COMMUNITY CARE CENTRE
The Siyabonga Africa Centre is the first point of contact for those seeking assistance. Each person is profiled to clearly identify the best form of support. If they need help beyond the scope of Siyabonga Africa, the person will be referred to other relevant NGOs, counsellors, social workers, churches etc.
Emergency relief (food, blankets, clothing and shelter) is provided for those who have lost their homes and possessions as a result of fire, floods or civil unrest, abused women and children, destitute and homeless people.
We receive, store and distribute to needy families in-kind and material donations of food items, clothing, bedding, school uniforms, toiletries, stationery, cleaning materials, baby items, second hand furniture, cutlery, crockery and other items.
In disadvantaged communities, people are often not aware of services and opportunities available to them and they continue to live in challenging circumstances without hope, purely because they don't know where to find help.
Our i-Desk offers people the opportunity to access information on various municipal services and centres, Non Profit Organisations, medical support, skills training and education institutions, rehabilitation centres and social services. We also provide them with news, business reports, job opportunities, assistance with printing CV's, photostating and faxing documents, as well as access to phone, email and the internet.
We also run awareness sessions to inform and educate people on topics such as: Alcohol & Drug Abuse, Community Services, Family Planning, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome etc.
