Volunteers needed to help organisation deliver ‘meals on wheels’

Volunteers together with manager, Jaya Pillay are hoping that volunteers come through.

Local organisation, the Chatsworth Meals on Wheels, that has transformed many lives through charity since inception, is now making a special appeal to members of the community to become volunteers.

The commendable organisation blossomed since 2010 from a small kitchen in a local church to the fully-fledged humanitarian initiative that strives to feed the less fortunate in the community.

Manager of the organisation, Jaya Pillay said, “The main focus of the initiative is to prepare hot meals, soup and bread, which are then lovingly distributed to the needy. We are well aware that providing a meal to the poorest of the poor is the first step in assisting these individuals for their daily tasks.”

The beneficiaries of the organisation include the residents of the Bayview flats, Demat, Welbedatch, Klaarwater, the Westcliff senior citizens, and nine schools around Chatsworth.

The organisation renders their service five days a week and serves 15, 000 meals a month. “We hope to do more for the community since we have been blessed with a new service centre, which will be opened to the community in June 2018. All those in need of a hot sumptuous meal or soup are most welcome to visit the centre that will be fully operational from Mondays to Friday,” said Pillay.

He concluded, “God has blessed our organisation and we hope and pray for blessings on the less fortunate as well.”
