Food Security status in the area.
Blikkiesdorp is a temporary relocation area near Cape Town, approximately 50km outside of the city, has 3000 under-resourced families who have lived there in abject poverty since 2007. Many of the residents do not qualify for social housing. Amidst the appalling living conditions, high unemployment rate, substance abuse, gangsterism and other criminal activities, there is a sense of hopelessness that perpetuates the cycle of poverty.
The community identified their own specific needs for assistance such as food security, social services, pre-school and healthcare.
