Needs List

We are grateful for all donations; however, we have compiled a list of our most pressing needs. Should you be able to help with any of the items listed below, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

Our biggest need is a car or micro bus. Transport is a constant struggle and cost for Emasithandane. Our children need to get to school, sporting events, camps, check-ups at the doctor, and after-school programmes. Our staff needs a better way to get groceries, attend workshops/training, and collect donations. To fill this gap we are appealing for a car or minivan. With this vehicle we can save time and have our own safe private transport.
