OUR MISSION OUR VISION

Good day

We are a NPO that has formed because of people like us that has know one to talk to. About their psychological problems. Or any other problems they may have. We are here if you have a phone you can be in contact with us. We use the texting platform. Which is more private to our clients. You can reach out for support wherever you are.

Currently we are over run with persons who can't take a break from work to go see a professional we help as far as we can. And make sure they get the necessary support from us.

We have been doing this for a year now and we doing it out of our own pocket, the counselors is volunteers that use their own data to be available when someone reaches out. We try to always reply immediately. We don't have a machine that plays music while you are having a break down. Or being put on hold and your hope just fades with each minute on hold...


We need help to reach more people to help us with our high data usage, i pay up to R20 000 a month for Facebook ads.

Our data a month is up to R5000.


The need is growing and we need more volunteers. Our long term goal is:

To put people at police stations to give immediate counseling to the raped, and abused. That first contact is critical and unfortunately they don't always get the right treatment when reporting an incident, so they walk out.

Hospitals

Help people getting booked in at hospital with an emergency most people find that as the most traumatic experience. The hospital staff is overwhelmed so don't have time to always explain what is going to happen next. That will be the councilors job. Take the trauma away from being admitted. Talk to the families keep them updated.

Abuse Men

Men who are abused we want them to have a safe place because they are out there and nobody takes notice of them. They are also victims, and yes they are Survivors as well.

Youth

Get our numbers out to pupils so they can have someone that will listen to them being bullied, abused, discrimination we want to be there for you.

Abused Woman

Yes there's so many places out there. But at 2 in the morning you are alone. When you need to get out NOW where do you go for help? We want to be able to help you get out get to safety, and get yourself and your thoughts together to be able to take that next move with a clear open mind.


We have a shelter named The Shackz Willie's Haven where there's families in destitute and yes drug addicts young men and women, who has no one that will look after them. Here they have 'ouma' battling her 3rd round with breast cancer yet still have enough strenght to look after them, make sure they eat and stay with them through their bad trips. Yes it's a white shelter so have no government support, no community support. Hannelie does it by prayer and pension.


Please i ask for any assistance you might offer to get this program up and running. We are going to need a lot of people yes. So we can create jobs for quite a lot of unemployed persons.


It might sound absolutely ludicrous to some. But guess what when the Chat Shack started i was told i won't make it. Chat Shack became The Shackz we got registered, we are reaching people who thought they were alone. So yes my dream is doable but with your help. Every share every response brings us closer to forfilling this DREAM.
