The Open Door Crisis Care Centre is a non-profit, interdenominational outreach organisation established in 1997 at the request of the local South African Police Services. The Centre’s services reach from Durban and throughout the Highway District and as far as Port Shepstone and Richards Bay. Our aim is to sustain a holistic, multifaceted one stop crisis and trauma centre offering counselling, social services and support groups
The Monkey Helpline, started in 1995, is a volunteer group, based in Westville near Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, but operating throughout the province and also anywhere else in South Africa and abroad where our assistance and advice are requested. Our team of dedicated rescuers and rescue assistants, veterinarians, educators, monitors, fund-raisers, administrative assistants and supporters is what makes this project the success that it is today. We devote our time to educating people about the reasons why the monkeys are here, why monkeys behave the way they do, the things people should do or not do when monkeys are around, and how to humanely keep monkeys away from those places where they are not welcome. Just knowing that monkeys will NOT attack and bite people.
The Kwazulu-Natal Society for the Blind (KZN - SB) was established in 1919 and has evolved into a dynamic organization offering multi-disciplinary approach to access to human rights related services for blind and partial sighted people of KwaZulu-Natal Province.
