Orphans Trust - Other Support
Apart from looking after our current orphaned children, the Orphans Endowment Fund has started supporting other orphaned and vulnerable children organizations in South Africa including the following:
The Orphans Endowment fund donates R25 000 to the St Theresa’s Home-based in Mayville, Durban
St Theresa’s Children’s Home is one such facility that currently provides professional care for orphaned and vulnerable boys from the ages 3 to 18 years from poor communities across the province of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Many families that are already poverty-stricken and are struggling to provide for the basic needs of their families are unable to provide such services at home and do not have the resources to send children to facilities that charge for such services.
The Orphans Endowment fund donates R25 000 to Malvern Child and Youth Care Centre
Malvern Child and Youth Care Centre provides a safe and nurturing home for 72 children who have been orphaned, abused or neglected, as well as those suffering from chronic life-threatening illnesses or disability. The children are provided with safe and secure accommodation, daily cooked meals, counselling services, and much more. The children attend 9 schools in the surrounding area of Malvern, and the organisation is exempted from paying school fees but have to pay for excursions and other related activities that the children participate in.
The Orphans Endowment fund donates R25 000 to the St Philomenas based in Berea, Durban
St. Philomena’s was established with the aim of providing developmental care for orphaned and vulnerable children (OVCs) and youth in Durban, KZN.
St. Philomena’s works with all members of the community and has projects with special emphasis on:
- Children between the ages of 7 to 13 years old
- Primary caregivers of children and their family members
- Orphans & vulnerable children 6 – 18 years old
- Orphans & vulnerable girls 18 – 21 years old
