Project support in the form of money is always welcome but if you cannot afford this option you are welcome to send us essential items instead to support these communities.
This is a short list of essential items.
To send it to us you can contact us on the Contact form on the Home page or the Contact page:

Essentials list:
Canned food (Check expiry date) and other non-perishables,
Any clothes including rain suits, Blankets, mobile type gas stoves, Gas cylinders, small fridges, bicycles and my personal favourite, toys for kids especially soccer balls and whatever else you feel can help a family in need.

We are able to assist in picking up items in a 100 km radius from Wellington, South Africa but further than that alternative arrangements needs to be made.
Why is this so important ?
The communities we serve has a very low to zero income level.  Here are some quick facts from Stats SA which highlights the situation:
30.4 Mil poor 55.5% of Populous

Some of the reasons is:
Inadequate access to clean water and nutritious food, little or no access to livelihoods or jobs, conflict, lack of infrastructure and limited capacity of the government.  

One of the biggest problems we are still fighting, is alcoholism Ref: The negative effects of the "Tot System", also known as the "Dop System" which was introduced in South Africa (Mostly Western Cape) by the European settlers of the seventeenth century and was finally banned in the 1990's.
The greatest love

God brings hope to the people, but we are the hands and feet to make His love tangible.  This is the greatest reason why we help in any way we can.

The only way to save a nation is to introduce them to our Saviour (Jesus Christ) and great provider "Jehovah Jireh" (God will provide as for Abraham in Genesis 22).

Through our hands God stop a hunger pain, stop people from sleeping cold and give people hope so that they can gather the courage to find a job or create their own income and stop children and women from being abused for these reasons.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
