Charka, Raising Hope

Charka, Raising Hope

Personal message

Charka Brikkets and "braai"go hand-in-hand in South Africa. Heritage Day in South Africa is also sometimes referred to a "Braai Day" and we at Charka always try to do something really amazing on this wonderful day.

In one word: HOPE.

Mzansi, Suid-Africa, South-Africa, our Motherland, through all the days that come to break us down, YOU are the one that remains with us.

Being a South African does not only mean rugby, biltong, boerewors, braais and Table Mountain:

It means knowing fear and forgiveness, having the South African sky burning brightly in your eyes and finding the light when nobody else can.

It is singing our National Anthem in its five languages and feeling the pride burning in your heart. It is laughing at everything because as a South African you know the tide will turn. It is dancing, dancing in unity, having our Motherland quake underneath our feet.

But most importantly, the golden thread that UNITES ALL SOUTH AFRICANS…


Charka chose to team up with Chad Nathan of Raising Hope for Heritage Day / Braai Day 2020.

Chad is an inspiration to all of us at Charka and certainly to all South Africans.

The funds raised from our campaign (minus our operational costs) will be donated to a charity of Chad's association/choosing.

My name is Chad Nathan and I have been documenting the Coronavirus lockdown since March 27th. Through documenting this, I have seen the impact this disease has had on the less fortunate in South Africa. I have been working alongside these organizations the last few weeks and have witnessed all the amazing work they are doing for these people. I am now hoping to raise R300 000 to help them continue to give back to those in need.
