Founded by Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and his wife Rachel, the Kolisi Foundation was established just over a year ago during the hard lockdown.

It aims to provide food, address gender-based violence and improve access to sports and education.

The Kolisi Foundation’s blanket drive is in partnership with Stor-Age, who provides logistical and operational support.

You can drop off new or used blankets (until 19 May) at a Stor-Age branch near you.

Pippa Hudson interviewed Rachel Kolisi.

The majority of South Africans always want to help…

New or second-hand… there are 51 drop-off points… Encourage people to put blankets together… We have nine days to go!
