Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update

A message from our CEO, Naren Pattundeen

Thank you for being a wonderful supporter and for keeping the ABH in your thoughts and prayers. The Covid-19 virus (otherwise known as Coronavirus) marks an unprecedented time that will require us to help each other. Your ongoing support has helped our 99-year-old national charity provide succour to the aged, frail, physically and mentally challenged, abused women and children. This is an uncertain time for everyone and we are reaching out to our supporters because the vast majority of our sustainable income sources are rapidly depleting. We’re asking for donations but we also need contacts, ideas and advice from our ABH family.

The virus has added a financial burden on us as we have to acquire hand sanitisers, disinfectant spray bottles, masks and gloves. We appreciate your support in helping our staff reduce the impact of this virus to our 700 residents.Please note that the ABH is a registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) therefore donations are tax deductible. We issue Section 18A Certificates for donations for submission with your tax return.
