A “Joy Market” in Jamestown, Stellenbosch, on June 16, 2020. Here people stood in social-distancing lines to pick out free, donated clothing. The market was
organized by a joint Jamestown community taskforce formed in response to families in need during lockdown due to COVID-19. June 16 is Youth Day in South Africa, a public holiday that commemorates the Soweto uprising of 1976. “We responded to the call during lockdown. Our first priority was the kids,” said Arnold Okkers, executive director of Usiko, a Jamestown youth organization. When lockdown started, Usiko began by providing lunch for the 120 kids the organization normally looks after in after-school programs. “Within a week, it doubled to 250,” adds Okkers. The feeding scheme quickly grew to a joint community volunteer effort. The Jamestown volunteer taskforce and supporters have been feeding about 400 people per day here, as many people lost their jobs during lockdown. Okkers says they will be able to scale back the feeding scheme a little bit now, as people have been able to return to work during Level 3 of lockdown. “More and more people are able to care for themselves,” he says.
