Support Neighbours by supporting their move

Neighbours is an intentional Christian community that stands in solidarity with the residents of Hillbrow and other communities deeply impacted by poverty, inequality and injustice around South Africa. We want to become good friends to our neighbours and good neighbours to our friends.

The Branken family has been on an extended sabbatical and has been living in the Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg for the past 10 months getting freshly inspired. In January 2019 they will be returning to their work into Hillbrow (living just across the road from Hillbrow) to start a new Neighbours site. They are fresh and ready with lots of new ideas.

Watch the video below to learn more about their work and find out how you can help.

Please consider committing to giving once off, monthly or both. They currently need:
- R 35,000 for relocation costs (for various deposits and the move)
- R 35,000 additional monthly support for the work. If you feel you can contribute towards either of these please click on one of the links below.
