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.
“I would like to express my deepest thanks to you all for the care and concern you’ve shown to residents during the Covid lockdown. It has been more than we expected or could have asked for. I can now shout ‘I’m free and I’m so happy’. The Board has spent an enormous amount of money on equipment, facilities, sanitising and much more. Your concern has, and still is, first and foremost for our safety and well-being.
While we often struggled and were affected by restrictions, we have had our beautiful facilities and the blessing of walking around our village which opened our eyes to gardens and the beauty and order around us. Our library was a blessing, helping many over lonely and frustrating periods.
My family too extend their thanks as the care we received lessened their concern for us. I’m very grateful that they’ve had one less worry. My very best wishes to you all with the hope that you too will be blessed as we are.”
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.
