Paw-Paw Foundation

Others we help...

We offer help to many individuals and small organisations 

This year we came along side a wonderful organization who do amazing work in the valley of a thousand hills and we give them nappies and baby clothes when we have a chance. We collect wheel chairs from people who no longer need them or request new chairs from organisations and give them to children who wouldn’t normally be able to afford to buy a chair. We make up care packets to take to people who are in Addington Hospital and once a month transport a group from a local church when they go and visit them. Included in the packets are soap, a sponge, biscuits, sweets, magazines and gifs. We donated a washing machine to Durban Children’s Homes Durban District for their shop. We were able to give a family who didn’t have  a kitchen at all a complete kitchen.

Individuals we help...

We collect foods, clothes, blankets, furniture, stationary and books from members of the public and take them to various orphanages in and around Durban. The one orphanage we support is in Shaka’s Kraal and we have assisted them by buying building materials for  them, so that they could add on 4 new  rooms to help them house more children. We have also given them furniture for these new rooms and food and clothes for the children. A Engen garage in Durban North gives us Woolworths food that has expired but  is still fine for human consumption and we take this food to families in Inchanga. The one family has five young children and is headed up by a teenager. The youngest, a boy, was killed in a hit and run accident this year and we organized and paid for his funeral. Another family has a father who is lame and cannot work and the mother has to look after him so she can’t work either. They have 3 children and a baby to care for We help a young family care for their baby as neither the mother or father have been able to find work this year. We help with nappies, food and toiletries.
