2017 Membership 

PAYMENTS: If you would like to make your 2017 Membership payment, or make a donation, you can view our banking details >>HERE<<

NEW MEMBERS:   Welcome! You do not have to contribute to help support our pensioners in need, or to the running cost of the organisation for the first calendar year (or part thereof). The Orange Tail Association will pay your membership for you. This will give you an opportunity to evaluate the Association. We obviously have expenses such as Office Admin Staff, Website hosting and development, Internet, Telephone, SMS, Stationery, Postage, flowers at funerals etc to pay, so any assistance from your side will be very welcome.

CARING FOR OUR PENSIONERS:  Our biggest expense is caring for our needy pensioners. You may know that for many years they have only been getting a 2% increase in pension. This actually means that compared to the 9% inflation in Food & Medical, they are each year getting 7% less than the previous year.
We feed around 30 pensioners at any given time. We provide medication, transport to hospitals, clothing, etc. to many. Over the past 2 years we bought 31 gas heaters to provide warmth during winter to ex SAA pensioners, some who live in outbuildings and even in shacks. This winter we have to fill the gasbottles again. This year we had to buy 2 power generators for pensioners dependant on oxygen machines, to keep them alive during loadshedding. All these expenses have completely drained our cash reserves.

AFFORDABILITY:     As always we will never ever deny anybody access to the Orange Tail website. If you can not afford the R10 per month membership, please pay a nominal amount – even R1 or R2 per month. We will pay the balance for you. Many thanks to those who monthly contribute to our Pensioners Support Fund – they get free membership. Let’s all work together unselfishly to keep the Orange Tail association alive.
