Dear Friend of the Children/Youth and New Jerusalem Children’s Home (NJCH)
We thank you for your interest and support for the Children/Youth of NJCH. Our core reason for being is to serve the physical, educational, health and psychological needs of each Individual Child under our care. We have been rendering this service since year 2000.
This includes providing food, clothing, paying for water, electricity (ESKOM), paying for school fees, school stationery and uniform, providing transportation to school, hospitals.., cleaning supplies to maintain the home, vehicle maintenance..etc
As an individual with a family, you can understand how important and costly it is to provide for all of those vital daily living necessities for your loved ones. In the case of New Jerusalem Children’s home, our Family consists of 88 children/youth and the staff that cares for them.
Here are NJCH’s daily financial realities. NJCH receives some financial assistance from the government for which we are grateful. This government support covers only 60 (sixty) percent of NJCH monthly operating costs. The remaining 40 (forty) percent must be raised every month from private individuals or companies.
Imagine a family whose monthly family income covers only 60% of the family’s essential living expenses, month after month, and does not have a steady, predictable source of income to cover for the remaining 40% of vital living expenses.
NJCH’s support from the government has not increased much in 3 years. NJCH is charged full commercial/business rates for water and electricity. Our water and electricity (ESKOM) monthly bill have more than DOUBLED over the last year.
As for education 84 out 88 children/teenagers attend school. 34 are attending government public schools. We have a total of 50 (fifty) learners attending private schools with no bursaries to cover their school fees, uniform and stationery.
As present, we have no private companies supporting our 40% monthly operating cost deficit or school fees/bursaries for the 50 NJCH Learners attending private schools.
Your personal monthly support for the living expenses and education of each individual child at the New Jerusalem Children’s Home is vital and would be most appreciated. Any amount would be very helpful. You can choose the area where you would like your contribution to be applied. Food, Clothing | Water, Electricity (Eskom) | Education, School Fees/Bursaries| Health | Transportation, Maintenance. A monthly EFT transfer would be ideal, but any contribution is most welcome.
