Currently, it costs us around R4000 per month to fully provide for and support a child. Although Heatherdale receives a state subsidy, this covers only a small percentage of our daily running costs. Additional funds to run the Home efficiently and effectively are therefore an absolute necessity.
Fortunately, the William Marsh Will Trust provides us with a monthly cash injection. We also send out numerous letters of appeal to organisations and companies – some of which meet with favourable responses.
We are extremely grateful to our regular donors who have supported us so loyally over the years – without their assistance, Heatherdale would not have been able to deliver the services to the community it has been (for the last 80 years!).
Various organisations and individual members of the church and the surrounding community have also been a tremendous source of inspiration – both spiritually and materially.
