By Law (NPO Act 71 of 1997) we are suppose to refer to ourselves as Directors, but we are actually just 3 ordinary people, that want to do God’s work and no glory should come to us.

It is with great pleasure that we present our team:

Carina, Tialet and Cornelia

Carina de Fries

Carina is a Dietitian who is currently doing her community service year in Paarl Hospital. She has a passion for “feeding people”, simply put. She has a remarkable character and anyone that meets her will notice her kindness and compassion immediately. 

Carina acts as our secretary. She has many roles in the NPO, but what we love most about her is the way she keeps the ball rolling with regular “check-up’s and check-in’s”. She will be taking lead on the planting of vegetable gardens.

Tialet Potgieter

Tialet is a teacher at a special needs school and obtained her Bachelors of Education in foundation phase.

In her full-time job, she is passionate to give each child a chance to grow into their full potential. To do that, a child needs to be healthy emotionally and physically. A healthy diet is necessary to strengthen their bodies, to take up the challenges of normal growth and following their dreams.  Undernourished children are at high risk of permanently stunted growth and development (because they explore less and interact less with other people).

Tialet will be of great value to the team due to her love for children, her passion for life as well as her positive outlook on life.

She is full of energy and keeps the team pumped!

Cornelia Owens

The lady who had the vision, Cornelia Owens, our chairperson. 

Cornelia is a Dietitian with a special interest in pediatrics, so children’s health is her number one priority. When you talk to her you can hear the urge to help those who are less fortunate. Her heart really is for the kids. She has three kids of her own so she has become a pro multitask-er. Somehow, she still finds the time to play around with recipes and make delicious and nutritious snacks for the children who we are helping.
