Support families in need with monthly donations

Each family we visit affects us because of a different reason, each story with its own potency because of the raw uniqueness in circumstance. One man gently asked for a moment when we knocked on his door, he was bathing and needed to dress before welcoming our parcel into his home. When we finally placed the bags on the floor, we couldn't fathom how he could have possibly bathed in this 3 by 3 room. Another, an old lady consumed by alcoholism and when entering her house we COULD understand why she drinks; if we lived in those conditions we would too. Another, we watched 3 small girls innocently playing in a pit outside their hut and we got to thinking about their futures! Did they have shoes? Can they write? Will they get to go to school? Do they even know dreams exist and sometimes they come true?

We decided these particular families needed more!
Today we're looking for generous people: individuals, couples, friends, families, to become guardians to our poorest families and seize a unique opportunity to expand your circle of compassion to those who don't even know when their next meal will be or have to put buckets down to catch the rain coming through the holes in their roofs. All we need you to do is open your hearts and throw your light to those living in darkness, trusting us to deliver your kind donation to the families who need it the most at the time when we receive your support!
Lets cure hunger and start ticking off crucial wishlist items these families daren't even dream about, items we take for granted every single day!

The Ndlovu's Story

This is the story of a family who had nothing and now have even less...
We trekked to a hut of a family that urgently needed help. As we approached we saw an elderly gentleman propped up by a stick, fragile and bent over, hand pressed on his thigh as he waved us through the threshold of everything him and his family had!
Eleven branches of his tree sought cover from the rainfall, huddled in the centre of a single circular room. Shocked to see the elderly man with such pronounced physical disabilities join them on the cold stone floor, we studied their conditions in which they all lived.
Sat dressed (barely) in holed clothes in the fading light of the day with only candles to guide them through the night, we noticed some with worn out shoes and some with none at all. We noticed two well-loved black pots perched on a fire created from just wood and timber in anticipation of the food we were bringing, so that they could eat that night.
But mostly we noticed a single bed, just ONE bed for 11 people!
Fast forward to today and we found out that on the 17th March 2021 their home was washed away by recent floods… now all 11 adults and children are homeless with absolutely nothing at all!
These families' living conditions are all too common and they desperately need help on a scale that simple dwarfs us. So now, we turn to you to help us rebuild their home and give them a better life.
Support Families is our initiative that will do just that. Together, lets change their whole world!
