Belinda:  "It feels great to know that we've given them a goal in life. Some of the children that we've placed in local schools are getting top marks."

Mount Moriah Ministries is a Registered Non-Profit Making Organisation.
NPO Reg No:  020-338   PBO Reg No: 93001567

How did we get involved?  Gordon's eldest daughter, Nicola, became involved through the contacts of her husband who is with Unilever, and both Nicola and coleauge Marie are active in fund-raising.  We are grateful to Nicola for organising the visit to the Project whilst we were in Durban visiting her, and also to Marie, for introducing us to Eric and Belinda and for showing us round.

A few years ago, two bereft and hungry small orphans turned up at Eric and Belinda's door.  They were taken in, cleaned, clothed, fed and educated.  The two children now spend their days in the school room which Eric has built at the back of the house.
 
The word spread. Today, Eric and Belinda host, for day care, up to three hundred children from the nearby Nkobongo Township.
 
The Gilberts provide a daily meal, bath and clothing, medication and education.  The school ethic includes discipline and manners along with basic literacy.  Children then go on to the local schools.

The Gilberts have opened their hearts and their home to heartbreakingly poor children.  Funds are needed for on-going care and foodstuffs and to pay teachers, care assistants and to train volunteers.  For the cost of what for us is a round in the pub, or a fattening take-away meal, a great deal can be done for these children.  A little money goes a long way.  Please contact Eric and Belinda for details of where to send your contribution.

The project caters for orphans and children of unemployed parents, or caregivers in the cases of families decimated by HIV/AIDS.
For adults and parents the project offers sewing, baking and household maintenance classes.  The Gilberts have loaned their own land for the community vegetable garden, where locals grow food.
