Friends. Where would we be without them?

From the beginning, CBN has been rich in friends and fellowship. Whenever we have needed something - from maps to T-shirts, somebody has known somebody who has a contact who knows somebody else ... Our  Network has spread further than we could ever have dreamed, with support from Ireland, Sweden and America and England (so far). We need to build more local support, in the places where we work, and in South Africa. 

 If you are interested in helping CBN grow and achieve more for the children of the Overstrand, please contact us.

Thank you to all of you who have befriended CBN. It is appreciated. Spread the word. Subscribe to our newsletter. (Use our Donate button as often as you feel like doing!)
