We just love to spread the Hot Cares net wide and that’s exactly the opportunity that presented itself when this particular story came across our desk. St.Theresa's Children's Home is based in Durban and does incredible work for children in need, but they’ve been struggling for funding. So, Hot Cares put the word out and this is what came back.
Our annual Teddython fundraiser is just weeks away and this is why it’s such an important day for Hot Cares, as we look to make a meaningful difference to the lives of those around us. Ophthalmic surgeon Dr Rodney Blumenfeld donated a double cataract surgery last year and this allowed Hot Cares to change the life of 73-year-old dad Gerry Atkins. Here are the details.
Owl Rescue Centre takes in more than a thousand owls every year through their rescue efforts, but unfortunately, a devastating fire ripped through the centre recently, causing damage to the 12 owl enclosures, to the tune of at least R300 000. Fortunately, some very generous HOT 102.7FM listeners have already funded the rebuilding of some enclosures, but here is how Hot Cares is getting involved.
Dr Bronwyn Thomen and her husband Kent Jennings run a mobile veterinary clinic and have been treating 140 to 180 animals every month, but they are in the process of relocating from Gauteng to Emgwenya in Mpumalanga and need help setting up a mobile veterinary clinic to service the Emakhazeni community. Here’s how Hot Cares is helping.
Many of us were fortunate to have our tonsils out as kids if it was medically needed. So, it’s been a while, and most of us probably don’t remember what it was like at the time, but if you speak to anyone who has had a tonsil problem as an adult, you’ll know that it can be an incredibly serious and debilitating condition to go through, which is exactly the issue facing 21-year-old Nicole. Hear her story here.
People who care for animals usually have the biggest hearts and that certainly seems the case with Philippa du Toit, who runs a charity organization called Blind Love Africa, but has fallen on hard times recently. Find out here how Hot Cares is making a meaningful difference to her life.
Emily Ndlovu’s house burnt down, leaving her with absolutely nothing, and Hot Cares was contacted by her manager at work, Blydie Willemse, resulting in a plan of action that will at least see Emily start to rebuild her life with some key items. Find exactly what and how, right here.
Children should never outlive their parents – particularly kids not even out of their teens – but life isn’t that simple, and Hot Cares sees stories all the time of families hugely impacted by tragedy, just like the story of Ashley and Nikita, who have lost both their parents in the last three years. Find out here how Hot Cares is stepping in to help.
We all need a roof over our heads, but that need is even more critical for those with little or no ability to care for themselves. That’s certainly the case with the residents of Elethu Daveyton Cheshire Home, which is an organisation that provides 24/7 residential care for persons with disabilities. Unfortunately, the home was recently badly damaged by a fire, which compelled Hot Cares and the Dis-Chem Foundation to find out how they could help. This is their story.
Running is hard enough! Just ask HOT 102.7FM’s Dylan Rogers who is constantly telling us how much work goes into training for the Comrades Marathon. So, the concept of running blind, never mind running a marathon or half-marathon blind, just blew us away, and that’s what happened when we were contacted by Brigid Jaucot. Get all the details here.
Our project this Mandela Day involves the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital and the incredible ‘Surgeons for Little Lives’ team there.
South Africa has such a terrible unemployment problem that here at Hot Cares we applaud anyone who has the courage to help themselves and the bravery to attempt starting up their own business. That’s why we’re getting behind Sibongile and Thokozane’s chip-making business. Get all the details here.
