Our Latest Campaign

Launch of Gauteng Together

Following the President’s April 9th announcement extending the COVID-19 lock down to the end of April, with its obvious impact on our economy, there’s a growing concern that millions of South Africans could starve. It has prompted organisations across the country to mobilise to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

Today marks the launch of Gauteng Together initiative which brings together THE ANGEL NETWORK, The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation, and a number of other seasoned NPOs and members of the public to combat hunger across Johannesburg. The project replicates the already successful Cape Town initiative, with some added Gauteng flair.

The goal of Gauteng Together is to mobilise Community Action Networks (CANs) across Gauteng to assist those in need during this difficult time. Each CAN will be organised at neighbourhood level and joined to the Gauteng Together network. Suburbs will be paired with informal settlements and townships to connect needs and capacity across the city.

The organisation’s short term goals are to alleviate hunger and meet people’s most basic needs during lockdown, and in the weeks and months to come. But long term, the aim is to build sustainable partnerships across the province.

To make this initiative work, they need all neighbourhoods to get involved and set up their own Community Action Network (CAN), each of which will have a dedicated Whatsapp channel of communication, and an administrator to oversee and coordinate the process. Gauteng Together will provide detailed guidelines for how to set up a CAN, and will always be available to assist, collaborate, brainstorm, and share knowledge.

If you are in Gauteng, and you would like to help, you can do so by:

  1. Volunteering to administrator a Community Action Network (CAN) in your area which involves taking responsibility for your neighbourhood and its efforts to help, and working alongside the informal settlements paired with your neighbourhood.
  2. Signing up to be part of a Community Action Network (CAN), assisting your neighbourhood administrator to meet the needs in your neighbourhood, and the informal settlement paired with your neighbourhood.

People can also sign up for assistance by contacting their neighbourhood’s CAN team.

While we may be apart, we can be a part, together.

4) The items are sanitised, and delivered to Nyanga for the 2 soup kitchens

Thank you to the Gardens CAN Graphic designer, Reene Rossouw, who designed these.

Gauteng CAN

Gauteng can is a rapidly developing community-based response to COVID-19 and it’s growing every day! Gauteng aims to inspire ordinary people in every community to form local Community Action Networks or CANs. Gauteng can wants to help communities self-organise to take action at the neighbourhood level to educate each other on accurate information, support the most vulnerable and high-risk residents, and share ideas and resources with other CANs across the province.

COVID-19
Donations needed to help during COVID-19 crisis

At a time like this, we are all being called upon to assist in any way we can. Medical and emergency personnel are being stretched to their limit, as are SAPS and the army. Let us all, from the comfort of our home, dig deep right now, if we are in a position to, and help where help is needed. We never know when we may be the ones needing help.

We have 3 appeals currently –
– loaves of unopened bread and spreads (not fish paste or peanut butter) for thousands of starving children
– masks and gloves for medical and emergency personnel

This is where your donations in the past 4 days have gone to:
– R40 000 – SA Harvest

– R5 000 – C.O.N.E.C.K.T
– R25 000 – for 500 masks and 500 pairs of gloves

#NOEXCUSE

The #NOEXCUSE movement has a mission to create social impact in all communities and enable people within them to do the same. The Angel Network is pleased to be included in the Forgood #NOEXCUSE campaign – We call on all our members, donors and beneficiaries to TAKE A STAND against GBV during these 16 Days of Activism. How YOU can make a difference? Whilst we work hard to correct the ills of society, what you can do NOW is donate a RAPE COMFORT PACK – for only R120 ( the cost of a mere 3 cappacinos) to give a moment of dignity to the victims of this heinous crime! #NOEXCUSE #itsnityourfault #forgood

Our Call To Action For Victims Of Rape & Abuse with Miss World SA, Sasha-Lee Laurel Olivier
#itsnotyourfault

A very brave, courageous woman who is a shining light to all of us; Sasha-Lee Laurel Olivier, Miss World SA. Taking her story to a global stage as her Beauty With Purpose initiative, Sasha is taking on fundraising for 10.000 Rape comfort packs. As you all know, we started this initiative a while ago, and now we are so proud to have her take it forward. Please support her with a R120 donation to give a moment of dignity to a victim in their worst moment of need. Thank you Miss World SA, Sasha-Lee and the incredible team behind her and this initiative. You don’t have to be abused to be human, and feel another person’s pain.

The Angel Network has already donated R240,000 for 2,000 RAPE CARE PACKS for victims of Rape and Abuse & we’re looking to our community members & corporates to assist us in doubling our initial donation.

With the recent exposé about rape kits on MNET’s Carte Blanche, we were adamant at The Angel Network to help in any way we could. Sadly with the medical protocol involved, we were led to endless dead ends.

Despite the medical protocol that prevents us from doing more, we have together with Penny Stein – who has been instrumental in fighting this insurmountable cause – donated 2,000 RAPE CARE PACKS to clinics, drop-in centres, police stations & a bunch of very hard-working credible NGOs, who tirelessly work in this dark space daily. Our commitment to these RAPE CARE PACKS will be ongoing & we will be there to assist for as long as it takes. Individually, we cannot address the enormity of this problem, but collectively we can offer the victims of rape and abuse a moment of dignity.

The statistics of rapes in our country are staggering. It’s time we stand up & do something to assist those in this life-shattering crisis, we owe it to ourselves to do the right thing. While we would like to do so much more, we are urging our community members to assist us in this appeal, as we fight to get more heavily involved.

We cannot do this alone. We are asking everyone for their help. Please donate R120 per Pack to add to our 2,000 packs. We would like to double this initial contribution.

We are making up 4 different pack – woman , men, girls and boys – and each pack contains: Tooth brush and Toothpaste, Shower gel, Face cloth, Tissues, Deodorant (men and woman pack), Mouthwash, Comb, Sanitary pads (woman pack), Underwear, Sweets (for sugar), Apple Juice, Personalized note.

LET’S TAKE A STAND TOGETHER & HELP THOSE WHO NEED OUR SUPPORT.

Who we've helped to date

Today, we’re a large network of members, facilitating and mobilising acts of kindness across the country.
