During these uncertain times, it warms the heart to know that there are still organisations that stand together to ensure that the hungry are fed.
Three years ago the Help Forum was established, and today their worth is truly shining through. The Help Forum consists of sixteen organisations, including I48 and Tiaan Kotzé, ward 37 councillor, working together, serving families, the elderly and children in need.
Various organisations benefit from the Help Forum and their continued work to serve their community. The charitable organisations include Tutela, Alberton Lions, Amcare, Ligstad, Happy Hearts, Alberton Victim Support, Lewensentrum and Doxa Deo, just to name a few.
In turn, the organisations distribute the food received to various sources in the whole of Alberton, Thokoza and Edenpark. For the various volunteers, social workers and auxiliary workers, it brings great joy to see the gratitude on the faces of those who benefit from their service.
The service provided by the Help Forum has also been met with gratitude by the organisations they support, as it affords them the opportunity to truly help those in need. This reminds us of a quote by Ronald Reagan;
“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”
The forum also received a special donation from Nando’s South Africa. The donation was handed out to the needy, poor and destitute by all the organisations, bringing a smile to the faces of many struggling Albertonians.
