Dorcas Angel Grant

The Dorcas Angel grant is a bereavement fund created to help a parent who has lost everything. A parent who has lost their child; their source of income and their hope. This grant was born out of the need to support these parents to get back on their feet so as to be able to take care of present needs.

Every year, one parent would be selected amongst others to be a recipient for the grant. All funds raised from this, would be given to the selected parent. This grant cannot bring back their child; we know this. But we hope it can shine a little light in the bleak darkness
