The plight of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) in remote villages, throughout South Africa, and particularly in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), is appalling. Child headed households are surviving without adequate shelter and without adequate food.

ePap

Thanks to the sterling fundraising efforts of the late Basil Kransdorf, the MD of ePap, funds are raised, for the distribution of ePap to orphans, particularly during long school holidays when the older children are not attending school and don’t have access to at least one meal a day. ┬áThis initiative is managed by the Ndumo Orphans committee and Cheryl Ogilvie from Tshwane University, with her team of student assistants who not only assist in the distribution, but also monitor the impact on the recipients.

How you can make a difference!

When thinking of how you can make life better for these children it is worthwhile to consider that the cost of providing an orphan or vulnerable child with a monthly supply of ePap and food parcels costs around R100.00 – the approximate price of two muffins and two cups of coffee in an average restaurant – food for thought!!
