What We Do
The Healing Heart Foundation model is inspired by both the frailty and resilience of humanity. The founder of the organisation recognises that many individuals in marginalized communities are victims of poor emotional health due to the ignorance of acknowledgement and lack of affordable resources to address this issue. The model was designed to bring awareness and a learning tool and provide services that are otherwise too costly for these individuals to access. To focus on the emotional healing, nurturing accountability and identity of self, encouraging an outcome of a resilient individual who will positively contribute to themselves, immediate families and their communities.
The model introduced by The Healing Heart Foundation is designed to support individuals from Vrygrond, Lavender Hill, Seawinds and Steenberg:
1) Who have been exposed to trauma, crisis, violence, deprivation due to poverty in their marginalized communities
2) Who are at risk of being lured into or dying out because of criminal activities and emotional starvation and instability due to their vulnerability given their local context.
