where they will buy school uniform for poor kids in the area.
