LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY OF HOPE

Your generous support to Breadline Africa has helped us achieve so much. Since 1993, we have assisted over 500 projects that make a real difference uplifting poor communities in Africa “ helping people to help themselves".  Breadline Africa is one of the biggest converters of old shipping containers for poverty relief in Southern Africa. We have already recycled, refurbished and placed more than 175 containers in poor communities throughout Southern Africa to provide much-needed services like soup kitchens, classrooms, workshops, libraries, ablution blocks and health clinics.

Click here to view some of the containers we have placed thanks to legacies left to us by generous donors.

WHY I AM LEAVING A LEGACY

"I have been involved with Breadline Africa now for many many years. I was first introduced through a letter that arrived asking for support for one of their wonderful projects. What really hooked me was how appreciative Breadline Africa was of any donation I sent them. Edna Titus has become a very dear friend of mine. She keeps me updated on all the projects I supported and made me feel I was making a difference to the most vulnerable in our society, the poor. Breadline Africa depend solely on donations and bequests and put this money to such wonderful use in all the projects they support to help people become self-sufficient – like Cans4 Skills and other projects providing medical care, teaching and feeding schemes. Breadline Africa is all about helping people to help themselves and give them back their dignity. To see the happy faces of the children they have looked after and fed would light up any room!

It gives me great pleasure to leave a Bequest in my will towards this wonderful organisation. Love and caring can travel across continents."

WANT TO KNOW MORE

If you already have a Will and want to add a bequest to Breadline Africa, please visit a solicitor or Will Writer to add a legal codicil specifying the terms of your gift.

If you do not have a Will, you should visit a solicitor or Will Writer and draw one up. Making a Will brings the peace of mind of knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of in the future and your final wishes are respected and carried out.

Remember to review your Will from time to time. If you want to make any changes, get legal assistance. Do not make any changes yourself or this could invalidate your Will.

If you are considering leaving a legacy gift to Breadline Africa in your Will, please let us know. Although your Will is a confidential and private document, we would welcome the opportunity to thank you for this most generous gesture, and to have the chance to plan with your gift will be used.
