Meals on Wheels was established in East London in 1964
The purpose at that time was to provide meals to the elderly in the community.
The programme has since then evolved into a National programme targeting
the poorest of the poor and vulnerable person in South Africa.
In September 2009 MOWCS received their new NPO registration certificate.
All six area offices also received their NPO registration certificates by
October 2009. The new National Director was appointed in July 2009.
Meals on Wheels affiliates range from well established, financially well supported to the truly poor.
These affiliates render service from one day per week to five days per week
depending on the need of the community and the funding that is available.
The following six areas are divisions of MOWCS SA
which serve the interest of the poorest of the poor and those
in need in the nine provinces of South Africa
All the Areas, have Executive Directors as well as other competent staff who take care of the administration within the provinces under their jurisdiction. Each Area is registered with its own fund-raising authorization.
Within the territorial boundaries allocated to the Area, this functions as the coordinating body of affiliates, many of which are also registered with their own NPO status. Those, which are not registered, operate as projects of the Area.
The major concentration of affiliate activities are in the Eastern and Western Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng. The Areas and registered Affi liates and all of the Projects, submit their own reports to the Department of Social Development, and thus all the details of their activities are reported separately.

ROBYN DU TOIT
Good Day I would like to introduce myself, I’m Robyn Du Toit, born and bred in Kimberley. I obtained my degree in B.Com Accounting at the end of 2013 from the University of the Free State. I did my internship for a year, at the Department of Economic Development and Tourism in Management Accounting, from July 2014 – June 2015. It was a great experience as it was very informative and I managed to learn a lot as well. I am currently not married and have no kids, maybe in the near future; only God knows what He has planned for me. I enjoy being active. I go to the gym daily and I enjoy jogging too, it helps me clear my head and it makes me feel good about myself.
