WHAT WE DO
Missio Dei School
Quality education remains a challenge in rural communities. Children are faced with numerous hardships including no transport to school and sub-standard levels of education. Language remains an issue as children in rural areas are less exposed to different languages. Once they are behind in education, a snowball effect causes them to be behind in securing employment which subsequently causes numerous social problems that our country faces each day.
Missio Dei Clinic
To respond to the need of proper health care in the rural areas a building was renovated on one of the farms, Stolberg to serve as a clinic for our community. Managed by a qualified nurse, Mrs Khaile, the clinic aims to serve the rural community of the surrounding area with basic health care services such as dentist visits, immunizations etc.
Missio Dei Remedial Class
In the local township, Meqheleng, children come home from school often to an empty home where they have to wait alone until their parents arrive home from work. They end up on the streets exposed to the dangers of street life. A centre was identified where children could attend after school, receive a meal and be safe. Currently there are two centres of this nature in our township.
Missio Dei Health Care Centre
The Bonang Bacha Health Care Centre is situated on one of our farms close to the town of Ficksburg. It was established in 2010 when Patricia Molipa heard of MD Foundation and came looking for help. Caring for terminally ill people in an abandoned dilapidated nursery school in the township she had a heart for her community and was battling to make ends meet caring for everyone from her own pocket. Initially our involvement was to supply food and assistance where we could. We soon realized that the community was suffering without proper support. There was no institution that families could turn to for assistance with terminally ill people.
