Ekhaya LaBantwana is a children's home for orphaned, abused and homeless children. It currently houses more than 60 children, most of them which are girls under the age of 14. These children need urgent care and assistance as they currently recieve no incentives from government or any other NGOs. The home is dependent on daily handouts from community members and the little money it receives from social development. With an influx of more than 60 children, it is becoming increasingly impossible to accomodate all the children and provide them with all their needs.
They currently reside in a 6 roomed house, of which 4 of the rooms are bedrooms. Alternative shacks are built outside for the rest of the children.
The home is in desperate need of uniforms for the new school year, books, school shoes and better living conditions.
Any assistance will be appreciated. Each dollar goes a long way.
Under the African proverb of Ubuntu we say, "Umuntu umuntu ka bantu" which translates directly to "A person is a person through other people". Working together, we can achieve much more.
