Wings of Inspiration/Have A Heart Foundation – 27 05 2019

Wings of Inspiration/Have A Heart Foundation – 27 05 2019

Last winter, Hot Cares lent some Hot Cares help to the Have a Heart Foundation by replacing all the windows in their building which had been smashed in, making the shelter vulnerable to the cold.
Since then, they’ve had to move premises (for the better) and have now partnered with Wings of Inspiration – a great organisation that does a lot in the community – to renovate and retrofit the warehouse space they’ve found to make it fit for use as an old age home.
To help them get settled and make the place homely, Hot Cares has purchased 24 beds and mattresses. Thank you to Mattress Factory who’ve donated pillows for each bed. And in the heartwarming spirit of Ubuntu, a Hot 91.9 FM listener called in to donate her old kitchen to this very worthy cause.

Diepsloot Health and Wellness Mission

Diepsloot Health and Wellness Mission

Phezile Koekoe reached out to Hot Cares to tell us about the Health and Wellness Mission Project she spearheads in Diepsloot.

Every Thursday morning, a group of 45 people who are openly living with HIV and Aids who come together for mutual support group, skills development, spiritual support, health talk and food security.

As they encourage each other, there’s also a time of spiritual input through bible study, motivation and prayer. At the end they get food donations from Woolworths. Although, it’s not enough, it usually only lasts for a day or two and on other days, the people have to search around for decent food to take their medication.

They’re always in need of non-perishable foods, volunteers for trauma counselling and health talks, sanitary pads, as well as clothes and blankets.

To contribute towards the incredible work they are doing to educate, inform and encourage people in their community, Hot Cares has purchased grocery and toiletry items to the value of R7000 to assist.

Encouraging Carolyn

Encouraging Carolyn

Nominated by her friend Lynn, Carolyn has hit a truly tough time.

After having moved up to Johannesburg from Simon’s Town with her partner Anthony seeking a brighter future, things took a turn 2 years ago when Anthony tragically took his own life 2 years ago.

Carolyn found herself in this emotional adversity and left with nothing – no car, no accommodation. Being in her 50’s, Carolyn has been struggling recently following her retrenchment a few months back.

Her sister in New Zealand is helping her with renting a small cottage where she stays with her old doggie and cat, but she battling to find work because she doesn’t have a car and doesn’t have finances for transport.

Hot Cares are happy to assist Carolyn with grocery hampers including food for her pets, as well as for 3 month’s rent.

Hot Cares Soup Kitchen Ends The Year Off With A Bang!

It’s been our privilege to have fed hundreds of people since the start of the Hot Cares Soup Kitchen earlier on in 2018. Since it’s inception, through your generous support of the Hot Cares initiative, we’ve been able to touch lives and provide a healthy, reliable meal every Friday to those who need it most.

The 7th of December, we wrapped up a wonderful year’s worth of the Hot Cares Soup Kitchen. We rounded off things at the Randburg Methodist Church with a bang giving out Christmas gifts and care packs of food and treats to see our weekly visitors through their Festive Season. Thank you to our partners Jeep South Africa who have supported Hot Cares’ efforts throughout the year. We look forward to a prosperous 2019 together!
