The last half f the year our beneficiary was Bethany Home.
Bethany is a non-profit organisation which was founded in 1989 by Val Halley-Wright as a shelter and place of rehabilitation for abused women and their children. The home is situated in the Bertrams area, Johannesburg, South Africa.
We first came into contact with Bethany Home through our client, Multichoice who supports the home too. It was when they shared their story at a Woman’s Day event that we were so touched by the home that we decided to get involved. In 2016 we provided some massages to the ladies at the home to give them a special treat and needless to say they absolutely loved it! PlP got on board and provided care packs and pamper goodies for the ladies too.
When we spent time in the home chatting to some of the women there it is unbelievable to see how positive they are and what really made an impression on us was the fact that a lady who has been financially independent for 10 years still comes to visit with warm feelings towards the home. With all of these factors we decided to nominate them as our cash beneficiary for our 1% donation this last half of the year.
If you want to help the Bethany home in any way they are always in need of donations, clothing and recruitment, they strive to help these women get back on their feet and independent so helping them find work is first prize.
Our handover will take place in January 2018 and we look forward to our visit to the home.
