They help abandoned, neglected and abused animals...

Their initial intention was to only sterilize as many animals as possible but that quickly expanded to the great work of finding homes for animals and helping them in other ways.
Today they actually mean a lot more, as they include the community and educate people as well.

NSRI as the offer an invaluable service and you never know when you are going to need them from ocean rescues to a dog trying to cross Hartebeespoort Dam.

Uthixo Ulungile creche - Joshua and Rachael Minter and their team are doing an incredible job feeding and educating kids from the rubbish dump informal settlement at Stoney Drift, East London. They have been at it for a while now and it's grown into an amazing community center since starting.

This lady, Nikki, has taken on a tremendous task of looking after animals that have been abandoned and given up..... she relies solely on being publicly funded and with her being a pensioner, she sometimes has to dig into her own bank account to feed and assist the dogs she shelters and strays. . being a pensioner, it does become hard and not everyone is willing to help...

SPCA - without a doubt.
Cruelty, abused and distressed animals cannot fend for themselves. The SPCA do a lot for the animals, and therefore they deserve cash donations, gifts in kind and time, and supporting their fundraising events.

The hardest question to answer… normally I would be decisive and name the SPCA or another outreaching program, but at this time, I believe that children, especially the one’s in early development, should be provided with extra care given the current socioeconomic circumstances and climate.

I would nominate Cotlands, it is an organisation close to me, that I trust, and know that they are doing great work. I would love to see these children and the hard-working people dedicated to them receive a donation.

To quote what Cotlands do in their own words,

https://www.cotlands.org/about-us/

Who we are

Our goal is to help create a more equal and prosperous society by giving its vulnerable children the advantage

Welcome to Cotlands. As an organisation, we are working towards making South Africa a more equal society by creating access to play-based early learning opportunities for young children. Through the generous investments of donors and partners, Cotlands initiates and facilitates innovative, play-based early learning opportunities for young children. Children are provided access to toy library and playgroup programmes aimed at improving school readiness. The programmes are designed to ignite potential through play by enhancing children’s social-emotional development, as well as their cognitive skills which includes creativity, critical thinking and problem solving. The goal is to ensure that children have the required skills to excel when entering formal schooling and to develop holistically for their future success.

I had to post a second one - MSF/Doctor's without borders (www.msf.org.za) are doing insanely good work and mostly the last hope for many unprivileged people!
