I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Christmas and a 2021 full of good things. I  also want to thank you for your continued support of the GoGo Trust. This year has been full of much uncertainty and challenge. People living in Port Elizabeth have been significantly affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Lock down for our families living in Kwazakhele Township has been a challenge, but everyone one is  thankfully well and grateful.  Our Soup Cells have been functioning with all Covid compliant measures and Aver-davits in place We have authorisation from the local authorities to remain open during the pandemic. Our soup cells have served over 7000 meals a month and remain valuable places of hope within Kwazakhlele and surrounding township communities. We have just delivered our bags of blessing to 50 families for Christmas. This year on the 2nd Dec we  had a successful Julian’s Children Quiz night.  It was fun and fast moving, with lots of new things learn’t.  I spoke to Mtutuzelli yesterday he is strong in heart and encouraged and also requested I pass on his Christmas Greetings. 
Wishing you a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year

God Bless Take Care and Remain Hopeful,


This is Lisikhanya Magamba he is supported by Julian’s Children and  is the grandson of Mama Magamba.  He stays with his granny because his parents died.  Lisikhanya is 10 years old and doing grade 4 at JK Zondi Primary School.  There have been no sports activities at school this year due to Covid 19.  However, he plays soccer at school when the sports activities activities are opened. Lisikhanya wants to become a  policeman in the future because he wants to fight crime in the country. He is inspired by several family members who are already involved in law enforcement.  He loves watching TV when at home and playing with friends.  His granny confirmed that he is helpful at home, he helps cleaning the yard and goes to the shops for his granny when necessary. His granny says he is a happy and helpful boy.

Portia Mbengo is  also supported by Julian’s Children and is the granddaughter of Ester Mbengo. Portia is 19 years old and is completing her final year at Kwazakhele High School.  Her favorite subject is Life Sciences, Xhosa and Life Orientation.  She loves Life Sciences because of the focus on nature.  She wants to become a social worker in the future because she wants to help the many South African children who need love and care.  She wants to do more research on poverty and bring solutions to the problem.  She has compassion for children who never had a chance to be loved and taken care of by their parents.
She is studying for grade 12, and has started writing exams which is stressful, particularly this year with Covid restrictions, when the students had to miss so much school due to quarantining. She has studied hard whilst at home, she trusts and hopes that God will make a way as she has done all she can to pass her exams.
Portia lives in a loving home which is full of care. She loves her grandmother Mama Ester very much.  Portia is challenged with her health as she had a spinal cord operation some time ago.   She pushes very hard to get to good results at school so that she can be accepted at the local university.

The family have income from Mama Esther’s old age pension, which is approx £100 a month. Portia is grateful to be supported by Julian’s children as she isn’t hungry anymore and her Grandmother isn’t as stressed. 

Mama Iris, says that  2020 has been challenging but she is grateful to have been supported throughout the year by Julian’s children. Mama Iris is pleased her grandchildren have been able to complete their school year and they are all looking forward to the Christmas Holidays.
