Pro Deo Care Group consists of a group of volunteers who has rendered various services to the aged, disabled and cancer sufferers on the South Coast over the past 21 years.
The organisation relies solely on the support and goodwill of individuals and businesses to raise funds for these much-needed services. These funds are specifically applied towards the home-based care of cancer sufferers and frail aged people in the community across all races.
Home-based care costed this organisation more than R800 000 in 2018.
This year's budget exceeds R1-million due to the escalating need among people that cannot afford frail care services and do not have medical insurance.
Bennie Kruger and his cycle team (consisting of businessmen and women) will endure a grueling Cycle Tour (from 2-6 October 2019) of 847km (around 180km per day) from Johannesburg to San Lameer to raise funds. This is one of our largest annual fund-raisers and we would much appreciate donations towards this worthy cause.

Pro Deo Care Group
Pro Deo is a non-profit organization, based on the lower south coast of South Africa, we raise money to render home-based care to frail and cancer patients.
Last year we raised just over R320 000 through the cycle tour alone, however with the growing demand for health care for those who are unable to afford it, it is of the utmost importance to raise more awareness and funds. In 2018 we needed just over R800 000 for the people that were treated. This year it is estimated that we will need over R1 000 000.
