SECURE OUR SPACE

one-off gifts to build a security fence to keep MAD and the children who come to MAD safe.

We want to protect the MAD centre with a 2m steel security fence. Our old wire fence has rusted over 20 years of service and no longer provides a strong barrier to the outside world. The rising cost of living has created an increase in house breaking and theft in our area as people battle to keep out of poverty. In recent months food from our kitchen, our wifi router and doors from our new toilets were stolen, in just one night. We have an alarm but by the time a response patrol reaches us from town any intruders are long gone. Unfortunately insurance cover doesn't extend to our location. Working with a local supplier we estimate costs to be £3,750 (R88,000) to cover materials and installation.

BRIGHTER FUTURES

monthly gifts that change a child's life with art, education and HOPE

Your regular gift will support a child to find their brighter future at MAD. Young people say their MAD journey changed their lives. We build long-term relationships with vulnerable children, supporting them as they grow and make positive changes in their lives which in turn transform their future

FOOD FOR LIFE

one-off gifts that tackle hunger sustainably and make sure no child at MAD goes home hungry

Poverty is reality at MAD and many families struggle to feed their children. Your gift will support our expanding network of productive food gardens where children work together to grow delicious veggies to make healthy, nutritious meals that feed body and soul and fuel the potential of each child

ANNIE'S FUND

Annie Darby 1959 – 2023

Many children in homes around MAD grow up in the shadow of violence and abuse. Children live the emotional turmoil and terror of witnessing abuse and being abused themselves. Often becoming withdrawn and underachieving at school. Many use street drugs to escape reality. Weekends often trigger abuse, Crowded homes, poor living conditions and what little money the family has is often spent on alcohol

Annie's Fund will provide weekend retreats where kids can be kids in a safe environment. With support from experienced facilitators, children will discover the joy of being part of a team. Playing games, tackling challenges, gaining skills and confidence. Above all having fun. Feeling good about themselves and beginning a path to a brighter future
