Family Care soldiers on despite tough challenges

Richards Bay Family Care Management committee members Ivan Naidoo and Renier Botha were the host of attendees at the annual general meeting

RICHARDS Bay Family Care’s (RBFC) social relief programme is under severe strain as social workers grapple to meet the need of many families relying on food parcels.

At the organisation’s annual general meeting, Social Work Supervisor Ayanda Dumisa said donations of food parcels have declined.

Families in need arrive on a daily basis requesting basic food supplies and the organisation cannot meet the demand.

Like many non-profit organisations, RBFC is also facing financial challenges, but have successfully conducted their projects, reached their targets and maintained weekly visits to their two sub-offices in Mzingazi and Mandlazini.

‘Social workers visit the onsite sub-offices once a week to remain accessible and render effective services to the community,’ said Dumisa.

‘Child abuse matters always receive top priority and it remains a huge burden because we do not only want to eradicate it, but abolish it completely as we strongly condemn these acts.

‘Despite the challenging economic circumstances affecting all sectors, the organisation continued to focus on their work to ensure effective services.’

Individuals or businesses who would like to donate food items can phone 035 7892640.
