  • Supporting the Healthy Mom and Baby Clinic in Jeffrey’s Bay with fixed costs to allow the clinic’s operations to continue.
  • Financially support the Healthy Mom and Baby Clinic in Jeffreys’s Bay in special projects, for example setting up new activities or realizing an expansion of the clinic.
  • Support the Healthy Mom and Baby Clinic or related mother and child care in other ways than financially, for example through donations in kind and through prayer.
  • Increase involvement in the Netherlands in development projects in and around Jeffrey’s Bay.
