There are a multitude of welfare organisations in Alberton that are doing amazing work in our community with very little support, if any, from government organisations. To make matters worse, very few people know where to spend their welfare money wisely. We even hear reports of people opening their homes for vagrants to bath and have a meal. This is very generous but extremely dangerous! Rather invest your time and money in registered welfare and non-profit
