Cancer could not hold me back from getting up to serve those in need, help us open a bigger place of safety for suicidal children that come out of rape and abuse and for women in need of safety , these children does not cope in children's homes they need a HOME.
We know! we seen it every day. We, Matthew and Marion Peake, are the husband and wife couple running NPO Helping Those in Need in East London, South Africa. Read more please.
Matthew and Marion Peake serve East London's communities that are overlooked with povity.
We know how it feels to go to bed hungry due to poor life choices, drug abuse, affairs until Jesus came and rescued us and set us free to forgive,love and comfort.
Daily we find raped small children and some being pimped out for drugs by their mothers, neglected and heavily abused. We witnessing children needing to be rescued but we have no house of our own. We reside in a 2 bedroom rented home that we blessed with from our church to live in. We currently have 8 rescued children and our 2 daughters all in our two bedroom home with 1 bathroom.
We both stepped out in faith to be a voice for broken women and children but can not afford to purchase a bigger home nor rent a bigger home and need your HELP PLEASE....
We are faced with saying we have no space to rape, trafficked and abused women and children due to space which is sad knowing we have so much love to give. Our city's children's homes are so full that the children do not get a home setting and this is why we want a bigger home to give the broken children a chance in life. Family outings, teaching them how to fish ect. In a children’s home when you turn 18 years of age you have to leave these homes due to space, safe houses have reached capacity so these children are pushed from foster home to foster home "if " there is even one available, of which 99% of the time there is not, resulting in these beautiful children being left to suffer with nowhere to go.
Over and above all we a couple that collects leftover food from stores, communities and individuals on Facebook to feed hungry children in extreme impoverished areas and homes where moms and dads leave their 7 year old daughters to look after their 2 year old siblings, these are the outcries we help as we know what it feels like to have nothing in your tummy so badly that the hunger in your belly burns.
East London has no shelter for the homeless or those who loose it all and just stuck. We feed and cloth the homeless and those just in a tight spot.
We are not wanting to offer a safe house nor children's home but a HOME for the women and children whose souls and hearts have been ripped apart from abuse and neglect, we want to restore with LOVE and COMPASSION and the great JOY of Jesus Christ this is what sets us apart from a children's home and safe home, we have seen the difference a MOM and DAD figure does vs a Children's home no matter the amount.
We go out to feed hungry children on the streets with our kids, and this has become such an impact of humbleness and gratitude, having undergone a Double Mastectomy just few months ago and having chemotherapy for breast cancer, i know life is short. We are fighting a tough faith battle for my health and our hearts bleed to save as many women and children as possible.
God is greater than any battle, trial and tribulation that life throws at you.
We have a "Passion" to see lives changed and None of these women and children asked to be in the positions they're in, making it even more of a must to save these lives from certain death giving them hope for tomorrow, giving them love as if they were our own children and teaching them what it means to love without worry. No one adopts kids over 10 years old right? We want to love these children that feel unworthy that feel unwanted.
Helping those in Need was founded on the verse….Matthew 25:35-36.
Let us be MOM and DAD to these broken children who have been thrown out as garbage.
Lives can be changed through our ministry – but we need help to do this please.
We have no funds of our own, and any funds we raise goes to immediate needs. When you are faced with either saving money or providing baby formula to a mom who, with despairation in her eyes, is feeding baby powder with sugar water to her newborn, we choose to give till it hurts as the bible says we should.
Please partner with us as we invest in the lives of the women and children we see, on a daily basis, in desperate need. An investment with Helping Those in Need is an investment into the future of South Africa.
