Help fund our work
We want to do more – the needs of the people in Masiphumelele are great – but no matter how much support we have from our team of fantastic volunteers who deliver our projects and programmes, we cannot do it without financial donations.
Please join our fantastic team of fundraisers. You will always be most welcome to come and visit to see for yourself how the people of Masiphumelele appreciate what you have done for them.
