rencontre st jean sur richelieu Community Chest Impumelelo Social Innovations Awards have awarded the Changemaker in Health Award to the Ikamva Labantu Umelwane Project. We are glad to be able to contribute to the Seniors Programme.
A very successful fundraiser was organised by our supporters in Oxford last Autumn. The event raised almost £1300. South African food was provided by Lucas and Helen complimented by South African music. We are able to watch a video interview with Denis Goldberg, produced exclusively for Community HEART. Many thanks to our host Jane Coker.
Ububele has produced a short film about their Umdlezane – the first 1000 days programme. The programme concentrates on the very early emotional attachment between mother and baby. We thought we would share this with you, as it shows why the programme is so important.
Community H.E.A.R.T. would like to invite you to join us at our fundraising event “A Night for the Children of the Rainbow Nation” on the 22nd of May 2015. The evening will consist of a meal, entertainment, raffles and auctions. The cost of £60 per head will be charged for each guest which will include the meal, all drinks and entry into the raffle.
The guest speaker will be our President Professor Denis Goldberg, one of those tried at Rivonia and sentenced to life imprisonment alongside Nelson Mandela.
The aim of the evening is to raise funds for projects in South Africa supported by Community H.E.A.R.T. These projects include a small HIV/AIDS orphans project, a housing project, a rape crisis centre and our book project, which has already provided 2.88 million children’s books to set up school libraries, and other education and health projects. In the next 18 months we want to reach our target of 3 million books to do this we hope to raise sufficient funds, £15,000, to do this.
The event will take place at the South African High Commission, South Africa House, Trafalgar Square, London.
