Hangklip Community Care Centre / Gemeenskapsorgsentrum

Reg No. 102-000-NPO

Membership is open to all residents of the Hangklip area, i.e., Betty’s Bay (including Mooiuitsig), Pringle Bay and Rooi Els. Your HCCC membership fee, which is payable annually, contributes to supporting needy people within the Hangklip community and also enables you to purchase cooked meals at subsidised rates. This membership fee is currently R60.00. If, however, your monthly household income does not exceed R3 000, the annual fee reduces to R30.00. The normal cost per meal for a HCCC member is currently R40.00 (non-members pay R50.00). A member who is part of a low-income household (R9 000/m or less) could, however, purchase the same meal at a reduced cost ranging between R10.00 and R35.00, depending on income.

Lidmaatskap is oop vir alle inwoners van die Hangklip-gebied, naamlik Bettysbaai (insluitend Mooiuitsig), Pringlebaai en Rooiels. U jaarlikse lidmaatskapsfooi dra by tot die ondersteuning van behoeftiges binne die Hangklip- gemeenskap en stel u ook in staat om gekookte etes teen gesubsideerde pryse te bekom. Die huidige lidmaatskapsfooi is R60.00. As u gesins-inkomste egter nie R3 000 oorskry nie, word hierdie fooi na R30.00 verminder. Die normale prys wat ‘n HGSS lid vir ‘n ete betaal is huidiglik R40.00 (nie-lede betaal R50.00).’n Lid wie egter deel is van lae-inkomste gesin (R9 000 of minder) kan dieselfde bord kos koop teen ‘n verlaagde prys wat wissel tussen R10.00 en R35.00, afhanklik van gesinsinkomste.

I would like to thank those members who so generously donated towards supplying food stuffs for residents who were adversely financially affected by Covid-19 and the subsequent "lock down". This was greatly appreciated by the recipients.

We have now reached the stage with many returning to work and able to fend for themselves which in turn means that nutrition assistance has only become necessary in a few cases. Taking this into account the BBRA is closing down their involvement and is handing over the few cases left to a local charitable organisation, Hangklip Community Care Centre, HCCC.

This independent organisation has been operational in the Hangklip area since 2014 and supplies subsidised meals, free food parcels to the needy, runs a chronic medication clinic and various social and recreational facilities. HCCC is a registered NPO with registration number 102-000-NPO and is also registered with SARS for the issue of form 18a certificates allowing donors who wish to receive certificates for tax deduction purposes.

Should you wish any other information on HCCC their information can be accessed on this web site here.

In the light of the above we intend to donate the balance of donors funds held to HCCC to subsidise their charitable work in attending to the nutrition of the needy in our area provided our donors are in favour of this action.

Additionally should any member wish to donate towards the initiatives of HCCC they can deposit to the bank account as follows:

Should you wish to discuss any of these arrangements you can contact me.

Thanks and Be Safe

Hangklip Community Care Centre (HCCC) is a fully independent, registered NPO, operating from premises leased from and shared with the Lakeside Chapel, corner of Wheeler and White Roads, Betty’s Bay. Our vision is to promote a closely-knit Hangklip community (residents of Betty’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Rooi Els) in which there is mutual caring for one another, and in which problems of inadequate nutrition, loneliness, infirmity, neglect, etc., are effectively addressed. We facilitate a range of services to the community, assisted by a large team of dedicated, community-based volunteers. Such services include:

  • Nutritious and enjoyable meals provided at subsidised, affordable prices
  • Food parcels disseminated free of charge to residents who struggle to meet their basic nutritional needs
  • A clinic for dispensing chronic medication, also offering routine medical tests and access to medical/nursing aids on loan
  • Opportunities for group activities, recreation and social interaction.

These services, along with others more directly concerned with home-based care and support, underpin our HAIL (Home- based Assisted Independent Living) initiative – through which residents with diminished capacity to care for themselves, or inability to function with full independence, can be assisted to continue living in their own homes, within the community and surroundings they love, for as long as possible

Hangklip Gemeenskapsorg Sentrum (HGSS) is ‘n ten volle onafhanklike, geregistreerde nie-winsgewende organisasie. Ons werk vanuit fasiliteite wat ons by die Lakeside Chapel (h/v Wheeler- en Whitestraat, Bettysbaai) huur en met hulle deel. Ons visie is die bevordering van ‘n samehorige Hangklipgemeenskap (inwoners van Bettysbaai, Pringlebaai en Rooiels), waarin ‘n kultuur van omgee-vir-mekaar heers sodat probleme van onvoldoende voeding, eensaamheid, siekte, verwaarlosing, ensovoorts effektief aangespreek kan word. Ons fasiliteer, ‘n reeks dienste aan die gemeenskap, hoofsaaklik met behulp van vrywilligers Dit sluit in:

  • Voorsiening van voedsame en smaaklike etes teen gesubsideerde, bekostigbare pryse
  • Gratis verskaffing van kospakkies aan inwoners wat sukkel om in basiese voedingsbehoeftes te voorsien
  • ‘n Kliniekdiens vir die reseptering van chroniese medikasie, roetine mediese toetse en uitleen van basiese verpleegtoerusting
  • Geleenthede vir groeps-aktiwiteite, ontspanning en sosiale interaksie.

Hierdie dienste, tesame met ander wat meer direk betrekking het op tuis-versorging en -ondersteuning, is die onderbou vir ons HAIL (Home-based Assisted Independent Living) inisiatief, waardeur inwoners wat oor verminderde kapasiteit beskik om vir hulself te sorg, of ten minste onafhanklik te kan funsioneer, gehelp word om so lank moontlik in hulle eie wonings en binne die gemeenskap en omgewing waarvoor hulle lief is, te bly voortleef.
