1. HOPE Cape Town - Donations

Mammies for HOPE

The project of "Mammies for HOPE" of Monika Rosenkranz was initiated in 2011. The project depends on the support of Mammies for Mammies. Monika Rosenkranz sponsors material for the mothers in the Ithemba ward to make bookmarks, bracelets and necklaces. This is done in groups led by Monika Rosenkranz and Sonia Daniels while their children sleep or are being entertained in the playroom. Bookmarks, bracelets and necklaces are sent to Mammies in Germany, who sell these on Christmas and other markets. We thank Monika and all involved "Mammies" for the wonderful idea!

Donation for research purposes

After a visit to HOPE Cape Town the BIPPOP Foundation from Lichtenstein has donated generously to HOPE Cape Town Trust for HIV/AIDS research. This donation will be allocated to benefit research projects of the University of Stellenbosch, in the field of HIV/AIDS.

Thank you!

HOPE Cape Town is very happy and grateful for the constant and tireless support of all the volunteers helping hands that regularly provide the young patients and their caregivers on the Ithemba station with food, blankets, toys, candy, clothes, and toiletries and much more. A big thank you goes to all these people, who give so much of their private time, their money and their energy, so that the children in the ward of Ithemba feel better.

 A long-time volunteer worker is Marchelle Hendricks; who since 2007 supports HOPE Cape Town with donations and wherever needed. Furthermore, she is a great Ambassador for HOPE Cape Town in South Africa and wherever she travels in the world. A big thank you, Marchelle for your support! 

2. HOPE Cape Town events

 HOPE Gala

Under the motto "From classical to rock" the7th successful HOPE GALA took place on the 27th of October 2012 in Dresden. Many national and international artists performed again this year, waiving their profit to make a personal contribution to the success of this charity event. For more information, see A big thank you goes to the organizers and sponsors and especially to the main organizer Viola Klein.

 Bellville library

A fair at the Bellville library took place from 15 to 22 September 2012. The library is visited of 45 000 people every month. The fair aimed to support small businesses and entrepreneurship in this area. HOPE Cape Town was invited to participate in this exhibition. Our health care worker Charlene Felix represented HOPE Cape Town. The fair was a great success, and we were able to raise the profile of HOPE Cape Town in this part of the metropole significantly.

 Visit of the Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany

On August 16, 2012, HOPE Cape Town welcomed the new Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Mr Roland Herrmann, in Cape Town; Mr Herrmann was accompanied by his daughter, as well as by Consul Klaus Stross and his wife. We presented our work in the Ithemba ward and in the communities.

BBBEE certificate

In September we could successfully renewed our BBBEE (broad based black economic empowerment) status. This status aims to align the structure of the workforce in companies so that it corresponds with and is representative of the socio-demographic structure of the population.

New Board members

We welcome Mrs Ruth Neudeck-Kraus and Mrs Minka Woermann as new board members of the HOPE town Association and look forward to a successful cooperation.

Interview for the post of "Program Facilitator"

Currently we are interviewing for the recently created position "Program Facilitator". We hope that we can occupy this by early 2013, to expand on the established successes of the project work.

 Replacement Mfuleni/Durbanville

Furthermore we are reappointing the positions of the health care workers in Mfuleni and Durbanville, because these employees have found new challenges in public health, based on their education as HOPE Cape Town Community Health worker. Babalwa Lumko is now working as a clerk at the Mfuleni clinic and Nombulelo Kama now works as a health worker for the City of Cape Town.

 In addition, we also welcome new team members André Gildenhuys and Silke Ammer. André will be working with the eLearning project and Silke supports the administration of HOPE Cape Town Association and Trust.
