The LFC is a non-profit organization which has been involved in the care and training of the intellectually and physically challenged since 1959. However, increasing operational costs has put a strain on financial resources in recent years and the LFC is therefore truly grateful for the support from the Business Sector and the General Public to keep the Centre functioning.
The Annual LAKE FARM FUN RUN was held on 11 March 2017 with an MTB event on the 12th. Lake Farm Center is a home for 90 intellectually disabled adults who live in 7 hostels. Most of the residents work in 10 different work groups or workshops and contribute to the upkeep and running of the centre. The village started in 1959, opened in 1960 and celebrated it’s 50th anniversary in 2010. Set in the rural Kragga Kamma area, 15 km from Port Elizabeth , Lake Farm Centre offers a tranquil and picturesque environment that provides a permanent home for 90 mentally challenged adults. Living and working together in harmonious co-operation, where the more able help the weak, every resident is a valued member of the group, enriching the community with their capacity for tolerance, support and love.
