IVLP Alumni Help Combat Against Food Insecurity during COVID-19

We are living in unprecedented times with many people in society facing challenges. While there are many in need, there are those rising up to the challenge and making a difference, like Godfrey Mokaeane, an alumnus of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) program and board member of NGO Breadline Africa, and fellow IVLP alumna Lucinda Evans. Through Breadline Africa's implementing partner, Mokaeane and Evans have helped thousands in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the announcement of lockdown, Breadline Africa immediately focused all of its efforts towards feeding programs in poor communities to help alleviate hunger. Currently, Breadline Africa's Lockdown Feeding Crisis plan includes 27 feeding sites, across four provinces, delivering 69,000 weekly meals.
