US$15.00raised of $800,000.00 goal
Mooiplaas squatter camp is situated in Centurion, South Africa. I have a special interest in it, because it is in 'my valley'. I was born and raised in Centurion, of which Mooiplaas is a part. We used to go to Kruger National Park for annual Sunday School picnics. Who would have thought then that it would become the site for a squatter camp? These people were later relocated to Mooiplaas - against their will, but equally so (and more importantly) against the will of the people already living in Mooiplaas.
I have decided to open the Helping Hand page to help feed a section of the residents of the Mooiplaas squatter camp.
For the purpose of this page it should suffice to say many people literally go hungry every day and more especially during this pandemic. With your help we can make a difference in a number of people's lives. There is an existing, reliable infrastructure that we can use to feed hungry tummies, at no extra cost! They are already involved in this community and provide occasional meals. They can provide a basic meal, to Mooiplaas squatter camp, with R1700. If we can raise R5100 per week, they can provide 3 meals per week. At the current exchange rate they need around $100.00 to $150.00 per day, to feed close to 500 people a day!
They also provide rehabilitation and counselling services in this community and are mobilizing the squatters into self-help. I have personally witnessed the joy of the community when someone 'made it out' i.e. got a job and was able to move out of the squatter camp.
Your contribution, big or small, will go towards buying food for these people, as well as other basic needs like toiletries and medication.
We are grateful for every single donation that we may receive. May God bless you abundantly.
