Missionvale USA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poor and underprivileged of South Africa. This organization supports the efforts of the Missionvale Care Center in Port Elizabeth, South Africa to provide hope and a positive future through sustainable programs focused on education, nutrition, healthcare, skills development and shelter.

In Missionvale township, South Africa, food is a constant
concern every day of the year, and especially critical this year due to
COVID-19 and extremely high unemployment rates. For the Missionvale Care
Center, food is the most difficult commodity to raise money for, yet, it is the
most basic necessity and critical for survival.
Missionvale USA is committed to doing what we can to provide
hope and make the very basic food staples available to the people. Prior to COVID-19, Missionvale Care Center
provided approximately 720 food parcels each week to the most needy families in
the community. During COIVD, that number increased to 900 weekly food parcels.
A food parcel consists of a can of fish, can of beans, maize meal, tea bags,
sugar, and soap.
The Care Center also provided a half loaf of bread and a
scoop of soup powder to on average 700 people per day. During COVID, that
number increased to approximately 1,000 families receiving soup and bread each
