On Monday 10th January, following a frugal supper, PP Kitty Brook, her granddaughter, Kristina, and Kristina's partner, Akeem, gave a talk on 'Malcolm's Soup Kitchen'.
'Malcolm's Soup Kitchen' or Umtha Welanga (Rising Sun) was set up in the township of Khayelitsha in Western Cape in South Africa. 2000 by Kitty's late husband, Rtn. Malcolm Brook and a group of local Community and child care workers.
Much more than a soup kitchen, the aim was to provide psychological, spiritual, and above all, food and medical support for women and children infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
Today the initiative acts as a social services provider for the township and
Kristina and Akeem visited Khayelitsha last year and witnessed the growth of the township and the increase in demand for the services provided by Umtha Welanga.
Members donated their normal meal costs to Rotary International's Foundation Charity.
