We are proud to have supported the The Hope Factory, Fine Women Excellaration Fund, PETS and Catholic Welfare and Development as part of our annual Festive Season donations on behalf of all of our clients, colleagues and staff.

– PETS (Pet Empowerment in Townships)
PETS strives to empower animals in townships and poor communities. They work with the community to improve the lives of these disadvantaged animals by giving them daily meals, warm shelters, regular inoculations, sterilisations and vet care in emergencies. We also rehome those ones that are unwanted, unloved or lost.
– Catholic Welfare Development – Buckets of Love Campaign
They are simple plastic buckets which and are filled with 13 basic food items – and a ton of joy and hope! And for families who live below the breadline, they’re a true blessing! Each bucket contains enough food to feed a family of four over Christmas.
Rosh Hashanah and Eid
We again supported The Oranjia Jewish Child and Youth Care Centre and Gift of the Givers Foundation on behalf of our clients for Rosh Hashanah and Eid.
– The Oranjia Jewish Child and Youth Care Centre
Oranjia aims to provide child and youth centred services as well as residential care group care to Jewish children who have been found in need of care in terms of the Child Care Act. The philosophy of care is based on the core principle that children at youth at risk need opportunities for competency, development and personal growth. Children and youth with emotional trauma and distress present with interpersonal and social difficulties.
– Gift of the Givers
The Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster relief organisation of African origin on the African continent. They have delivered over R400 million in aid to 27 countries around the world, including South Africa. They have designed and developed the world’s first and largest containerised mobile hospital, which was deployed in Bosnia. It was comparable to the best hospitals in Europe and remains unmatched to this day. Besides disaster relief activities, they run 22 projects, including Health, Education, Agricultural Sustainability, Life Skills, Job Creation & Entrepreneurship, Feeding Schemes, Sport & Culture and Winter Warmth.
