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.

Another rough day in the squatter camp. Trying to get the mother of this baby to give this little one to her aunt to look after. Aunt looks after her other 2 (older one pictured here). Our priority is 'best interests of the child', it has to be. Mom can barely care for herself and has had the most tragic life,she has known such violence. Story is very complicated, but the idea is to assist her and not to take the child away from her. Aunt lives a kilometer away. ...

I was contacted by a desperate mom in Zambia who urgently needs a chair for her daughter who was born with cerebral palsy. No treatment there, no help at all. How to get the chair to Zambia was the challenge.
Melody Eggar the most industrious and kind compassionate soul- you have arranged transport for a child's wheelchair to Zambia!!!! Steff Myers yoh...you 2 pulled this one off!
Bless you and whomever has agreed to take this chair for little Prisca. She is 11 years old, born premature, her legs are badly affected. With no intervention those legs are bent at the hips and knees. She is heavy now and her mom can't carry her on her back anymore. Children like this little one have totally normal intelligence... Not going out is devastating.
Melody.... You have done such a huge something here. Now to access the chair. Need to cover costs and purchase it. Lenny Chita
