Support a student: Sponsors needed for UJ food parcel scheme
Imagine trying to study and putting in long hours in the library on an empty stomach.
That's the reality for thousands of university students in South Africa.

'Remember And Give' helps meet students basic needs by providing food parcels to fellow scholars.
RAG APK chairperson Bongani Senne says they rely on sponsors to meet their monthly targets.
