Our partners in South Africa, Changemakers, have been able to continue their work with men who are struggling with addiction despite lockdowns in South Africa over the last year as the country battles with Covid-19.Their residential rehabilitation programme supports the men to overcome their addiction, rebuild family relationships and provide skills training so can gain employment or develop sustainable income for themselves. The programme is underpinned with a desire to share Christ through a daily discipleship programme.
Many of the men leave the programme by returning to their families as they look for work, however some do not have that support network in place and so our partners have been looking at way of helping them further.
Earlier this year they rented some land close to their centre, Moriah House and the men on the programme helped build a small cabin for 2-3 men to stay in while looking for work. The cabin is close enough to the centre so the men can continue to gain support from the staff team at Moriah House.
