Bring a blanket to Fijnwyn, use it for the day and give it to charity when you leave. We have partnered with the Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation who will collect the blankets and distribute to the people who need them. Winter is around the corner and there are so many people who do not have blankets. Visit http://www.hannacharity.org for more information on the organization and the amazing work they do!
About Hanna Charity & Empowerment foundation:
The Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation began in 2008 through the visionary leadership of Hanna Grobler who always wanted to make people happy and have them believe in themselves. When Hanna was still at school she worked on weekends at a place of safety and regularly visited patients in a geriatric institution. Whilst studying at the University of Stellenbosch she gave complementary art classes to the poor community of Cloetesville and had a children’s ministry. Hanna registered Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation as a Non-Profitable Organisation for her charity work to continue helping the people she once served.
Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation’s mission is to take hands with the poor and marginalized people of South Africa. We provide personal attention and direct benefits to children, youth, aging and their families so they may live with dignity, achieve their desired potential and participate fully in society. We invite people of good will to live in daily solidarity with the world’s poor through one-to-one sponsorship. We build the community by fostering relationships of mutual respect, understanding and support that are culturally diverse, empowering and without religious or other prejudice.
