Baphumelele relies on donations to make the difference in the lives of the children, young people and patients who are cared for by the various different projects. Their wish list below gives an idea of the essential items that they need every year to help look after these most vulnerable members of the community:
They are always in need of the following:
Groceries such as maize meal, rice, sugar, samp, pasta, tinned fish. milk and other dry goods as well as vegetables and fruit
Electricity for the 19 electricity meters which light, help feed, wash and keep warm the many children and patients in their care (electricity is bought from a shop or online – if you wish to help with this, please contact them for the meter numbers)
Toiletries such as soap, toothpaste, deoderant (both boys and girls!), facecloths and towels
Baby supplies such as nappies (in medium, large, extra large sizes), vaseline and wet wipes
Household goods such as old furniture, curtains, appliances and TVs (old style very much accepted). Kitchenware such as cutting knives, bread knives and cutlery would also be gratefully received.
Tools and building materials such as old wood, doors, bricks and kitchen cupboards which can be reused in our new farm project
Please note that this is a basic wish list – further details can be found on each project page. If you would like further information or want to donate something in particular, please do contact Baphumelele.
They thank you!
