You are the heart of our work

Without the support and opportunities you help make possible, the lives of hundreds of people in the Western Cape with mental disabilites would be very different. You help prevent rejection, isolation and abuse – and replace it with loving care, and the chance for children and adults to reach their full potential and function as independently as possible.

Of every thousand people living in the Western Cape (and our population is over 5 million) 25 have an IQ between 50 and 70 – while in the general population of South Africa, 16.5% are diagnosed with some sort of mental illness.

So you see why your support is so desperately needed! Those of us who've been blessed with healthy minds and bodies are called to protect and nurture those less fortunate ... to help make their life's journey as pleasant and productive as possible. Please make your contribution now – your caring really does makes all the difference.
