35 For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in. 36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and come to You?’

40 “He answered, ‘Truly I say to you, as you have done it for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you have done it for Me.’

 Matt 25: 35-40



The Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata) stands proud as a true symbol of life, hope and idealism in Africa.

Life Link Kempton Park is a non-profit organisation established in 2001, after realising that there was a growing need for a facility where teenagers or women faced with an unwanted pregnancy could go for information and help.



Established in 2006, Comeback Mission (CBM) was initiated by concerned people driven by a strong passion and desire to create change and give hope to their community and the surrounding communities affected by: Poverty, High School Dropouts, Alcohol & Drug Abuse, HIV/AIDS, Domestic Violence, Teenage Pregnancy, High Unemployment Rate and Single Parent Households.



Rays of Hope started operating with one project in 1991 and has grown into a network of nine, community-based projects, focusing on unemployment, health care, education, and orphans & vulnerable children.



Modimo ke Setshabelo is a fully functional after-care facility situated in the heart of Thokoza, Alberton. The facility was established by the Bedfordview Methodist Church along with the Thokoza Methodist Church in 2003, and aims to provide aid to orphaned children who have been affected by HIV/AIDS.
