Guest : Moerieda Joubert

Moerieda Joubert’s mother understood the importance of connecting with people. And
what better way to do that than by sharing a meal? Even though she had Parkinson’s,
she would prepare food for the local old-age home out of her own pocket. After her
passing, Joubert has proved the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Imprinted with a sense of goodwill, Joubert founded Statice Square Senior in Cape Town
to build a community from companionship and love. For the past 15 years, she’s been
providing scrumptious five-course meals and organising entertainment for the elderly.
“We try to make them as happy as possible because no one deserves to feel alone,”
Joubert says. “They just want someone to care, to give them a little time, to remind them
that life isn't over.”
A pensioner herself, Joubert uses her limited funds to continue her mother’s legacy. “I
always tell my children, ‘I’m poor but we must make the time’,” she says. Going beyond
her means, Joubert is nourishing people with kindness and creating priceless
opportunities to break bread with others. “We all have something to give, even if it’s just
time,” she says.
