Read Badisa’s 2023 Annual Report

“I have experienced, in a short period of time, how the values that attracted me to Badisa are being lived out in practice. Badisa is indeed an organisation that provides services to ALL in need, irrespective of their age, gender, race or religion. In that sense, Badisa is an organisation of HOPE. I have already experienced so many stories of hope in a world that is often portrayed as hopeless. My deepest gratitude goes to all our stakeholders for the critical role that they play in the overall success of Badisa.”

Mr Basie van Wyk, Badisa Chief Executive Officer

The purpose of Badisa is to implement and sustain programmes in the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape that provide social services and residential care to vulnerable people. We do this in collaboration with communities, churches, other organisations, government, and funders.
