Care Buddies is a section 21 Non-profit organization that was founded in
white River Mpumalanga in 2003.
The idea of Care Buddies was started in 2003 after a series of visits to
Rustig Old Age Home. This opened our eyes to the loneliness many of the
residents were experiencing. Birthdays Christmas and long weekends were
particularly bad times for these people.
Our number of Care Buddies has grown from the original 3 Buddies in 2003 to
70 in 2012. Not only has the Buddies grown in White River but the
organization has also spread its wings and is now functioning across South
Africa. We are even approached by people from other towns who want to start
similar activities in their respective areas. Care Buddies are now
functioning in: Nelspruit, Barberton, Gordon's Bay, Boksburg and Leeudoringstad.
