HSA Hope Project

Hundreds of children are going to school hungry, exhausted and poorly clothed because their parents are so strapped for cash. Starving pupils dressed in ­threadbare clothes and shabby shoes stealing food from classmates - it sounds like a scene from a horror movie, but this is the reality of life, and still a reality even in the new decade of 2020. there has been an increase in the number of pupils turning up to school without having eaten breakfast or the night before.

Some are so hungry they have resorted to stealing food from others, some even stealing extra keeping it for their siblings at home.
None of this is because the parents are lacking in parental skills or are poor managers of their budget, as they have no budget to rely on or earn so little, it is a daily struggle just to keep a roof over their children’s heads, with living expenses going up and jobs getting cut on a regular basis. These children already suffer so much, when they get to school, they get teased and bullied for not wearing the correct uniform and not having the necessary school needs. Please help us make a change in a child’s life. The children and families that we assist is located across South Africa.

If they have no or little lunch, we provide them with one but who knows what they get for dinner? And what happens in the holidays? That is why Helping SA will be helping these children and their families with food parcels, furniture, clothing and whatever they may need we will also be assisting in helping to find the parents employment.
We assist families with children with weekly/monthly food parcels; it becomes difficult for children to stay positive about the future when they don’t even know when and where they will receive their next meal, it cost us +/- R1800 per month per family for their food parcel, that is why we rely on the public for donations so that we can be able to do this.

The fundraising will be done by asking for a R100 donation, in return you will receive a Hope Ribbon and an invoice to claim back from tax. Please help us to make this a memorable year for all. If you are doing a donation through the bank please reply to this email with your details and postal address to ensure you receive your Invoice and ribbon. Donations received towards our Hope project will be used to buy food, school clothes and shoes and stationary. This project will assist families with children as well as children safety houses and orphanages.
