In the spirit of Ubuntu – we ask you to join us on this road through hope and upliftment to sustainable success.
To date every aspect of the Clover Mama Afrika initiative has surpassed all expectations and each success is a testament to the hard work, dedication and enormous pride of all involved. Any donation big or small makes a huge difference to the lives of Clover Mama Afrika members.
All donations received are distributed accordingly to each centre countrywide.
Here are some ideas of what our Mamas will always be grateful for:
Non-perishable and tinned food
Non-perishable foods have a long shelf life and don’t require refrigeration and will help ensure that those in the care of our Mamas always have a warm meal to eat.
Nappies
There are just over 700 babies under the age of 2 years and therefore nappies would not be a luxury but a necessity. Most centres do not have washing machines and all towling nappies are washed by hand sometimes 5 x a day.
Utensils
With over 5000 children fed by the Mamas on a daily basis, basic utensils such as a spoon and bowl are considered as a luxury item. Most children arrive with either a broken plastic spoon and a broken ice cream tub or margarine tub. Stainless steel spoon and durable plastic bowls/plates will make a huge difference. Mamas also enjoy being a good host to visitors and therefore will never say no to a nice tea/coffee set or glass set.
Toiletries
They may live in dusty and sad surroundings but hygiene is always high on the priority list of the Mamas. Children have to be clean. Soaps, toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper etc..
Cleaning goods
A Mama can never have enough detergents, disinfectants and cleaning goods to ensure a clean and safe environment for those she cares for.
Furniture
Anything from chairs, tables, shelving to beds, cupboards will always be used by the centres. Accessories such as carpets, mats and curtaining are also welcome.
Clothing
Good condition second hand clothing for young and old will always be worn with pride.
Toys
So many of the Clover Mama Afrika children do not possess their own toys. Good condition toys will bring about grateful smiles.
Stationery
Most centres have nursery schools and there will always be a need for educational posters, crayons, rulers, pencils etc..
Playground
What youngsters can resist swings, monkey bars, slides – mini jungle gyms?
Blankets
Bring warmth to those in need – specifically during winter months.
