African Diaspora Forum assists migrants with food parcels

Written by: Neo Koza

The African Diaspora Forum has rallied together to assist migrants who may be struggling through the COVID-19 lockdown.

The forum is supplying food parcels and says it has written to various embassies for assistance.

Clement Manyathela spoke to the forum's chairperson Dr Abdul Karim Elgoni to find out more.

The food parcels compose mainly of the daily needs , things that you need to cook for a family of five or six.
