My visit to St Joseph’s Home for chronically ill children


2 Comments

Over the weekend I went with The Little Fighters Cancer Trust to St Joseph’s Home For Chronically Ill Children in Montana, Cape Town, to hand out shoes, hats, yoghurts, colouring books, crayons and juices to the sick babies of the home. The LFCT’s Facebook supporters donated just under 200 pairs of new shoes for children with Cancer as part of their “Barefoot for a Day Project”, which culminated in this delivery to the home’s “Daisy Ward”.

This is a wonderful non-profit organization which dedicates itself to relieve some of the heartache and difficulties faced by childhood Cancer-affected families. They support children with Cancer and their families as well as promote Childhood Cancer Awareness. It was founded in 2009 and is a registered NPO with PBO status. I am so honoured to be an ambassador for them and I am looking forward to our first project together, a visit to St Josephs.

Family Health Day

Coming up this week is Rotary International’s amazing initiative, The Rotary Family Health Days (RFHD). Rotary has formed a fantastic partnership with the Department of Health, Coca-Cola, the CDC and USAID in order to host a series of Health Days (across the world) from 9-11 May 2013. On the days the Department of Health will supply qualified people to do completely free testing, screenings and counselling. Rotary’s role is to give as much support and service as possible where needed during the three days. All Rotary Clubs in the world are taking part in this initiative during these three days.

Outreach in South Africa


13 Comments

In 2013, the population of South Africa was 52.98 million people. Of those, there are an estimated 9 million people below the poverty line (less than $1 a day). I can’t hope to change all their lives but I can make a difference. I just look around and it’s easy to find places where I can offer assistance. Every charity deserves exposure. I hope to put the spotlight on some of the ones I have come across. I am in the fortunate position to be affiliated with the Rotary Club of Algoa Bay, as my mother was the President (2011-2012) and is now the AG for District 9370.
