On the 7th of June, a group of Geo Stott staff were delighted to donate food parcels to the Sparrow Rainbow Village. Sparrow Rainbow Village is an Aids Hospice, adults and children, Home Based Care Education, Training and Counselling facility which was founded on 14 February 1992 by Rev. Corine McClintock. It was indeed an honour and indeed fulfilling to make a difference today. This will not end, and Geo Stott will continue to make donations to the less fortunate.
Reverend Doctor Corine McClintock, the founder and director of Sparrow Rainbow Village warmly accepted the donation on behalf of the NGO. She expressed to us the struggles of this community which houses close to 300 people.
According to Corine McClintock, the NGO has recently faced some challenges, mostly in the form of funding, to provide services to its less fortunate residents. The Sparrow Ministry is an NGO which relies on government funding and goodwill, but due to tough economic times and scandals at other NGO’s such as the Esidemeni tragedy, funding has been dwindling.
This has resulted in the retrenchment of many employees. McClintock has also accentuated the NGO’s need for security. Sparrow continues to suffer from robberies of valuable items such as vehicles, fridges, and stoves; as well as damage to property caused by the theft of piping for their water supply.
This embattled NGO is in dire straits, and is appealing for financial aid. Please help the Sparrow rainbow Village before it is forced to close its doors.
