HOT Cares Provides the Platform for another amazing anonymous donation

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.

HOT Cares Plays Part in Getting Owl Rescue Centre Back on its Feet

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.

HOT Cares Helps Get Mobile Community Veterinary Clinic Up and Running

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.

HOT Cares Helps Desperate Young adult with Life-Changing Tonsillectomy

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.

HOT Cares Makes Life a Little More Comfortable for Orphaned Teens

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.

HOT Cares and Dis-Chem Foundation Help Elethu Daveyton Cheshire Home

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.

HOT Cares Helps Blind Runner with Running Kit and Transport Ahead of Comrades

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.
