Based in Johannesburg, Hearts of Hope operates a home for vulnerable children. The non-profit also runs education and therapy programmes, including the Wendywood Development Centre.
Uber Eats has experienced a large increase in app usage and deliveries since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In August, the company revealed that since March 2020, deliveries of groceries and essential products have increased by 1860%.
Purchases of essential products such as toilet paper, bread, and personal care goods such as deodorant also experienced large increases.
