Christianity in Action – community services with compassion

In Xhosa when we talk about compassion we say Mfesane.

We work within our communities, using our compassion to help build better lives for those in need. By building better lives, we create a community that is positive, healthy and strong.

We are an independent Christian development organisation and registered non-profit organisation in South Africa, working in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Cape West Coast areas.

With a team of over 300 we are striving towards eradicating poverty by empowering communities.

Our community services include ongoing projects to support Orphan and Vulnerable Children, Health Care, Youth Development, Church Mobilisation, as well as Literacy and Numeracy education.

Our strategy is to fight poverty through three main programme areas:


Serving South African Communities


Skilling the nation – technical vocational education and training


Supporting people and communities in South Africa
