Giving back to the vulnerable

Having experienced brokenness in his own life, Duncan Briggs (1983F) is able to help others in need.
A save haven for humans and animalss alike
A save haven for humans and animalss alike

Duncan Briggs sent us an update from a small farm in the Karoo where he and his wife, Rosemary have settled into a life of caring for animals and people who have been hurt or broken.  He sent us this message in which he invites ODs who are passing by to stop for a visit:

After many years of mistakes and experiences I find myself well prepared to assist and relate to broken people.

I have been blessed with an amazing wife who partners with me to care for others. We currently provide shelter to 147 animals and 18 humans.

Having completed my studies, we decided not just to take in animals but also to take in broken men from all walks of life.

 From pensioners off the street to those with addictions and in a kibbutz environment where we all live together as a family working together in the farm and with the animals. We grow in numbers as the need grows. We also take in mostly dogs never likely to find homes. The blind and old and sick. All live with is in a large pack.

We are completely off the grid and attempt to be as self sufficient as possible. We lease and run Impangele Mountain Lodge and make furniture and farm produce to fund what we do.

Any ODs passing Touwsriver area would be more than a blessing to have you visit.
