PRESS RELEASE:USAPHO FOUNDATION IS FEEDING FAMILIES FOR R250.
At USAPHO Foundation we believe that building a better nation starts with building better families. We provide specific social interventions and workshop programmes that are preventative and developmental in nature. Our programmes range from positive parenting to teen pregnancy preparation, relationship and marital counselling. Our Fatherhood, Boyhood and Manhood programmes are specifically developed to help boys and men become positive role models in their communities despite their own circumstances or upbringing. Our participants have an admirable sense of responsibility and the courage to dare to do better for their families.
We at USAPHO, provide workshops, ongoing mentoring and support for the participants and their children for a period of +/- 3 years and in 2019 we worked with 1463 families in the Northern suburbs’ most vulnerable communities. Participants in our programmes are committed and actively working on improving the lives of their children but are faced with an extreme set of circumstances this year, as have many fellow South Africans. The additional stressors of the pandemic, loss of family members and employment are putting an enormous strain on otherwise dedicated participants. So, on their behalf, we are requesting public assistance to alleviate the burden of food provision for 50+ of our most vulnerable families so that they can stay focussed on their programs and role modelling.
We are requesting donations of R250 per family for food and care parcels. Donations can be made via bank account, GivenGain or Backabuddy. All donations will be administered by the 23rd December and any funds received after this date will be put towards school expenses like stationery and school uniforms. We’re very happy to provide donors with a section 18 A receipt. In this regard, kindly email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank you to our broader South African family for your generosity over this time.
