 Wings of Mercy

"THE POINT OF OUR AGGRESSION IS TO PROTECT THE INNOCENTS"

The nominal fee for this game is to control entries on Quicket and provide each participant an appreciation "Wings of Mercy" Patch.

The actual entry fee for the day is R100 (or more) worth of canned food and non-perishables with till slip proof provided. So total cost of the game towards a good cause is R150.

Without this "Emergency Relief" package, cash entry on the day will be R200.

All aid packages will be donated to: Africa Food for Thought

Africa Food for Thought is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers, which is essentially focused on equipping and supplying school feeding programmes. We are also involved in a number of community projects, self-help/empowerment projects and shelters and half-way houses. Our aim is to help those who need it the most: the vulnerable and marginalized.  Our vision is “to feed people in the name of Christ, in order to bring hope to the hopeless”

AFFT feeds nearly 16 000 children on most school days. We support 13 schools (mostly primary schools), 14 creches and over 140 orphaned and vulnerable children (OVCs), all mainly on the West Rand and in Soweto in Johannesburg.

This collectors item military velcro patch is an appreciation from those you helped and acknowledgement that you gave back to the less fortunate just in time for Christmas. 

Death Rags are compulsory. (available for sale on the day for convenience @R20) 
Barrel Socks and Radio communications are optional but highly recommended.
