The Family Africa is a faith based organisation bringing real hope for the future to thousands of people from previously disadvantaged groups in South Africa.
We follow a holistic approach to welfare involving the mind, body and spirit. To this end we work on three levels:
1. Short Term: Immediate relief through feeding schemes, provision of clothing and blankets and response to local disasters.
2. Medium term: Education and training including basic skills training, HIV/AIDS awareness programmes in primary and secondary schools and the production of materials to assist prevention and promote attitude change.
3. Long Term: Spiritual, emotional and psychological support.
