ABOUT THE PURPLE MAP
The Turffontein refuge camp in Johannesburg is in desperate need of sanitary facilities, water, and feeding programmes to improve living conditions of the displaced people living there. There are hundreds of people living in the shelter, ranging from 6 month-old babies to elderly people.
We want to help bring a greater sense of dignity to this group of people in a dire time of need. Every action, every donation is helpful.
Powered by JSE-listed company, Purple Group, and in collaboration with the LaRochelle branch of Society of St Vincent de Paul (SSVP), the project is a spearheaded by members of both organisations and has been active since 2019.
We have managed to raise just over R50 000 since inception. All of which has been possible through the collective efforts and donations of Purple Group staff, members of SSVP, and our small yet strong community.
