Ons Huis Trus

2009-09-04

Diep in die Berg and Champ sponsored a fund raising event for Ons Huis Trust that was organised by one of the Mr SA Finalists of 2010, Mr Stiaan Ras. The event was held on 4 September 2009 at Diep in die Berg.

ONS HUIS is a project established by the Charity Commission of the Elarduspark Dutch Reformed Church's Presbytery. It was born out of the faith and determination of a group of parents who kept on believing that, with its acceptance and support, their mentally handicapped children would be able to live and work as normally as possible within the community. This is also what they communicated to the presbytery. The project enjoys the support of the Dutch Reformed Church congregations of Elarduspark, Moreleta Park and Oosterlig (Pretoria).

They get no government assistance and depend on contributions from the parents and community. They have applied for registration as a non-profit organisation.
