Will you help us to collect rainwater from our roof?

 

 

We recently visited Aunty Frida’s day care centre for little ones outside Cape Town and we knew we had to turn to our friends for help right away.

South Africa’s in the grip of one of our worst droughts in decades – and it’s hitting communities across the country. And it’s no different at this humble crèche.

Twenty-five children from this poor community come here every day – to learn, to play in safety and to have their only nutritious meals of the day while their parents are at work.

At the moment strict water restrictions are putting a strain on the water supply at the crèche. We’re sure you can imagine how much water’s needed for cooking, washing up, cleaning, toilet facilities and hand washing for 25 children.

And it doesn’t help that some days are sweltering – with temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius!

Every drop of water needs to be carefully used – and conserved. Because anyone who exceeds their daily water limit faces hefty fines – and that’s something Aunty Frida just can’t afford!

We want need to find a solution – and we’re hoping you will too by making your donation here.

And we think I’ve got the answer: to install 750-litre rainwater-collecting tanks to catch any scarce rain that may fall.

You see, because when – and if – there are good rains, it’s just not enough to have an impact on drought-stricken areas, or to fill the dams.

At the moment we’re literally wasting precious water every time there’s a downpour. But if we can harvest the rain, we’re on our way to a solution!

Please say you’ll help with your donation made here?

Your gift will be used to buy water tanks for the crèche, so any scarce rainwater can be collected and saved for later use.

Your contribution – big or small – will be a true blessing in drought-ravaged areas.

REFLECTIONS – BEING AT HOME

One of the greatest stories ever told never actually happened. It was fiction. But we know that fiction may speak truths in the clearest and most convincing [and convicting] manner possible. The story is the parable that Jesus told of THE PRODIGAL SON. [more]


 

A SMALL CHANGE

At our recent Strategic Planning HOPE Africa decided to change the last word in our full name from Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Employment to Empowerment.  This was done to reflect what our work is currently all about.  While we feel that employment is important, we rather empower and equip people with the necessary skill to find employment.
