Feedy Needy is an non-governmental organisation that has been in existence for the past 10 years.
Their work is not only restricted to the Phoenix community, but they operate throughout the province of KwaZulu-Natal.
Feedy Needy is not funded by the Department of Social Development and does not receive any other government funding.
Their source of funding is solely from private departments, local businesses and individuals, however, this is becoming stagnant as there are many little organisations that have been mushrooming all over the province.
The number of beneficiaries is extensively increasing at an accelerated space as they take their services to the peripheries of the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

Despite the lack of funds, the organisation continuously endeavours to produce quality service.
Their services are not limited by race, colour, religion, gender or creed and every service beneficiary is served with sheer respect and inherent dignity, without expecting anything in return.
Their aim is to restore the self-esteem of those who are less fortunate than us. December marks their ‘Toy for Joy’ month.
During this campaign, the organisation envisages to visit all provincial hospitals in KZN and hand out a burger meal, sugar free juice and a toy to each child in the paediatric wards. Last year, an astounding 5000 meals were distributed. This year, they endeavour to distribute approximately 10,000 meals.
This can only be realised with your assistance, therefore the organisation asks you to join hands with them by digging deeper into your pockets to bring joy to these children during this festive period.
Your contribution will definitely give them a beacon of hope to uphold their motto ‘Bringing Bright Smiles’ to the little faces. These meals will be distributed from December 18 to 21.
For more information, contact the Toy for Joy hotline on 031 941-5291 or 031 824-6501. Kindly note that donations can be pick up by their drivers or you can contribute via electronic fund transfer (eft) payment. Please indicate Toy for Joy as reference.
A receipt will be issued to you and a section 18 (a) certificate upon your request.
