Covid-19 has brought up many challenges. Families are suffering, students experience hunger. However, with the help of Rise Against Hunger (RAH), donating nutritional meal packs, needy students at VUT can cope and hunger is prevented through this gesture.
The donation was coordinated through the office of the Director: Marketing & Public Relations at the Vaal University of Technology on Tuesday, 14 July 2020. RAH has been supporting the VUT Poverty Alleviation Project since 2015, and the relationship is growing from strength to strength. The donation of nutritional meal packs is part of their goal aimed at making Africa a hunger free continent by 2030.
