Tintswalo Lodges has launched the #TintswaloCares campaign by taking on ‘Cans with Purpose’ – a food drive supporting vulnerable schoolchildren in South Africa.

“Since schools have been forced to close, children are already experiencing the devastating impact of the temporary termination of the National Schools feeding scheme, as the majority of these children rely on this one meal a day as their sole source of nutrition,” said a statement from Tintswalo, highlighting why they chose to support this initiative.

‘Friends of Tintswalo’ is a non-profit organisation founded to connect each Tintswalo lodge with a specific beneficiary. These range from rhino, wild dog and shark conservation projects to community support programmes and, most recently, Cans with Purpose.

Those wishing to support the food drive can make donations through the Afrika Tikkun organisation, which, through its national network, assists more than 9 000 children and their families with food and care packs.
