Game Changers’ plans for communities within the Durban South area does not stop there as they have set goals for the organisation to reach.

 

“Our short term goal is to get funding for a safe house for drug addicts. We are also trying to get funding for a feeding scheme for one meal a day and lunches for kids. Our next project is in winter in Welbedacht, where we will be handing out blankets, warm clothing, meals and more. We are looking for sponsors to help with our initiatives,” said Hughes.
