Home Away From Home is a proudly South African initiative aimed at supporting President Cyril Ramaphosa's initiative to flatten the COVID19 curve. South Africa has over 3500 stranded South Africans globally that want to be back in South Africa but have fallen out due to lock down. They face uncertain futures, and are running out of medication, funds and shelter. Without pointing fingers, HAFH have created a positive project aimed at working with government, DIRCO and charter companies to help bring back South Africans and where possible ensure their safety and comfort abroad. This is done through various social platforms run by volunteers across the globe.

All funds raised through this campaign will be under the custodianship of the Pupkewitz Foundation to support transparency in Home Away From Home’s implementation of charter flights. The Pupkewitz Foundation is the Social Investment Programme of the Pupkewitz Group of Companies in Namibia and has been in operation on a formal basis since 2002. The Pupkewitz Foundation is a registered welfare organisation that subscribes to the highest levels of governance in carrying out its operations. 

HAFH liaises directly with Dirco and the chartered flights will be arranged in accordance with laws of the SA government on repatriation and charter flights. HAFH will not have any direct dealings with any of the finances or with seat allocations we are merely marketing and facilitating the logistics of certain aspects of the flight.

  1. Bring Them Home

    This weekend's cause is to get a father repatriated from Mauritius to reunite him with his young daughter and wife after the sad loss of their son due to an acute illness. The mother is currently in ICU and the daughter with a relative. Through this flight we will also be able to repatriate other families that have not been able to go home for weeks. We will also be able to fly much needed medicines to Mauritius. The overall flight cost comes to a total of US$80 000.

    All funds raised will go directly to the charter company.
