Cape Town CITY MAYOR PLATO decided to pay our operations base Life Changers a quick visit yesterday morning. After tasting a meal which had been prepared from the one of the almost 60 000 meal packs that have been sent out, he graciously agreed to a quick interview. Please take a few moments to hear his perspectives and encouragements at this time.Once again...THANK YOU to our SPONSORS and VOLUNTEERS, without whom none of this would be made possible!

What is Covid-19?

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently
discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown
before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

Dont Panic

There is no need to panic – 82% of COVID-19 cases are mild: patients only experience a slight fever, fatigue and a cough. Only about 6% of patients need intensive care. The vast majority of people can stay at home and get better without hospital treatment.


The most common symptoms are:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath

Preventative Tips

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a flexed elbow or a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Together we can make a difference
