Personal message

My name is Carin and I live in Midrand.

Since the start of the Lockdown, I've been deeply concerned about the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis on the most vulnerable members of South African society. 

I selected Ubuhle Bezwe - an orphanage in Tembisa - as the recipient of funds raised from this campaign. The founder and director Barbra cares for 40 children, including disabled and HIV positive children. She receives almost no support from the government. The individuals who were assisting her are battling the economic impact of the Lockdown themselves. The churches that were assisting her are still closed. 

Barbara is very careful with the money she receives, and manages to spend no more than R3000 each week on groceries. We have kept 40 children fed for 2 months thus far. Now, we require funds for June. 

All donated funds are transferred directly to the bank account of Ubuhle Bezwe, or to Econocom foods for the purchase of nutrient-rich e'Pap for the children.

My name is Carin. I'm deeply concerned about the hunger that the Covid-19 crisis has created. I've chosen to assist an orphanage in Tembisa that cares for 40 children, including disabled children until they are able to secure a new corporate sponsor. The orphanage is currently reliant on this campaign to feed their children. Please join hands with me in doing so.
