Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation

Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation believes in the potential of the poor to effect change in their own lives and in our world. Our sponsorship program connects individual sponsors with a child, youth or elderly person in need of encouragement and support. Hope for a sponsorship goes beyond the basics of providing food, education, health care and livelihood programs. It gives families hope that they can create a path out of poverty for their children.

Matla A Bana

www.matlaabana.co.za

Matla A Bana is a charity project initiated and managed by the Callie and Monique Strydom Charity Trust (www.strydomtrust.com). The Callie and Monique Trust were founded upon the return of Callie and Monique Strydom after a 4-month hostage ordeal in Asia. At the end of 2002 Monique Strydom was asked to chair a task team that investigated child rape in South Africa. A need for an organization which could address all the grey areas in the child protection system in South Africa arose and the Strydom Trust undertook to address this need. Matla a Bana is a National organization, with predominant focus in Gauteng and the Western Cape.

Missing Children SA

www.missingchildren.org.za

Missing Children SA was established in March 2007 in response to the kidnapping and brutal murders of Sheldean Human (7) from Pretoria and Anestacia Wiese (12) from Mitchell’s Plain, in an effort to assist and support families finding themselves in similar desperate situations.

Missing Children SA assists the South African Police Service in finding people and creating national awareness.The first 24 hours after a person goes missing, is the most crucial. Our organisation exists to be reactive and to create awareness when a case is reported.  Approximately one thousand four hundred and sixty (1460) children go missing each year – it is a real and present danger and as an organisation we feel it is necessary to ensure that the citizens of South Africa are aware of this threat to the safety of our children.

05_VredeFoundation

The Vrede Foundation

www.vredefoundation.co.za

Our aim is twofold.
1) To generate awareness amongst Young South Africans (aged 15-29) regarding Cancer.
Young people don’t usually think about Cancer! There is often a pre-conceived idea that Cancer only affects Older People. Young people don’t want to think about “dreaded diseases”. As the number of people affected by Cancer continues to rise, we want to share information about the disease, about how to manage the disease and about how to assist those affected by the disease.

2) To raise funds and provide financial aid to Young South Africans with Cancer who do not have medical aid.
Young people do not want to think about the impact that Cancer can have on their lives or their finances. Often they are just not prepared to deal with the financial aspects that arise if they do require treatment! This puts an unimaginable strain on both them and their families at a time when they are already dealing with a lot.
