This project will pay for a new home in the Refilwe Community, South Africa for 12 orphaned children and their caregivers who will play a direct role in their education, care, love and nourishment.
Refilwe provides a safe and structured environment for children in this severely disadvantaged community devasted by aids. Children between the ages of 5 and 12 will grow up in a safe and loving family environment with access to all programs that Refilwe offers – education, medical care, food and will remain at Refilwe until they are able to fend for themselves. Helping these children will offer hope that their cycle of poverty will be broken and for their offspring as well.
Your donation will pay to refurbish existing buildings with new electrical and sanitation systems along with a new interior with fridges, washing machines and furniture for 12 children and their caregivers
By breaking the cycle of poverty for these 12 children you will you will provide hope and a chance for a new life to the next generation and their dependents as well.
"Refilwe is attempting to provide a loving home for aids orphans and abused children. Each home will house 6 children cared for by a house mother a departure from the usual institutional orphan care". - Dr Brian LaTrobe, Project Leader
