Every person has the ability to make a difference – regardless of the size or nature of the contribution. Every day we are surrounded by small opportunities to help others. Cape Mental Health is registered non-profit organisation, NPO number 003-264. Here are just a few of the ways in which you can make a difference.
You can make a once-off donation or choose to donate monthly or as often as you choose. Cape Mental Health is a registered Public Benefit Organisation in terms of Section 30 of the Income Tax Act 1962 and has been approved for purposes of Section 18A(1)(a) of the Act. Our PBO number is 130004456. Donations to the organisation are therefore tax deductible.
With 22 projects to furnish, equip and maintain, we can use almost any item you can spare. We welcome items such as blankets, clothing, crockery, non-perishable food, furniture, office stationery, and equipment that are in a good condition.
Volunteers contribute to the sustainability of Cape Mental Health by providing additional capacity and expertise to our various departments and mental health care services. They also impact directly on the lives of service users through their direct engagement with and nurturing of children and adults with mental disability.
Volunteers can be placed in any of our departments and programmes/projects to meet existing needs, but most placements occur at our community-based services for children with severe and profound intellectual disability, and our life skills and work skills training programmes for adults with intellectual disability and those with psychosocial disability.
