Just to mention a few - there are many more that need help.

 

Drought Relief to South African farmers was started in Calvinia by Burre Burger and this project has expanded as the need is massive. SA is experiencing its worst drought in 113 years which has had a huge impact on our local farmers. Parts of the Cape Province, especially the Western Cape have been hit hardest. Sadly, both animal and human lives have been lost. Many farmers, who have lost everything, have subsequently given up hope.  Funded by the general public and businesses www.droogtehulp.co.za

 

Family Worship Medical Care Centre (FWC) provides care for the terminally ill living with HIV/AIDS, helping them to live and die with dignity as well as offering health care services and shelter to HIV/Aids infected people in Hursthill.  This area rife with drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancies etc. They also embrace all frail care conditions, step downs and hospice care www.fwchospice.org.za

 

4 Paws is a registered non-profit organisation, established in 2006, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for underprivileged animals by providing shelter, health care, veterinary treatments etc. CIJ created the job opportunity for Lumick the dog walker, which we would love to continue www.4ourpaws.org.za

 

St Martins-in-the-Veld, Rosebank is an essential part of our community, fully involved in everyday living, with several social outreach programmes and activities eg soup kitchen, orphaned and vulnerable children, primary health care clinic, Lotsha and Ukuphula Iketanga prison ministry etc. www.stmartins.co.za

 

St Pauls, Munsieville was established in 1941 near Krugersdorp. There are 30,000 people living in the community and over 80% of them are unemployed, leaving the community very poor. This creates huge challenges for the small team of dedicated parishioners.

 

Vuleka Primary School opened in 1989 as a church based educational project working out of schools on church premises, starting with 59 children from previously disadvantaged communities.  They now educate over 1000 children from grade 000 to matric, offering quality education that is affordable and easily accessible in a safe and secure environment. Donor funding is needed to keep school fees as low as possible www.vulekaschool.co.za
