Building Blocks For A Better Future

Our Stories Of Hope

You Can Help Make A Difference

Thank You!

It’s time to say a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who took part in our joyous journey of hope, who with contributions, prayers, support and caring helped to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. The lucky winners of the two blankets are Ina Atkinson of the Free State (the Ellinor blanket) and Ida Mac Donnell of Gauteng (the Lise blanket).  But… watch this space… we’ll be back soon with more stories of hope, and another chance to build a better future, one block at a time.

Blocks Of Hope Project

Engo Family Care is a non-profit organization in the Free State province of South-Africa. It has a proud history of 60 years of making a difference in the poverty-ridden community of Senekal. Their projects include HIV/AIDS programmes, feeding schemes, elderly care and family intervention services. Due to economic hardship and government cutbacks, they are faced with a battle of survival and the well-being of thousands of people is at stake.

They need R300 000 (£16 100, €18 300 or $21 200) just to survive financially.
