Hope and Homes for Children 2007

Hope and Homes for Children used a £19,240 ERSF grant to purchase, and cover the running costs, of two vehicles to service the Moretele programme in South Africa. These vehicles allow the team to reach many more children and their communities to support child-headed households.

The two vehicles have proved to be an essential life-line for the communities that the Moretele Sunrise Hospice serves; the food programme has managed to increase its beneficiary numbers by a further 33 families, consisting of 153 children. Some 53 families were able to create vegetable gardens in their yards, which were supported by staff through home visits.

The vehicles also had a positive impact on the social work team who made 305 home visits to assess foster families, review individual foster cases and to buy and deliver groceries.
