We believe that the strength lies in unity so we work in close coalition with many government and non-government organizations when the relief work is needed. We distribute food and drinking water in disaster struck areas, water in drought afflicted areas and try to mobilize the help from community. We have worked with many organizations. South African disaster management department, operation hydrate, Gift of the Givers and operation SA to name a few. To keep in touch with our latest work follow us.

MedBot is a chatbot for both Telegram and Facebook Messenger. It picks up your location and sends you a list of nearest hospitals, doctors and pharmacies complete with their contact number and opens their location in Google Maps. We have developed this bot in partnership with Creative Melon to assist travelers and other people caught in emergency situations. Access it on Facebook Messenger or Telegram.
RegBot is a chatbot for Telegram. It lets the users quickly check if a certain vehicle number plate is on our community maintained database for lookout vehicles. It also lets you add new number plates to the database. You can access it here.
Free Directory listings
To bring the power of advertisement to small scale businesses and individuals who can not afford to do so, we have launched a free directory listing site.
The purpose of this site is twofold – community can have all the information they need at their fingertips and those who cannot afford to advertise their skills or businesses get an exposure to wider audience.
You can apply for a free listing on our site if you are:
• emergency services (ambulances, paramedics etc.)
• medical facilities (doctors, hospitals, labs etc.)
• NGOs and humanitarian workers
• education facilities (schools, tuition centers, cottage schools, extra classes etc.)
• small scale service providers (handyman, plumber, electrician, gardener etc.)
• cottage industries (seamstress, selling stuff from home etc.)
We charge a small fee from the other businesses (much less than commercial directory sites) and this amount goes towards the upkeep of the directory site (web hosting and web maintenance expenses).
Project Dream Catcher
Because dreams don’t work unless you do. We provide interest free micro loans to people who want to make a difference in their lives or the lives of others.

Grow Your Own
Growing your own food is like growing your own cash. We are passionate about small scale agriculture and grow your own culture.
We help people in setting up small back yard gardens, community gardens, school gardens etc. which not only provides them with fresh food for themselves but often enough surplus to share or giveaway or even sell. We have partnered with many companies who manufacture growing tunnels and we can usually provide growing tunnels at a very economic price. Plus, we have passionate individuals who like to devote their time in teaching others how to grow their own food.

We want to give our future generation an opportunity to explore the 21st century literacy – computer programming- for free.
Code Club is a computer programming/coding club initiated by Helps SA as a gathering place for coding enthusiasts. Targeted towards kids of ages 7-15, this club offers them an opportunity to meet like-minded kids, learn by doing projects together, collaborate with each other on their projects, get help from mentors and meet new friends. We want the focus to be on self-learning through exploration and collaboration among kids. This is not a computer class but for the beginners we have many projects which we will teach them basics of programming.
Creating awareness about the harms of drugs and substance abuse is the only way we can save our society. We do educational talks and programs to create this awareness.
