Three Rotary Clubs partnered and focused on helping a home for people with mental health issues who struggle and find it difficult to work or function in society.

Kerith Retreat is a 60-bed facility for psychiatric patients. They are situated outside Stellenbosch on a farm and provide rehabilitation services to the very vulnerable and destitute.

Paarl Rotary Club, The Rotary Club of Bellville and The Rotary Club of Strand joined hands and combined funds to make a difference.

The Paarl and Strand clubs undertook to fund building renovations and Bellville club offered to provide equipment.

A successful District Grant application and funds from the Cape Town Cycle Tour made it possible to donate two Industrial washing machines and tumble driers.

Laundry days will never be the same at Kerith Retreat.
