Operation Restoration- Two ladies Giving much more than 67 Minutes for Community
Traditionally 18th July is a day where people dedicate 67 minutes of their time for goodwill, good cause or charity.
Krugersdorp has been blessed with two ladies who not only give their 67 minutes on Mandela day for good cause. They unconditionally give 24 hours a day in helping their community.

Melodie believes in Hand-up, not a Hand-out. The Cradle of Hope is an independent, social upliftment organisation that strives to assist women and their children who are destitute and in need of psycho-social assistance, child care, comfortable safe housing, nutritious food, trauma debriefing, individual and group counselling and life-skills orientation. We offer self-supporting skills for example needlework classes, jewellery manufacturing and basic computer training. ”
This quote from their website
“is a Ministry focussing on assisting women and children
in desperate need.
We offer HELP and HOPE regardless of race or religion, offering a
“HAND-UP” and not a “HAND-OUT”
BECAUSE WE CARE!!”

Charlotte Du Plessis ( Director Women of Substance
This quote from their website :
WOS offers a platform that EMPOWERS, EDUCATES, UPSKILLS, CONNECTS, NETWORKS and SUPPORTS women.
To impact the life of every South African woman by empowering her to achieve her personal and financial goals.
Gratitude – Integrity – Commitment – Respect – Education – Friendship
Once again these two ladies have collaborated in the form of Operation Restoration.
Woman of substance has pledged to support the cradle of hope by restoring a dilapidated house they bought in Krugersdorp West and turn it into a place of safety for destitute women and their children . The need is far greater than they realise and cases are turned away due to lack of space in their current house.
The official launch of the project started on Mandela Day 18 July 2016.
They cannot due this on their own and appealing to the community , entrepreneurs established business people for support.
Please contact Charlotte Du Plessis 082 553 0061 or join the Facebook Community support group.
They will soon have a webpage with more information on the website.
Thank you Melodie and Charlotte,
