This month, with the kind and generous support of our donors we have been able to deliver much needed food parcels and education packs to our children and their families. This assistance extends not only to our current families, but also to our past children and their families, twenty in total.

The children have missed being at school enormously during lock down! Two mothers in each community have offered to supervise the children while they work through the educational activities that Teacher Nushfeekah has organised for them. Bread, jam and juice are packed in for the moms to make a snack for the children while they work. In this way we aim to uplift and empower the parents in the three communities. After her visit on Tuesday Nushfeekah said that there is sense of accountability amongst the mothers now, because they are feeling well supported by the Educare staff.

Please see below how you can help us with our Covid-19 support project.
