About this project

Changing to a greener future one van at a time. 

As our services are more needed than ever, we want to do our bit to use sustainable and renewable energy while serving our community by changing our fleet to electric vans. This will enable us to help even more people by providing furniture, clothing, food and other essentials Free of Charge to the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our immediate society. 

With a low emission zone already in effect and fully enforced by June 2024, an electric vehicle will enable us to still serve the whole city.
