My name is Chriszelda Pinto (39) and I live in Observatory.
I am raising funds for Lion Heart Ministries. I am the founder of this movement.
We need to raise funds for our life skills programmes and a van for transportation.
Our inspiration to fundraise is that we work daily with young ladies, children, and women from poverty-stricken communities who cannot come into our area to get the necessary help they need. We offer counselling, support, regular camps and get away to do life skills and empowerment workshops. Transport is always an issue when we having to travel daily and weekly. We also pick up donations that the community gives us to hand over to struggling families and individuals.
Breakdown of costs:
Second-hand vehicle R180 000
Stationary, underwear, and toiletries for victims of rape and abuse - R20 000
Your donation will mean that women and children will be picked up safely and dropped off at their destinations after the sessions. We won’t have to constantly look for stationary and sanitary donations from the public, which can sometimes be a challenge. Transport will also be sorted in terms of our regular camps and life skills weekends away. Daily or weekly donations will also be able to be picked up with safety.
The funds will go directly to Lion Heart Ministries for them to purchase transport and to buy much-needed toiletries, stationery and use some money for petrol for all their workshops, camps, and trips.
