our outreach programmes
Here at Summerstrand United Church we currently have two outreach programmes that we work with. If you would like to help or donate financially please contact us.
Kleinskool community projects
In 2003 a partnership was established between Summerstrand United Church and the Kleinskool community. Kleinskool is located in a very poor area of Bethelsdorp, just off the Old Uitenhage Road, in Port Elizabeth.
Initially a Children’s Feeding Scheme was established, operating from the RDP home of Ruth Mcinga (Stompie). From her yard and in the street approximately 150 children were fed 4 days a week.
