Love in Action

Love in Action is a programme created to support people infected and affected with HIV/Aids. The programme offers love and acceptance and provides tools for the participants to learn self-acceptance and the restoration of dignity.

CBM provides numerous services to Love in Action participants to include: Transportation- The nearest hospital to receive ARV’s and monthly medical exams is approximately 20km away. Many people living with HIV are physically too weak to take public transport and are unable to pay the necessary fares to travel that distance.

Food Relief- We offer food parcels to 120 families weekly. Many of these families are affected by HIV /AIDS and the parcels provide help with nutritional requirements needed for taking ARV’s. Additionally, the high unemployment rate necessitates the need for many single mothers to obtain food relief to feed their families.

Soup Kitchen -Currently 500 children are fed once a week through the feeding project.

Bread project- CBM facilitates a weekly group known as The Bread Project, which provides therapy, unconditional love, support and acceptance.

Family care and support – Many families need assistance during times illness and hospitalizations, especially mothers with young children. When mothers are too ill to care for their children, Love in Action offers support and guidance.

Spirituality- CBM facilitates weekly spiritual outreach programs operating as Evangelism outreach to the community, Wednesday’s fellowship open door, Thursday Bible study, Sunday fellowship and Sunday school; these ministries has and will always operate in a Christ like attitude of unconditional love, support, acceptance and prayer. Spirituality provides healing and restoration to numerous families and individuals attending weekly.

Burial assistance-The Love in Action programme has assisted many families to lay loved ones to rest in a dignified manner.

Helping Hands Heavenly Valley Pre-school

The Helping Hands Heavenly Valley Pre-school is located in Heavenly Valley, an informal settlement housing 135 people living in shacks. The community faces many challenges, including poverty with an 80% unemployment rate, drug and alcohol abuse, and domestic violence. Additionally, more than 60% of the community is HIV/AIDS positive.

Members of the Heavenly Valley Community requested assistance from Come Back Mission in creating a safe, learning environment to prepare their preschool children for primary school. The Helping Hands Pre-school was created in response to this request. The Pre-school previously operated from a shack and served +- 30 children coming mainly from unemployed & HIV/AIDS affected & infected families. Pre-school care and meals are provided by mothers from the community who receive a basic stipend from CBM.

Come Back Mission, in partnership with Dave Coppini, Deborah Lindsay and Amelia Budler designed as well as raised funds for the upgrade of the current small pre-school in a shack to a new 2-classroom building.

This new partnership is also providing the means to send up to 4 young women from Heavenly Valley on a 2-year course in Early Childhood Development Training. The goal is to give the kids of Heavenly Valley the chance of a better future through a proper educational foundation.

    Our objectives:
  • Upgrade the current Pre-School – from an old asbestos hut to 2 proper classrooms, a kitchen, store room and safe play area which has been achieved. Train up to 4 local women in Early Childhood Development (ECD) up to National Certificate “Level 4? still in progress.
