"Serving Wellness: FGWellness meets the heartwarming stories of Meals on Wheels"


In the bustling heart of community service lies Tygerberg Service Centre for the Aged and Meals on Wheels, a beacon of hope and compassion. As a non-profit organization, their mission is clear: to bring relief to the elderly and extend their services to the broader community in response to growing needs. During our recent visit, we were profoundly moved by the tireless efforts and impactful initiatives of Tygerberg Meals on Wheels. Feeding Schemes were started around 1994 and soup, bread, meals, food parcels, and clothes were distributed to needy families and children.

A Nurturing Haven:

Tygerberg Meals on Wheels stands out as a humanitarian initiative dedicated to alleviating the struggles faced by our country's elderly population. The Service Centre extends its compassionate services beyond its original purpose, responding dynamically to the evolving needs of the community it serves.

A Source of Hope based on Felicia's Inspiring Story:

Felicia shared her heartwarming story, a testament to overcoming challenges and finding hope in the darkest moments. She emphasized the importance of chosen family, those who choose to love and be there for you. Felicia spoke passionately about combating loneliness and the transformative power of choosing to heal.

Contributing to the Library:

In a heartwarming gesture, Felicia sponsored two copies of "Prison Child," a poignant book that speaks to the resilience of the human spirit, and triumph over adversity. These books were added to the organization's library, enriching the resources available to those seeking knowledge and inspiration. This contribution is a testament to the generosity and goodwill that permeates the Tygerberg Meals on Wheels community.
