The wait is over!

 

We mentioned in our July'22 Newsletter about our new Community Upliftment Project and we are glad to announce that we have been given permission by the homeowners concerned to go ahead with the project.

This project is situated at one of the busiest corners in Imizamo Yethu. A more perfect position one won't find elsewhere.

The aim of this project is to paint a positive, uplifting mural on this wall and at the same time to do some tidying up of the surrounding areas.

Murals of this kind are very popular in many big cities of the world. The positive affects that positive, uplifting images and messages have on people is a well-known fact. We are all users of this concept. A quick look at the portraits and paintings in our homes and offices will confirm this.

WE HAVE ALREADY STARTED

We have started with this project about a month ago with the money we have received to date. A large portion of the hard work (pictures below) has already been done. Most of the work that's left, besides the tar surfacing, is the paintwork. This includes the residential boundary walls adjoining the mural and then the mural itself. The estimated expenses for the remaining phases are listed below.

THE NEXT PHASE

All the available funds have now been used. As soon as we get more funds, we will start with the preparation of the main wall for the mural artwork. We have a talented local black artist who are ready to start with the painting of the tree. This will take a couple weeks because this needs to be done by hand on ladders.

As soon as this is in place we will prepare artwork for stencils to do the flowers, grass, butterflies, etc.

PAINTING OF THE MURAL - VOLUNTEERS

Our plan is to invite all our local supporters to join us on a Saturday to help us on the mural. Some of the work will be done by brush, and others by stencils and spray paint. This will give everyone a hands-on opportunity to make their personal contribution to this lovely project. The date will be communicated closer to the time.

WARM HEARTS

 

 

 

"It is a sad thing when the heart is cold with a good matter,

and worse when it is warm with a bad matter,

but incomparably well when a warm heart and a good matter meet together."

PROTECTION FOR OUR PATROLLERS

Estimated Cost: 5 X R4,500 = R22,500

 

 

 

 

Keeping law and order in any community can be dangerous and is a big responsibility. It takes

 extraordinary dedication, commitment and sacrifice from the authorities and people involved.

Imizamo Yethu had its fair share of criminal activities in the past which resulted in the formation

 of a Neighbourhood Watch known as the 'Imizamo Yethu Patrollers'. This dedicated group comprise of

 approximately 65 men who go out in teams every night doing their patrols from 10am to 4am

in the morning - 7 days a week. These men are all volunteers and provide this service

unselfishly with very little compensation.

An increasing amount of residents are carrying firearms these days and several people

have been killed in shooting incidents this year - mostly related with feuds between taxi

operators.

Patrolling volatile areas in the township has become increasingly dangerous for our patrollers

who do not have any protection when addressing situations where firearms are involved.

The HBCCA would like to make an appeal to our supporters for funds to fund the purchase of five (5)

bullet proof vests which could be used by members patrolling in dangerous areas.

At the same time we would also like to donate five good quality, rechargeable

security torches (flashlights) which is currently also needed by the men.

IZIKO LOBOMI SOLAR ENERGY

INSTALLATION

Estimated Project Cost: R250,000 - R300,000

 

 

 

 

The HBCCA received a donation of R100,000 from one of our anchor supporters in February '23

We have received a quotation for a solar energy installation that will cater for most of the electrical equipment (except stoves and geysers) to the amount of R 286,000. With this installation we estimate that a saving of approximately 75% of our current electricity bill will be possible. This saving will be between R7 and R8,000 per month or almost 20% of our total monthly expenditure.

We will appreciate donations towards this project and Tax Certificates will be issued on receipt.

Online donations can be made using the following Payfast link or direct payments can be made into the HBCCA's bank account. The bank details are the following...

We greatly value your support with this Project!

CHAIRS

 

 

 

 

Chairs play a crucial role in a place like Iziko Lobomi where one of the main functions of the facility is to provide a venue for community meetings, functions and events.

Our chairs are approaching 25 years old and are showing the signs of the many years of uninterrupted use. Over the years a number of chairs have been lost due to irreparable wear and tear. Currently urgent repairs are needed to the majority of the chairs including the need for an additional number of new chairs (approximately 30 - 40)

 

We estimate an amount of R10 - R15,000 will be sufficient for this project.

"MAN SHAPES THE BUILDING

 AND THEN THE BUILDING SHAPES MAN"

Sir Winston Churchill

The HBCCA is a firm believer in this quotation from this inspirational, British Statesman. Over the years the HBCCA has been involved in many Imizamo Yethu community 'upliftment' projects and know firsthand the positive effect these projects had on the residents - young and old.

The properties we are currently looking at which need urgent 'TLC' is situated not far from our 'Psalm 1 Corner'-project - further down towards Iziko Lobomi.

Our plans are to do the following to the area in above and below photographs:

1. Remove all rubble and cement pavement and entrance to shacks and house.

1. Replace the wooden fence and varnish.

2. Paint the three shacks in front of the house.

3. Give the main house a fresh coat of paint.

4. Paint the exterior of the corner house (not visible in this photograph)

These changes will absolutely transform this part of Mandela Road!

We are looking forward to receive donations to make this TRANSFORMATION a reality - before the end of the year!

We estimate that only R20 - R30,000 will be needed for this work.

LAPTOP FOR OFFICE

 

 

Our Iziko Lobomi Office is urgently in need of a decent laptop to replace the aging, slow laptop our Centre Manageres, Bridgette Mangcu is currently using. We would like to replace this laptop with a new i5 or i7 machine. Donations towards this need will be much appreciated.

The cost is estimated at approximately R14 - R19,000. Thank you in anticipation!
