ChildCARE Plus in South Africa

ChildCARE Plus in South Africa

Our program in South Africa is located in township communities near Pretoria. PAOC Global Workers Cecelia and Felix Chiriseri manage this program which began in 2010 and focuses on children of single mothers who are struggling to provide for their children due to desperate circumstances.

Through a $41 monthly donation, a child can attend school, have access to nutritious food and healthcare and be spiritually nurtured by our on-the-ground ChildCARE Plus community representatives.

Community Development in South Africa

ERDO began working on a Community Development program in South Africa which is addressing the needs of mothers and children in townships surrounding Pretoria. This program currently impacts women and provides a better future for their families through regular community meetings that teach the women about sanitation/hygiene, child nutrition and the prevention of water-borne diseases and malaria.
