Our mission at the ISSY GESHEN LAMONT HOME FOR THE AGED, which is based in Lamontville, Durban, is to provide care, comfort and security for our 69 residents who for varying reasons cannot live with family or alone and, as their only source of income is their government pension, cannot afford the more well-resourced/financed old aged homes. Due to insufficient public and private sector contributions we are struggling to keep our doors open. Your support will play a key role in fulfilling our mission.
The challenge we are facing right now is that the shortfall increases every year because the cost of living – certainly the items we spend money on – increases by a higher percentage than the amount by which the government increases pensions and subsidies. So it’s becoming ever more difficult, almost impossible now, to meet this shortfall. Can you help? Your kindness will give our old people security into the future. The alternative is unthinkable!
You can give safely and securely online, right now, simply click here. Your gift will reach us immediately. We’d be very grateful! If you’d prefer to make your donation by electronic funds transfer or direct deposit into our bank account, our bank account details appear below. Please be sure to use your phone number as the reference so that we can thank you for your kindness.

A Bequest is a gift detailed in a Will that is left to a nominated recipient following the passing of the person who made the Will.
Can I leave you a bequest in my Will?
We’d be delighted if you’d remember us in your will. Bequests are of enormous help when we need to make improvements to the Home or make a capital purchase as it’s virtually impossible to afford these items in our regular budget.
A bequest can be a specific sum of money or asset or you can leave part or all of what is left of your estate after all other bequests and taxes have been paid.
Your attorney or financial advisor can help you make the best decision.
The more common types of Bequests are as follows:
If you are contemplating assisting the Home through any of the abovementioned types of Bequests, we would suggest that you consult with your attorney or financial advisor/accountant prior to making any final decision in order to ensure that you receive the best possible advice regarding your Estate.
