Home from Home COVID-19 Response

These are unprecedented and uncertain times for us all and we are so grateful for the amazing support we have received thus far. With the extension of this lockdown however, our Home from Home foster families are facing extra financial and health challenges during this Covid-19 pandemic.

Food costs have increased due to children staying home and not going to school. We need to continue to supply sanitizers and PPEs and also prepare for the inevitability that some of our children will become infected and increased medical expenses will be needed.

Home schooling means printing of worksheets and additional stationery. It is our goal to install a computer in every home.

Our foster mothers are also unable to attend important Support Group Meetings and supervision sessions which means we are using a lot more data to ensure daily contact between our social workers and our foster mothers.

A shopping list of the costs we are needing to cover:

Stationery for each household - R200

Masks and hand sanitizer for each home for a month - R300

Printing of worksheets per household - R300

Thermometers - R400

Face Cloths & Towels - R500

Medical essentials for one home - R500

Food parcels for a family for two weeks - R800

Data for a home for a month - R800

Deep Freezer (to enable less frequent shopping) - R3 000

A computer and printer per household - R10 000
