Covid 19 relief – cooking for lots of children in this time of Pandemic.
Food Forward SA has partnered with the Solidarity Fund to ensure that we reach the most vulnerable households in our community with essential basic food provisions during the lock down, which has now been extended by a further 2 weeks. FoodForward SA warehouse in our region has contacted Siyaphambili so we can collect the stock from the warehouse and distribute the food parcels – enough to make up food parcels for 150 families, all done with our volunteers.
Beyond Zero trained the staff at Siyaphambili from Nov. 11th – 20th, 2019 in sustainability – how to manage, monitor and evaluate. Siyaphambili is most grateful and will now be able to put into place structure, policies and follow-through from all that has been learned.
Wish by Amanda Rose features both Fine and Fashion Jewelry. Charity is very important to us here at MLG Jewelry. Starting in January of 2018, each month we will be making a donation to Siyaphambili, which is an orphan village based in South Africa. Our donation will help children and young people who are affected by AIDS, and who suffer from food insecurity and poverty. https://mlgjewelry.com/collections/wishbyamandarose
Siyaphambili is most grateful to Amanda and her jewelry line for its new, ongoing donations to our work.
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 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:
Address: 26 Sizakhele Location, Bongweni Township, Bedford 5780
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.
