Over the past week, residents of Kwa-Zulu Natal and Gauteng in South Africa have been affected by riots, looting and political unrest. More than 45,000 businesses have been affected and trucks have been burnt, disrupting the supply of food, medicine and fuel. As a result, millions of people are facing food insecurity. This comes on top of a devastating third wave of COVID-19 that has engulfed South Africa. Shop closures and long queues have left the most vulnerable communities exposed to food shortages and subsequent hunger.

JAM teams are mobilizing to assist an initial 10,000 families with food hampers to be distributed across KZN and Gauteng. To donate NOW and help provide food hampers to South Africans in crisis, click here: http://intags.co/MnYYe

"The best value in life is to live for others.” – Ann Pretorius, JAM Founding Director

South Sudan holds rich agricultural opportunity with the mighty Nile River running through it, but the people of this country have also been plagued with conflict, disease, droughts and violence. At the Imvepi Refugee Camp for South Sudanese asylum seekers in Uganda, our kitchen gardens are changing lives. JAM teams help to provide vegetables for nutrition, agriculture training for families to grow their own gardens and hope for a better future.
