I would like to introduce Harmonie Oord, a residential facility for older persons, to you. Harmonie Oord is a non-profit organization in Sunnyside, providing accommodation for independent older persons with limited means, mainly state pensioners that receive only R1,600 per month and others with a low income with no place to stay.
The cost to keep one resident here is approximately R2,100 per month, of which their boarding fee covers only 60%. That is why we are very dependent on donations to provide proper meals as well as certain other services to our residents. We don’t receive any grants from the government to assist us. We have limited funds to buy food if we don’t receive enough donations. We appreciate any form of donations as we currently care for 192 residents; we have 75 male and 117 female residents.
