download our book

Rand Aid’s lovely book was written as a tribute to the men and women who, for well over a century, have seen a call to service in the needs of others.

Their tenacity of purpose, width of vision and faith in the causes they have accepted as a duty and their sense of social responsibility have laid the foundation for the present policy. A policy that has inspired those who today accept the challenge to build constructively and courageously to meet the ever-increasing demand for Rand Aid’s services.

It also introduces some aspects of the organisation’s services and innovations which have proven to be of great benefit, not only in Rand Aid’s operations but also to others having to deal with social welfare problems.

Our book surveys Rand Aid’s past, while also weaving through the history of Johannesburg and South Africa, with a justifiable sense of satisfaction in seeing our work develop from a relief role for the desperately poor in a newly-established Johannesburg to an organisation of national importance today.

outreach

Not only does Rand Aid assist indigent Elders in need and men suffering from substance use disorder, who are accommodated at our own facilities, we also invest in our surrounding community through various outreach programmes.

HELP THOSE IN NEED

Many of the vulnerable older people to whom we give shelter, receive only a government grant. This means they are unable to buy daily essentials such as toiletries, or to replace their clothes and shoes when they become worn. Little treats that add richness to life are out of their reach.

In addition, those who have a loved one battling the demons of substance addition know that the path to sobriety is a difficult one. Many arrive on our doorstep having depleted their finances, which makes our job of preparing them to retake their place in society much harder.
