What We Do

Our aim is to use these programmes to change the general prevailing mind set of hopelessness and helplessness existing among our target group.

Many of our beneficiaries live in informal settlements known as squatter camps. Others live in rented shacks erected in the yards of existing houses with no access to water, toilets or electricity. The remainder live in overcrowded hostels with up to 20 people sharing a 2 bedroomed unit. Overcrowding, starvation/malnutrition, illness and a general sense of despair prevails.

They live in abject poverty here in SA, just so that their child can get some sort of medical care and therapy. These are the children I chose to get a nutritional supplement. Not that the SA mothers have it any easier, of course their children will eat as well. The intention was for those brave and anonymous children (who starve, yet live on love). At least those children with broken bodies will have some nourishment. ...
