Help Life 4 U Foundation with 5 volunteers for 1-4 hours for Widows and Orphans Easter Charity Event

Need Background

Volunteers needed to help in preparing meals and assisting with food distribution to the widows and orphans on the 1st of April 2017.

Life 4 U Foundation will be hosting Widows and Orphans Easter Charity Event, Themed: Caring for the Destitute. The event will be hosted on Saturday the 1st of April 2017 from 11am to 2pm at Life 4 U Foundation offices in Tembisa.

The main objective of our Thusa Sechaba quarterly charity events is to help the most impoverished and marginalised widows and orphans to have hope in life and to ensure that everyone around our communities are not secluded, starved and deprived of human dignity and the right to live happy descent lives.

This year our Easter charity event will be hosting 70 most impoverished widows and orphans from Tembisa, Ivory Park and Katlehong; and we aim to embrace and show them love by spoiling them with delicious meals, and also giving them food parcels and well-kept clothes and shoes.

Community members can support the event by donating well-kept clothes for the widows and orphans, also donation of long life food can be appreciated.
Life 4 U Foundation can be contacted on 0791693705, 0795969099. Life4ufoundation@workmail.co.za. The event will be hosted at our offices in Tembisa@ no 303 March 21 Street in Moriting.

Stay safe

  1. Don’t pass any personal information to people you haven’t met offline before
  2. When meeting one of your contacts offline for the first time, always be sure to arrange to meet in a public place.
  3. Make sure that you are not left alone with someone that you have never met before.
  4. Know where you’re going. If you’re headed off the beaten track or into an unfamiliar part of town, be sure you have directions and a GPS or map book.
  5. If you feel unsafe, consult the person in charge and let him or her know.
  6. Avoid wearing expensive jewellery: it could get damaged, lost or stolen.
  7. Ask, ask, ask! If you’re worried about something or concerned about your safety in a certain situation, ask the person in charge.
  8. Look out for hazards. Every job has its hazards—even jobs you don’t get paid to perform. For example, if you’re volunteering at an animal shelter, be sure to ask whether the animals are likely to bite and how to avoid it.

Keep in contact

  1. Once you respond to a need, we will send your contact details to the relevant cause. They should get in contact with you soon.
  2. If you don’t hear from the cause, contact them by visiting the ‘About the cause’ page.
  3. Be sure you have the telephone number of your contact handy when you head out to volunteer.
  4. Make sure you’ve organised a good meeting spot and have accurate directions.

Stick to your commitments

  1. Don't overcommit. You can create more problems than you solve if you keep missing the volunteering time you’ve committed to.

Volunteer around your strengths

  1. You probably have some fantastic skills that our causes can really make use of.
  2. Use the skills of your profession to help causes in need. A designer can help to design posters or signage for a cause; a teacher can help to tutor children, and a plumber can help fix taps.
  3. Use your hobbies to help out. Perhaps you’re an avid gardener who can help to set up a vegetable patch for a cause, or perhaps you’re a fantastic cook who can provide a meal once per month to a charity. We’re always looking.
  4. Use volunteering as an opportunity to enhance your skills. Interested in writing? Perhaps you can help an animal shelter with their weekly newsletter.
  5. All skills are useful. Perhaps you’re great at organising and can help a charity with a spring clean. Or perhaps you’re a great storyteller and can read stories once per month at an orphanage.
  6. Avoid volunteering activities that don’t suit your strengths. If you’re not good with children, don’t volunteer to help out at a school.
