EERSTERUST WELFARE ORGANIZATION FOR THE AGED
EWOFA (Eersterust Welfare Organistation for the Aged and registered NPO) is in dire need of funding. This facility serves the poorest of the poor in this community,our elders.
Currently they have been taking care of our elderly residents with only their government pension. They need R8730 per month,per resident,to take care of each resident.
They currently only receiving R1700 per resident,which is our residents monthly government pension. They applied for additional funding from the Dept of Social Services,but they only been approved for an additional R1300 for 42 residents.
They have 66 residents. This brings the amount to R3000 for 42 residents. They still haven’t received the additional funding,they are waiting since last year.
Huis Dawid’s closed down, which is also a government Old Age Home. This was as a direct result of lack of funding. EWOFA has been instructed to take 12 of this institution’s residents into EWOFA Old Age Home.
If they do not raise the funds or find an Angel donor soon,they might face closure of the much needed facility. With the last Financial Audit it was predicted that they could face closure within the next year or two.
They provide a service for the poorest of the poor in Eersterust who does not have the financial means to go to a private facility. This facility is very needed in this community and cares for a diverse community of residents.
Our request is for any assistance,financial or in kind. The facility is great need as is our Elders that are patients and residents at EWOFA.
On the 27th July 2019 they will be hosting there annual fundraiser. Any donations or sponsorsships are urgently needed. This is a short term resolve.
