SOS! We are half way! PEN Sea Camp needs your help urgently!

We are already nearing the end of November and it’s a busy month here at PEN, getting everything ready for the annual PEN Sea camp. Like before, PEN will once again give 110 children a chance to free themselves from their sometimes hurtful circumstances and to be a “child” for 10 days. To some this will be the first time they will put their feet in the sand. Sea camp is not just a holiday at the beach, but to some this will be an opportunity to put ointment on their emotional wound and to get “better” again.

However, we are only half way to getting enough donations in to make Sea Camp 2017 a reality and we need your help. Unfortunately, our children’s wellness comes with a price tag and we need every rand and cent. It costs us nearly R1100 per child, a small amount to give them the necessary attention, counselling, support and freedom to every child. We need help with treats, towels, toiletries and sunscreen. Every donation we receive, takes us a few kilometres further to the coast and further along their journey of freedom. Your heart and hands can change a child’s life this December. For more information and to get involved with Sea Camp 2017, contact Janthinus Schrage at or 0123236688. To sponsor a child’s “bettership”, you can make a donation to the following account:
