Terence & Jimmy, now fondly known as the Rainbow Warriors took it upon themselves to walk from Amanzimtoti to Cape Town, raising funds to support pre-selected charities that are totally reliant on their community, as they are without any form of governmental funding.
The RAINBOW WARRIORS embarked on its “pay it forward” journey on the 2nd January 2013 whereby their aim was to raise funds, deliver food and equipment critical to the survival of organizations such as ours, Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre. The journey saw the RAINBOW WALKERS walking from Amanzimtoti in Kwazulu Natal to Cape Town in the Western Cape. They travelled through Southern Kwazulu Natal, the Wild Coast, Eastern Cape, Sunshine Coast, Garden Route, Overberg and Western Cape covering a total of
1631km’s of coastline.
- Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Centers including Wildlife Protection and Conservation, Awareness and Anti-Poaching 80%
- Orphans, the Elderly and Women and Child Abuse (Food Parcels, Blankets, Clothing and Safe Housing) 10%
- “Special Cases” (Funding for Individuals who are suffering with terminal or life threatening illnesses) 10%
RAINBOW WARRIORS South Africa actively supports all the extraordinary people who contribute to the protection, rescue, rehabilitation and conservation of our animals and wildlife as well as those who do humanitarian work with our elderly and children. Their mission is to educate our children in communities through a series of Animal Care and Welfare programs using our ADOPT-A-SCHOLAR initiative which includes assistance to participating Animal Rescue Centers and Sanctuaries in close proximity to the communities. The Animal Awareness campaigns see the team manning POP (Point of Presence) centers, at shows, festivals, flea markets, and shopping centers whereby they highlight animal abuse and neglect and create awareness for animals in need.
Uitsig Animal Rescue Centre welcomed Terence upon his arrival in the Western Cape by hosting a wonderful HIGH TEA at the historic Zomerlust Guest House, Paarl on Thursday 21st March, 2013.
