June is another Charity Month at DoneDeal and this month for each ad placed 30 cent will be given to the Niall Mellon Township Trust. The trust was established in 2002 with the aim of providing quality social housing for the impoverished communities in the townships of South Africa. Did you know that there are 4.3 million people living in shacks in townships across South Africa? With the generosity and support received by Irish people and from across the globe, the trust has managed to build 13,500 homes and house 80,000 people to date.
In addition, each year Irish volunteers and friends from across the globe head to South Africa in week long “Building Blitzes”. Click here for some video coverage from 2009. Maybe one or two of us here in DoneDeal might put on our hard hats and head out there in November to give a helping hand!
With your help, we want to raise funds for such an important cause. If you wish to get involved you can get more information on the website.
