I am David’s sister, both our parents have passed away and I am now taking care of him. He lived with me for two years but it became clear he needed more out of life, a sense of purpose, and companionship/comradery.
Camphill Village provides a safe environment in which to live and work for between 80 and 90 intellectually challenged adults, so that they can experience a meaningful and fulfilling life. It is set on a farm, 40km north of Cape Town and has 13 houses and several enterprises in which Residents work.
The cost of life on the farm amounts to R6 200 per month + SASSA Disability Grant.
David has flourished since being at Camphill and has come in to his own. He has made friends and he works in the herbal workshop Monday to Friday and always helps out wherever he can. He is very involved in all activities on the farm.
Any contribution big or small, once-off or monthly will allow David to continue his stay at Camphill where he has flourished and lives life to the fullest.
