Thunderbolt's Annual Philanthropy Campaign - 2021 we Donate R50000 to a Babies Home in Port Elizabeth / Gqeberha

As part of our our annual 67 Minutes Campaign, we have donated R50,000 to Isithembiso Babies home in Gqeberha.

Isithembiso Babies Home is located . We're calling on all willing and able residents of South Africa to help by making a DONATION to 

contribute towards this worthy cause.

Each year, our philanthropy campaign also aims to raise awareness for the home as well as inform people of the many different ways in which they too can help.

About Isithembiso Babies Home:

Isithembiso is an NPO that provides a safe place for children under three who have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Its vision is to see those babies placed in families that will love them as their own. It works hand-in-hand with social services to place each child with a foster or adoptive home or reunite them with their families.

Isithembiso opened their doors in 2005 and have provided a safe home to over 140 babies since then. There are currently 12 babies between their two homes and are at their max. capacity.

Isithembiso currently have a vision of purchasing a third home which will allow them to take even more babies in, to meet the increasing need in Gqeberha.

Unfortunately, (and understandably so), it has proven to be rather difficult for the babies’ home to find a place to rent as home owners are somewhat concerned about possible financial risks related to an NPO.

Thus, their main need at the moment is to find an investor or sponsor who is willing to partner with them in order to help make this dream of purchasing and owning a third home, become a reality. Having more space would mean they can, of course, accommodate more babies, but also have enough room to create additional spaces for play, occupational and physio therapy, as well as much needed storage. A spacious home with a garden would be ideal as this would allow the home to dedicate space to a veggie patch where organic fruit and veggies can be home-grown. If you or anyone you know might be willing to sponsor, invest or partner with Isithembiso on making this dream a reality, please kindly get in touch with their coordinator, Teranique via email: [email protected] or telephone (+27) 0415810374 to find out more. .

Becoming an investor or sponsor might not be something that everyone is able to afford but there are many other smaller ways in which you can make a difference and contribute positively towards helping the home. For example, you could ‘Become a friend of Isi’ and donate R2000 a month over the course of three months which will help towards covering the daily and monthly expenses which the home incurs. If you would like to donate a smaller amount, volunteer or donate supplies, find out more and go directly to the donate section of their website. 

Are you or anyone you know, a keen golfer who would like to take part in the annual Isithembiso Tom Kruger Memorial Cup Golf Day? Get in touch today to find out more information on how to secure your or sponsor a four ball, a tee box, green or a prize! The golf day will take place at 11:00 AM at Port Elizabeth Golf club on the 5th of November 2021.
