African Blessings Heading Bonus Breaks Logo
 
 

Giving back to the community is at the heart of what we do. We’ve touched on a few African Blessings causes before, but this time we’d like to invite you to really get involved.

Donations of cash and kind, or time and energy are of course always welcome! But there are some specific projects that need your help. This is how Bonus Breaks with a Cause came to be.

For every Bonus Break booked, MDC donates R 99 to specific African Blessings causes. Money raised will be reserved for this specific purpose and we can’t wait to tell you about all the exciting happenings that are made possible by the money raised.

 
 
Donkey Icon African Blessings African Blessings
 
  Money raised will go towards:  
 
  Food Icon   The Food Gardens which helps to support neighboring communities who are in need.   Donkey Icon   The well-being of donkeys and horses in these areas.  
                 
  Bus Icon   Driving Dreams – a 34-seater bus is needed to transport the kiddies to excursions, transport donated goods received, and assist the people in the community with transport.   Book Icon   The Early Learning Centre which provides education, nurturing and care and impacts the lives of kids between the ages of 0 and 6.  
                 
  Pawprint Icon   The Community Critter Care Initiative – each and every animal deserves love and the right to be protected. African Blessings works in the communities to provide basic medical treatment and implement preventative measures. Food, bowls, collars and blankets are also made available to pet owners and owners are educated on how to look after their critters.
  Balloon Icon   For these kiddies and critters, each R99 donation goes towards supporting basic needs. The need for safety and security, the need for food and water, the need for learning experiences, and the need to be loved and cared for.
