Some of our EVENTS

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

Never miss a chance to make a difference.

WOODLANE VILLAGE FIRE

Woodlane Village lost 89 shacks in a fire on 18 July and 534 people were affected. Three people died. The community responded as always with mountains of donations and financial help and every day of the 4 days that items and food were distributed we had enough volunteers to sort and pack everything (on average 35 people per day). Unfortunately, another fire occurred on 31 July…

STREET MEDICINE PROJECT

The Woodlane Village Clinic started on 8 February 2017 in cooperation with the University of Pretoria (UP). The Clinic is part of the COPC (Community Oriented Primary Care) project that UP has in cooperation with the Department of Health in informal settlements.

ARTLIFT

The ArtLIFT Project started in April 2019. The aim of the project is to teach the residents of Woodlane Village skills to make articles and crafts. These items are sold and all the proceeds go towards the maker which in turn supports their families. The classes take place every Monday from 9:00 to 11:00.

We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome: black, white, red, yellow, rich, poor, educated, not educated, male, female, gay, straight, all, all, all. We all belong to this family, this human family, God's family.
