Personal message

One of the biggest humanitarian crises facing many people in South Africa is the basics like clean running water, electricity, a roof overhead, food on the plate, and access to medicine. 

But you may not realise that many people, in their twilight years, are abandoned by their families who cannot afford to care for them. 

Many of these senior citizens also have Alzheimer's and Dementia. This is where Eden House comes in.

 Eden House provides meals, medicine, accommodation, bedding, clothing, and everything else needed to keep its residents comfortable. But they need help. 

Their current location is on a farm, and they also rely on borehole water running low. They can not run the home much longer without a good water supply. 

Due to financial constraints and lack of donations/funding, Eden is forced to relocate to more affordable premises to prevent the House from closing.

However, to prepare the new premises, they urgently need to raise funds to enable them to do restoration and maintenance before serving as an elderly home on the selected premises.

Some details about the restoration and requirements needed:

1. 4x additional bathrooms (shower, basin, and toilet)

2. 2x additional rooms

3. 2x sliding doors with sidelights

4. 140sqm of ceiling boards

5. Electrical Work

6. Plumbing

7. Walkway from rooms to the main reception/TV room/dining hall

8. Additional tables and chairs for the dining hall

9. Gas stove

10. Tiling of additional rooms and bathrooms

Most important, they need to be self-sustainable concerning electricity. In South Africa, it is very common to have frequent long periods of Load shedding (this is where the power is switched off to share the load). They cannot afford the expenses of running a generator daily. Solar panels/gas geysers and gas stoves are the only way to prevent disruption to people's fragile living conditions.

We will be updating you about the whole process as much as possible and, hopefully, finally, be able to serve and care for the needy elderly people in their community. Every donation, big or small, will help the care of our older generations.

We are forever grateful for your generosity.
