The ICCF and Ihata Shelter
Jointly hosted a Youth Leadership Camp for several Orphanages, Shelters & Safe Houses between 21st & 24th March 2016. This was held at the Rotary Youth Camp in Clencairn. The camp was attended by a total of 63 children from Heideveld Safe House, Elonwabeni Children’s Centre, Beitun Nur, Al-Jamia-Al-Islamia, Leliebloem House & the Ihata Shelter.
Programs that were facilitated during the Leadership Camp were Communication & Emotions, Goal Setting, Anger Management, Choices and Consequences, Self-Love, Vision & Mission in Life, Discover Yourself, Expectations and Know your Surroundings.
The primary objective was to awaken leadership qualities within the kids, so that they could go back to their respective communities and inspire other youth and together, become role models for all kids..
ICARE children’s foundation was invited to GIGS FOR KIDS, hosted by ESP AFRICA AND THE CITY OF CAPE TOWN at Artscape, Cape Town.
We arranged for 20 kids, aged between 5 & 10, from Beitun Nur, Manenberg Safe house& Heideveld Safe house to attend. Our children were greeted with popcorn, drinks, face painting & balloons.
They were then treated to an afternoon of dance, sing and act through the colourful programme, created especially for the younger art lovers. This event included high flying acrobatics, drama, all their favourite kids characters and a chance for the little ones to get involved in the joy of music..
SSS (Sport Stepping Stones) and ICare invited underprivileged kids to a soccer coaching clinic, showing them the opportunities within the sport and particularly the soccer fraternity. Areas that was covered included Hanover Park, Manenberg, Gugulethu, Bokmakierie, Tafelsig, Woodlands, Khayelitsha, Nyanga, etc. .
There are millions of South Africans that go hungry every single day…iCare doing its level best to make a difference in the Heinz Park community with one of its feeding schemes.
Too many parents of the little patients at the Red Cross Hospital spend their entire day without any food. Many of them come from rural areas and have to spend long hours sitting and waiting...iCare feeding these parents waiting for assistance at the Red Cross Hospital.
84 year old Asa Moses from Bonteheuwel suffered a stroke two years ago. The effect of this has made it almost impossible for her to walk, let alone stand. Her quality of life deteriorated dramatically. On April 01st 2016, the ICCF, managed to source a wheelchair for Mrs. Moses. We sincerely hope that this small gesture will improve her mobility and her quality of life.
Mogamad Fa’iz Salie, aged 59, from Rocklands Mitchells Plain received a wheelchair from the Ward Councillor of Rocklands and the Mayor of Cape Town through an application placed via the ICCF to the City of Cape Town. Mr. Salie is a diabetic sufferer and had his lower right leg amputated above the knee which qualified him for this initiative run by the City of Cape Town. The ICCF was happy to assist Mr. Salie with his application and grateful for the contribution made to his independence.
Naseema Jassiem, a 66year old resident of Lentegeur Mitchells Plain has been suffering from arthritis. She couldn’t walk much or stand for long periods. Aunty Naseema used to move around the house and kitchen in a normal chair. Aunty Naseema appealed to us to help her find a wheelchair. We could see the challenges that she was facing and we could see her pain. ICare children’s foundation with the help of Councillor Bent from sub council 23 requested from the mayor’s office help to attain a wheel chair, and through this effort we could bless aunty Naseema with a brand new wheelchair.
