Community Development is about meeting the needs of the poor through selfless love and service. Our Home Based Care services are in conjunction with the local clinics and treatment plan. A home visit may include a bed bath, wound care, physio and mobility exercises, medication, nutrition and hygiene training. Added services include feeding a patient soup, doing laundry, cleaning the home, teaching the family and friends how to support and rehabilitate the patient to the best of their ability. Our carers conduct over 5000 visits annually.
Our Gogo’s (Gogo means “granny” in Xhosa) meet once a week to fellowship. Half of these ladies are breadwinners and caretakers for their families and they have heavy loads to carry. The aim of this project is to connect people, encourage them, share the word of God, create unity and fellowship, as well as provide a platform for counselling and deeper relationship. Regular distribution of donations to those who are physically unable to help themselves and are vulnerable to starvation and malnutrition form a big part of this project.
We have encountered many orphans and vulnerable children as a result of the health status of our Home Based Care patients. We saw a need in the children - for more care and support, practically and spiritually. We host “Play Dates” on alternative Saturdays to provide a safe environment to teach Godly morals, life skills while playing games and enjoying nutritious snacks.
During the school term, children are fed a meal once a day. During school holidays children are often left to fend for themselves in the community. Ikhaya Le Themba hosts holiday clubs twice per annum to provide a place of safety and nutritious snacks while having fun with friends
Each Friday afternoon, Ikhaya Le Themba meets with a group of older children that we have been attending play dates for many years. They are discipled and trained up to lead and mentor the smaller children attending playdates. Our heart is to pass down a blessing to the next generation.
