Photos For Food: Wildlife photos to feed people in South AfricaBy ATTA®
In an effort to help alleviate hunger in and across the local South African communities, a group of friends and nature guides have collaborated to bring you an amazing collection of wildlife photographs, through Photos For Food initiative.
The economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has hit South Africa's rural communities hard. When tourist would once flock to the lodges of South Africa for wildlife safaris, employing staff that would help support these communities, the lockdown on the country has left many people jobless and without income.
The Photos For Food initiative sees 50 percent of all purchases contributing to food parcels put together and distributed by Nourish. By purchasing one digital wildlife image, you will be feeding a family of four for an entire week.
Nourish is a not-for-profit organisation registered with the Department of Social Development in South Africa. They are based and focused on the rural villages and communities in Mpumalanga, one of the most poverty stricken and under-served areas.
Founder of Photos For Food and safari guide, Jonty Bozas, said, "we decided to do our part in helping the humanitarian efforts in fighting hunger, by donating some of our best wildlife photographs."
The photographs for sale are being added to regularly, offering more choices of sensational, stunning images that capture the beauty of South Africa's wildlife. Since the launch of Photos For Food on 25th of April, the initiative has been able to send over USD$1900 to Nourish, that contributed to the food parcels they have been putting together.
