Hlanganani Ngothando “Meet with Love” is a care centre in Bulwer for children and young adults with physical and mental disabilities. Here they receive therapy and activities to encourage development to reach his/her best potential.

Mahatma Ghandi said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Mdzananda “Distemper” Animal Clinic’s vision of companionship and community care for every animal surely does Ghandi’s statement proud. They are situated in Khayelitsha and provide education for looking after animals, low cost veterinary services and perform abuse and neglect interventions. In this way the community learns responsibility, respect for life, compassion and non-violence. These valuable attributes will reflect in everyday life.

The aged are surely to be included in this. When you are in your teens, anyone in their twenties seems old, but before you know it, that someone is you. The Sinovuyo “We are Happy” Old Age Group in Khayelitsha meet every day Monday to Friday. Members are between 60 and 85 years old. The organization helps seniors with exercise, feeding scheme, social discussions and hand-works. It provides joy, happiness, but most importantly overall support.
