Our sickroom project was initiated with a fundraising drive during 2016 and as a result we received two sources of income (i) R26 000 from our Dutch volunteer Malou Loohuis who was successful with a crowdfunding drive and (ii) a donation from Afrisun of R148 000, resulting in a total of R174 000. This will be used for the purpose of purchasing medical equipment.

Linked to this medical room is also the creation of a small 4-bed frail care facility. The sickroom equipment is seen as supportive of a start towards realising our frail care facility. A suitable room has been identified in the main house which will be used for the sickroom which will provide the residents with a medically equipped facility for sick residents and those that need "quiet time" to recuperate from illness. We are currently assessing our equipment needs and will soon be in a position to obtain suitable suppliers for the equipment.
