WELCOME TO HORIZON FARM TRUST

Learn more about us…

Horizon Farm is a residential special needs home for intellectually impaired / disabled adults in KwaZulu-Natal. The home was born out of a dream in 1994 by a group of parents of mentally and physically disabled dependents who set out to provide a home-away-from-home for their lifetime needs and respite care. Horizon consists of a happy and safe outdoor environment and caters for special needs adults with typical  challenges relating to Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and Williams.

Horizon Farm Trust

Mark Basson, former paramedic/firefighter from Durban will pushing his body to the limit for the benefit of Horizon Farm trust.

Mark, 38 years old, has been training to run the 21km SAMA (South African Medical Association) run & walk race on the 30th of June in Full fire gear.

Full fire gear, is extremely difficult to run in because it is not breathable. This stops the body from being able to effectively cool its self, resulting in the loss of large amounts of electrolytes through intense sweating. Heat exhaustion and dehydration is a big risk when running in this gear.

Mark has a passion for helping people and organizations in need. This initiative is close to his heart as one of his best friends, is responsible for the welfare of his son, who is a resident at Horizon Farm Trust.

“Caring of the lifelong needs of a dependent adult is a real challenge for all family members. I would like to dedicate my race to Dylan Hornby, and to Horizon Farm trust, and to make a meaningful contribution to the farm” says Basson.

All donations made to support Mark, will be used for the upgrade and extension of the high care facility at the farm, where they care for residents who need full time assistive care.

If you would like to support Mark in his efforts to raise funds for the farm please follow the links to do a donation- please use the reference FIRE and your surname. http://horizonfarmtrust.org.za/product/donation/

All donations made are section 18a deductible.

The main house is where most of our residents spend their time- the grass is a fun place to play games, and we all gather in the dining room for all our meals. It is also where we house our high care residents- which means that they are always part of action. ... See MoreSee Less

Horizon Farm Trust

At Horizon we grow and sell Vetiver grass, which is an effective and affordable solution to wash away retaining areas.
The recent rains in April proved the effectiveness of our Vetiver grass. With its fibrous root system it kept all the retaining banks on the farm safe from wash away.
The vetiver grass project is a commercial project for the farm, and we sell vetiver to supplement the farms income.
If you have any problem retaining areas that need an effective and affordable solution, please contact Joff on hftadmin@horizonfarmtrust.org.za
