DJ Black Coffee, real name Nkosinathi Maphumulo, said he was on a mission from now until the lockdown was over to raise as much money as possible towards Covid-19 relief.

With the help of his supporters, he has raised over R411,000, but he said he would not stop there.

He has now teamed up with Minnie Dlamini-Jones, Jaguar SA and SA Red Cross to support their #FeedingSATogether initiative.

“Each of the food packs they’re putting together for a small price can feed those in need for up to a month. Anything you can donate will go towards feeding families all around SA. No one deserves to go to bed hungry #WeAreOne #HomeBrewedJaguar.

“Land Rover South Africa, the Minnie Dlamini Foundation and the South African Red Cross have joined forces to help feed orphans and the elderly around the country during the Covid-19 crisis.  The non-profit #FeedingSATogether initiative has already seen 290 food packs delivered to schools, orphanages and old age homes around the country,” he said on his GoFundMe page.

He said the #FeedingSATogether initiative has made the packs available that include soup, soya mince, instant porridge, isotonic drinks and an MD hand sanitiser from Minnie Dlamini’s line of personal beauty products.

“All donations will be used only for securing additional food boxes and hand sanitisers, which will be distributed by the South African Red Cross. The Red Cross will identify the respective orphanages and old age homes where deliveries can be performed safely and are most needed.”
