Care4u2 was able to help Glenda, a mum to a special needs child, who needed a stove and cabinets for her home. She says that she is so grateful as she can now cook food for her family. She also wants to start selling food to help sustain an income and not be totally dependent on the social grant. Thank you to the donor who donated both the stove and cabinets.

Vanessa is an active young lady who works in the Protective workshop section at Nokuthula School. Her Occupational Therapist noted that she needed some assistance with her eye sight and contacted Care4u2 for assistance.

Since receiving a pair of spectacles she has been working diligently at all tasks.
