Patrick Fleming, one of our founding trustees, visited many of the projects the GRCT funds in November 2019.
“Alta van Wyk, the dynamic young principal of Siyabuela Pre Primary, showed me around her school as well as the other five which now benefit from e’Pap. Alta is very committed to the local community, which suffers from high levels of unemployment and alcohol and substance abuse, and she is delighted to be able to help co-ordinate the feeding project in this area.”
Missionvale Care Centre near Port Elizabeth was founded thirty years ago by the inspirational Sister Ethel (second from right) and is an oasis in a desert of huge need. The GRCT funds e’Pap and midday sandwiches for the children at the primary school there. Unemployment in the area is now estimated at a staggering 80%, so there is huge need.
