Restoring hope for a community saviour

Restoring hope for a community saviour

Eunice Mweli is mother to orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children. But she has been struggling to make ends meet, until The Big Favour stepped in.

Listen to the story here: 

We had an email from Eunice Mweli to tell us about her centre that she established more than 20 years ago.

Siyajabula, an NPO in the Embo Valley in Bothas Hill, was founded in 1998, and is now home to 46 children who come from different rural areas and range in age from birth to 32.

Eunice, the founder of the home, was previously a teacher, but quit her job to dedicate her life to looking after orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children. She started the centre after taking in physically-challenged twins whose mother passed away, leaving the children orphaned, and since then she’s taken in children from various backgrounds.

With the little help that Eunice gets, she battles on a monthly basis to make ends meet and even buying the very basics like bread and milk is a huge struggle.

They have an annual Christmas Ride Fundraiser which is coming up on the 30th of November and this fundraiser enables the club to support numerous charitable causes
