The story of The Farm

The story of The Farm

The Farm is an orphanage for 52 children who have lost their parents, whose parents can't care for them, who have been abandoned or abused.

Don and Linda McKenzie, the owners of The Farm, owned a wood-cutting business for 15 years that employed about 40 locals from the area. Unfortunately, a number of workers passed away as a result of HIV/Aids. Their children were left behind on the farm as they had no other family to care for them.

What they need?

The Lunga Foundation wants to help The Farm to improve its facilities and the living environment of the children. Currently, The Farm does not receive financial support from the government for many of the children, since it does not comply with the official rules for orphanages. If they did, the caretakers would receive R320 (approximately 20 Euros) for each child living on The Farm. For those children officially in custody of the farm, financial support would even be R1200 (approximately 80 Euros).

Realised Projects

The Lunga Foundation was established in August 2013. In recent years we have been able to realise many beautiful projects together with Zulu Beadz. Below an overview of our main actions and achievements.
