We made a difference – #notoxenophobia
– Report by Riana Scheepers

On Sunday 19 April Rhema West’s 12 Baskets Foundation reached out to support some foreign nationals that had fell victim to recent xenophobic attacks. They are being temporarily accommodated at Christ Church in Mayfair.

The camp officially became available on 18 April and took in 12 people, currently there are about 20 people at the camp. Volunteers from the 12 Baskets Foundation was quick to respond to the call for help.

Several bags of clothes and toys were donated to those finding shelter at Mayfair. Most of the donated clothes came from our Rhema West members and covered all age groups for adults and children.

We took some time to meet the victims. They are ordinary lovable people with beautiful personalities just trying to make a better living for themselves and their children.

It was such a blessing that we could be ready to help our community and give this donation. Thank you to each and every person that donated something. You have made a big difference!

Rhema West Empowerment Programme – Driving School
– Report by Riana Scheepers

12 Baskets PhotosIn 2014 we started the driving school project with the main aim to empower our members, help them be independent and to help them get better job opportunities. We partnered with a driving school that has an excellent track record and a good pass rate.

Our very first candidate was Fondy Ngoedi. He had his learner’s licence but did not have the means to acquire his driver’s licence. We signed him up under our programme, he went for his driving lessons and is now ready to do his driving test. We wish him all success!

If you think you are a candidate for getting your driver’s licence through this programme, or if you would like to support this venture financially, please email

Rhema West Feeding Scheme – Soup Kitchen
– Report by Riana Scheepers

Soup KitchenOur church has been contributing towards the Emmanual Soup Kitchen in Noordgesig from late 2014. The Soup kitchen is run by Sister Glover, an 86 year old lady that has dedicated her life to serving God through helping others. She used her pension to help feed over 600 people from Noordgesig and surrounding areas like Orlando, Meadowlands and other parts of Soweto.

She sends this message to Rhema West: “Versterk jou broeders, en eer God. (Strengthen your brothers and honor God.) That is all that I want to achieve. Thank you for helping me every month, it makes a huge difference.”

Rhema West is blessed to be able to be a blessing unto others.
