Philani Child Health & Nutrition Project
Click here to donate now.


As an independent non-governmental organization working with the poorest of the poor, Philani is dependent upon funders, large and small, to be able to continue its essential work with children and mothers in the informal settlements around Cape Town.

We are fortunate to be blessed with a number of long-term supporters, but our need is always greater. The more support we receive, the more our work can extend to assist ever more impoverished mothers and children.

We send out heartfelt gratitude to all our supporters, including the following:
