They take care of mentally handicapped children, many of them orphans as if they are their own.

It takes incredibly selfless people to perform that calling. They struggle to find the funds to feed the residents protein, they manage to feed them eggs once or twice a week.

With the disabled community hidden and being an eyesore, they need more awareness around their cause.

Just like rescue animals, the kids didn't choose to be disabled and orphaned.

Greenpeace!!!

They are an independent environmental campaigning organisation that uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose environmental injustices globally and to bring forth the solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future.
Also, did you know that they don’t take any money from corporations or governments at all and rely on our charity?

Check their site out for more info - https://www.greenpeace.org/africa/en/

Gift of the Givers. They do sterling work and you know all the money goes to their work.
There are too many venerable communities in this country.
If this wins, give the R2,000 to them not me.

Not a charity per se, but Gift Of the Givers does so much amazing work in SA, they provide better disaster relief than our own government.

Love Your Nuts (LYN) is a registered Section 18A, non-profit testicular cancer awareness campaign based in South Africa.

In his thirties, Torsten Koehler, the founder of LYN Foundation, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1995 ironically whilst educating young teenagers about sex education at a school where he was employed as a teacher.

His journey of survival started by openly confronting his thoughts and emotions, relating the reactions of his friends, family and not least, his students, who gave him enormous help and hope. With their encouragement, the German version of his book “Love your nuts” was published in Germany in 2004 and thereafter in English in 2011.

The motivation to start this foundation was inspired a former student who thanked him for making him aware during his awareness sessions at the school they attended:

“Because you made us aware I went to the doctor in time. I’ve got testicular cancer too. I’m 16 and you saved my life”.
Torsten is now sharing his story through the platform of the Love Your Nuts Foundation emphasising how everybody is valuable they are and how fantastic life can be and therefore has a passion for this campaign – summed up in the video below:

"Save the Children is an organization I admire so much. How can you not look at the work they do each year and not say it's amazing?"

The scale of crisis in the world has increased exponentially in recent years. There are more children living in conflict and war zones now. As the coronavirus pandemic has spread to almost every country in the world, the poorest and most disadvantaged children are hurt the hardest.

Its conviction that children have the right to grow up healthy, educated and safe an believe that every child deserves a brighter future.
