I would like to thank those members who so generously donated towards supplying food stuffs for residents who were adversely financially affected by Covid-19 and the subsequent "lock down". This was greatly appreciated by the recipients.
We have now reached the stage with many returning to work and able to fend for themselves which in turn means that nutrition assistance has only become necessary in a few cases. Taking this into account the BBRA is closing down their involvement and is handing over the few cases left to a local charitable organisation, Hangklip Community Care Centre, HCCC.
This independent organisation has been operational in the Hangklip area since 2014 and supplies subsidised meals, free food parcels to the needy, runs a chronic medication clinic and various social and recreational facilities. HCCC is a registered NPO with registration number 102-000-NPO and is also registered with SARS for the issue of form 18a certificates allowing donors who wish to receive certificates for tax deduction purposes.
Should you wish any other information on HCCC their information can be accessed on this web site here.
In the light of the above we intend to donate the balance of donors funds held to HCCC to subsidise their charitable work in attending to the nutrition of the needy in our area provided our donors are in favour of this action.
Additionally should any member wish to donate towards the initiatives of HCCC they can deposit to the bank account as follows:
Hangklip Community Care Centre
Cheque Account 62460003818
Reference Surname & Initials
Should you wish to discuss any of these arrangements you can contact me.
Thanks and Be Safe
