We are involved in the community in a deeper way than individual projects, helping when crises occur (which happens quite regularly eg 10 homes burnt down in July), visiting with the ill and bereaved and bringing Jesus' love and hope. After 10 years, friendships have grown and the intangible aspect of the project is immense.
We have a number of other initiatives:
- A thriving sewing club led by a wonderful lady, Thembi, who is wheelchair bound, and is always full of thanks and encouragement
- Woollies food delivered once a week to orphan headed households and others in need by volunteers
- The soup kitchen which feeds 150 a day and is run by Sbu with support from Meals on Wheels.
- Support for the large Siyathuthuka vegetable garden which helps feed the children at the creche as well as destitute families
- Other support for those desperate in the community, for example, adult disposable nappies, making it easier to look after aged or ill relatives in the home and washable sanitary pads for the teenage girls.
