HH An Add Hope Program Beneficiary

Helping Hands is so blessed to be a beneficiary this year in KFC’s Add Hope Program.

Add Hope, KFC’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiative which started in 2009, brings KFC and their customers together to make a difference. Since its inception seven years ago, it has partnered with 110 beneficiaries across South Africa.

Over 12 million South Africans don’t have access to proper nutrition and go to bed hungry every night, of these, 3.2 million are children. Add Hope is KFC’s commitment to help feed children in South Africa, because they believe a hungry nation can never be a growing one. It feeds over 113 000 children across the country every single day (that’s more people than Soccer City can seat!), so that they can learn, grow and thrive.

KFC gives back too – last year as a company KFC donated R24 million to Add Hope; their customers donated R33 million last year and to date, Add Hope has raised R321 million.

As a beneficiary, Helping Hands received a generous amount of R85,000 to be used to feed children under its care.
