Facebook Hacked:Siyaphambili Public Apology Statement

Recently there has been some attention given to Siyaphambili Facebook page for there being distasteful inappropriate content being posted under our name. Siyaphambili Facebook page was hacked into and inappropriate content was placed onto it. We take this matter very serious and condemn such behaviour as it goes against our values and ethics as an NGO that advocates for children’s right.

We cannot emphasis the severity of this matter as it as direct attacks on the standing and the work which the organization is doing. We have reported the matter with Facebook administrators and will be keeping a close eye on the page. Please do alert us when and if inappropriate content that has the potential to discredit the work we are doing. In South Africa child neglect and child abuse are realities which Siyaphambili is working on minimizing with Government and other NGO to ensure that our children’s best interest are looked after in accordance with the Children’s Act as stipulated in the South African Constitution and as emphasized by our mandated work within the Siyaphambili Constitution.

 

We reiterate again we condemn this foul behaviour and action will be taken to address this incident.Siyaphambili’s mission is to restore children’s dignity and security by providing a home for them that gives them hope, care, security, protection and comfort. Siyaphambili advocate and protect the rights of children and vulnerable people by providing emotional, physical, health and psychological support to them and the family members who are available and present.

Siyaphambili Eastern Cape Branch

Nosicelo;Sis1 20140826_155728Siyaphambili Orphan Village has opened a new branch in the Eastern Cape in Bedford, in Bongweni Township. The reason for this big move on the part of Siyaphambili is that it has seen the need to have the same services it offers its beneficiaries in Langa Township that they are more needed in the rural outskirts of the Eastern Cape.

The initial phase will start with feeding scheme in the community for the children, elderly and also sickly. The meals will also cater for those who are in the nearby clinic and who are currently taking ARV.We know that HIV/AIDS is still very taboo subject that there are limited support structures in the rural areas and want to provide counselling and after school programmes that will aid the community in combating stereo typing and advance knowledge of HIV/Aids and most importantly a support structure for the most vulnerable and neglected.

If you are keen to volunteer or assists Siyaphambili in any aspect of developing this branch please contact us on the following:

Email: Siyaphambili@gmail.com

Address: 26 Sizakhele Location, Bongweni Township, Bedford 5780

Siyaphambili Founder and Assistant In Horrific Car Accident

Siyaphambili Accident

On the 4th August 2014 Ndileka Xameni ( Director and Founder ) of Siyaphambili and Anele Gqasana  were involved in  tragic car accident on their way to fetch food for the Siyaphambili children. Fortunately no one was harm but the vehicle which they were travelling on was  damaged.

Siyaphambili has been using this vehicle for year and its damage means that the Orphanage will struggle with taking the kids to school, fetching them from their appointment and also fetching the day to day food donations needed to ensure that that organization operates.

 

Ndileka and Anele were not harmed but in shock as the accident happened due to reckless driving of an careless driver. We are glad to report that they are doing well and fully recovered from the shock and injuries of the accident.
