Waves of Good Hope, particularly John Bleach, spends a great deal of time assessing the needs of the various projects in the Cape Town Region. The community based projects that Waves of Good Hope decide to support generally receive little or, in most cases, no government funding or support.
Once Waves of Good hope have made a decision to support, we then establish how best we can meet the projects’ needs. This may be through fulfilling some project needs by either:
Direct giving to children, families and project staff through Cape Town Trash and Treasure or other local Cape Town sponsors and supporters
Financially support by purchasing items from ‘Wish Lists”
The main projects we currently support are:
Cotlands provides residential care for up to 30 children from birth to seven years who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and who cannot be cared for in the community.
Sive Nathi is a home for severely and profoundly physically and or mentally disabled children. The home was originally started by a domestic worker from Khayelitsha in 1997. Since then she has given a home to disabled children whose parents have died, no longer want their sick children or simply cannot cope with their disabilities.
