The Shackbuilder: A Window to the World “By building something decent for people not only restores their dignity but also gives them a chance to rebuild their lives.  As an educational psychologist I was taken aback when I saw the truly bad conditions that children in informal settlements live in. These children and youth live in extreme poverty and conditions where there is violence.  This stunts their growth and they do not reach their full potential.  They cannot study if there is no food and electricity.  In winter the weather conditions are worse because their homes are flooded and it leads to illnesses such as tuberculosis” Quinton Adams, The Shackbuilder The banking details.

Watershed Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation
Spokesperson: Stephne Jackson Next Sterilisation opportunity 22 May 2020. Watershed Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Fund About Watershed Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Fund NPO 085-455 WATERSHED ANIMAL RESCUE and REHABILITATION FUND is a fund that assists Rescue Centres in times of need. We do not fund the day-to-day running costs of the rescue centres, but assist in raising funds for, and creating awareness of, sterilisation  programmes, emergency medical care and/or supplying food to rescue centres in desperate need to feed their animals which they cannot afford to do with existing funds. We only get involved in projects that we feel are the most desperate and then try and raise funds by creating awareness through our animal network data base as well as the public at large. We operate purely on donations from the public. Each and every person who donates money knows exactly where their money is being utilised as we request that it is stipulated when a donation is made. We, at WARRF, recently made the news when we undertook the huge task as ‘official’ Animal Rescue to bring all the dogs back from the border, rehabilitate, house, feed, medicate, sterilise and care for them until claimed or re-homed. These dogs were part of the Illegal Dog Trafficking Syndicates who have been transporting dogs illegally across our borders into African States destined to be used for dog-fighting and the like. To date, we have successfully rescued over 50 dogs and also funded the first rescue mission. We raised an amount of R100 000 to ensure the success of this mission and will continue raising funds to help and assist these dogs until legislation is changed stopping this awful trade. If you would like to support this mission, please reference your donation, “dog trafficking”. Our banking details for Donations are as follows: W.A.R.R.F Standard Bank Account Number: 072285702 Universal Code: 05 10 01 Swift Code: SBZAZAJJ
