Christmas Drive: Hope is Never Silent

It’s Christmas time, and with it comes the dawn of 2017!

We have BIG dreams for 2017 that we are wanting to make into reality. Dreams to impact the community, but we also can’t do it without the help of the community.

So here’s the plan:

The What:

This Christmas SALT will be raising funds to go towards the health centre, that will be constructed on the property behind View Church, for the Table View community. We are so excited about this project, as we are trusting for R200 000 for the container construction.

 The Why:

SALT’s vision is to build a community based health center offering basic medical services and counseling where people are treated with dignity.

More and more people are struggling to afford medical aid, cannot afford to see private health care doctors, clinics and hospitals are understaffed and hours are spent at clinics and hospitals waiting in line to be seen for both small and serious health problems. Hours are lost at work, people are left with questions about their health unanswered. Poverty separates those who can afford good medical services and those who can’t. People are left without hope and in many cases serious health issues are left unseen to. Our aim is to provide professional health services to those in need. Imagine a young girl, pregnant, alone and afraid. Imagine a women with  cancer, afraid, needing her fears and concerns addressed and explained. Imagine a family needing counselling due to violence or death. We can be part of the solution. Where people can come, receive medical attention, advise and counselling. Where people can receive Hope to continue the life God had planned for them.

The How:

Throughout December, at all View Church Sunday services (Table View, Milnerton and Sunningdale) and at all of our Christmas Markets, SALT will have a stand at which one can make a donation and receive a birch-wood, laser-cut heart with our “HOPE IS NEVER SILENT” slogan printed on it if your donation is over R50. We will also be taking photos of every single person who gives a donation, no matter how big or small, for a collage we plan to make for the Health Centre.

Find us at all View Church December services, across all our campuses

and at our Christmas Markets:

Sunningdale 4 Dec

Table View 16-17 Dec

Hope to see you there! Lets change the community together!
