We received the following letter...
Hi DJ Fresh & team,
I would like to nominate a 61yr old phenomenal community leader Moeriedah Dien.
She's got a heart of gold filled with love and compassion. For her age this remarkable community leader is selflessly doing incredible work to support and empower Victims of Gender Based Violence and transforming vulnerable lives in the most disadvantaged communities of Steenberg, Retreat, Lavender Hill and surrounding areas.
She creates safe spaces for victims and support victims experiencing trauma e.g. shootings etc. Her organisation Dews of Quietness operates from a container driving awareness programmes in schools (e.g. anti- bullying) and work with perpetrators and journeys with traumatised people in a holistic way ensuring they are connected to any other professional services (e.g. Trauma Centre).
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic she runs various community kitchens which support +500 vulnerable people on a daily basis. Sadly, she is facing the challenge of no funds or donations towards food, electricity and gas to continue feeding the huge amount of hungry people. She is battling seeking other resources from family and friends to continue with feeding scheme.
What an incredible human being Moeriedah is. She deserves the best, so chatted to our friends over at Adcock Ingram OTC and they came through really generously with the below:
Adcock is giving Janine an amount of R2,500 for highlighting this local superhero and to Moeriedah an amount of R5,000 to help with her feeding scheme!
Keep up your amazing work, Moeriedah.
947 loves you!
