Call 2 Care send their utmost appreciation to Future Foundations for making it possible to educate, develop skills and support our communities. Novus Holdings' commitment to making a sustainable difference in communities in which they operate leaves our hearts full of gratitude!
By creating avenues for Corporate Responsibility and investment, Call 2 Care were able to bridge the gap between the needs of a vulnerable community with those that can provide a helping hand. The harvest at Zusakhe is an excellent example of a community outreach program with a difference which delivers a sustainable benefit to the community by empowering them to grow their own food with the continuous support from the Call 2 Care team. Some time ago, the Novus team were bought on site as corporate volunteers in order to assist with building these water wise gardens that now make it possible for Zusakhe to grow their own food.
