Is Level Ground merely a charity? We are all about restitution but what makes us unique in South Africa?
He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.
- We are not simply a charity – we are motivated by a need to provide restitution for the wrongs of the past and to help others do so.
- We are also motivated by our love for people which is made possible by a relationship with Jesus Christ. God’s very heart is for the poor and oppressed and we, being Christ’s body (the Church) desire to express the love of God to others.
- We are not a hand-out association; we don’t simply give people houses. We build relationships and equip people to live a better life.
- Although some may rent, we encourage ownership and responsible financial management
- We also help those that require legal assistance towards owning their own house.
- We (being the committee) are all trying to “practice what we preach”.
One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
