Cape Flats Heroines

Personal message

This group of mostly women called Echo Neighborhood watch of all ages are volunteering their time and safety for the safety of our community unselfishly. They sacrifice their lives everyday, from getting up at 4 in the morning to look out for those on their way to work, to patrolling until 3 in the early hours of the next day for the safety of our youth.

When schools closes for holidays, they try their utmost best to facilitate the kids, organising holiday programs so as our kids do not wander the streets, falling into negative things surrounding our community on the Cape Flats, but kids need to eat too, and deserve a form of motivation like a toy or something, to keep them coming to programs. Majority of these women are unemployed mothers, surviving on pension and disability grants and simply cannot afford anything else to give these kids but their time.

I am not part of this group of volunteers as I'm a full time student and mother, but I am grateful to these mothers and fathers for looking out for everyone in our community. I would like to surprise them by making life a bit easier for them, by not going from shop to shop asking for donations for the kids' holiday program, so anything will do.
