Weltevreden Community Development Centre
Of particular concern in this community are lack of facilities
for the elderly and the large number of refugees who have found a
the community is poor in many respects, one thing they are not short
of is willing hands!
Volunteers have been mobilised to help set up
an inter-generational support group, which aims
to reintegrate the elderly into the community, through interacting
with the younger generation in a positive way.
Another project is a communal vegetable garden, to provide fresh
nutritious food for the community food kitchen.
Refugees are encouraged to make use of counselling services at the
Centre which provide much needed emotional and physical support,
as well as helping to integrate them into the community.
