Many of our clients that join the Disciple program will move on and become members of our Community Outreach Program.The purpose of the program is to assist families on-site in the community with food and clothing, provide soup kitchens with vegetables and counsel those with substance-abuse problems. They also collaborate with other concerned members of the community to identify the needy.The Outreach program was extended to the Blue Downs area during 2004 and since then expanded to include the Faure, Mfuleni and Macassar areas. Feeding schemes were initiated in Stratford-Green, Silwood Heights, Condor Park (all in Eerste Rivier), Faure Squatter Camp, Macassar Squatter Camp, Baviaanskloof Feeding scheme (Mitchells Plain) and Geron (Mfuleni)
In the past year we have reach out to just over 1000 households in these areas. The real need in this area is enormous.
We endeavor to make a real difference in these areas and hope to expand and increase our follow-up support during 2006.
