Tuesday - Human Rights - NewKidz on the block!!!

On today's show i spoke to  Hilda one of the founding members of an amazing NGO called the Newkidz. Newkidz is an organization that was formed in 2007 after a group of friends from Cape Town (in South Africa) saw a need at a Children’s Home for abandoned and orphaned children in one of the local communities called Mfuleni, just north of Cape Town. 

After volunteering their time on weekends over a period of 6 months they could not turn their backs and walk away from the obvious needs that these children had without getting radically involved.

So now they do extreme makeovers of Children’s Homes to create awareness and support for orphans, destitute and vulnerable children in South Africa. they make every effort to try and get children who find themselves in these circumstances integrated into loving family homes.

Part of their mission is to - To help establish loving homes for orphaned, vulnerable and destitute children in South Africa. By building sustainable child support networks in communities and linking them with foster families and children’s homes.

The interview could have lasted for hours they way Hilda spoke passionately about this great initiative that they are doing but unfortunately the show much go on. But for more information on how to volunteer or donate or even if you would like them to come and assist you in your community you more than welcome to call Hilda on 079 875 5745.
