Mossel Bay Haven Night Shelter

 

Mossel Bay Haven Night Shelter

The Haven’s mission is to get the homeless home. They currently have 80 residents, with close on 200 having passed through their facility in the past year. A number of residents have been successfully reunited with their families, or have found jobs and/or accommodation. They work in conjunction with The Haven organisation in Cape Town, but still rely heavily on donations from the public.

 


Heavens Missing Angels Feeding Schemes

Heaven’s Missing Angels Feeding Schemes

This organisation was founded in 2010, in an attempt to alleviate the poverty crisis in the Northern areas of Port Elizabeth. Since then, three soup kitchens have been successfully started in the Uitenhage area. The aim is not only to feed impoverished children, but to start motivational and spiritual workshops, arts and crafts, day care centres and various environmental projects to help people plant their own vegetable gardens and run recycling enterprises to sustain themselves.

 

Maranatha Playschool

Maranatha Playschool

The school caters mainly for children (from as young as 1 year old) from the Motherwell area and currently serves about 150 children, many of whom are disabled, suffer from illnesses or who’s families can’t afford school fees. They are given schooling by 4 trained teachers and receive porridge in the mornings, fully cooked meals at lunchtime and snacks in the afternoon and are often taken on outings to teach them more about life outside of home and school.
