Help prevent our crisis with low stock in food pantries and stores at the children’s home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The financial impact of the latest Covid 19 wave and extended national Covid-19 lockdown on the Abraham Kriel Children’s Home in Nylstroom (AKK Nylstroom) has become a serious burden.
We are currently low on stock in our food pantries and stores for 15 homes to 170 children.
The financial support we receive from government arrived three months late. In order to make up for the shortage of funds, a Children’s Emergency Fund was created to limit the financial impact of the latest Covid-19 wave and make it safe for our children in a time of crisis. The AKK Nylstroom plans to get as many South Africans as possible to contribute a small monthly donation to the fund.
The Abraham Kriel Children’s Home Nylstroom (AKK) takes care of 170 children. The state currently funds less than 50% of these children’s needs. Our children need your help in these uncertain times.
The AKK Nylstroom has relief measures in place, one being the establishment of a Children’s Emergency Fund to restore hope and to improve our dire situation. This plan was set in motion after the AKK Nylstroom has sent a report to the Minister in the Presidency outlining the current financial position of the children’s home.
During this time, we as Christians continue to take responsibility for the vulnerable children in our community.
