Steve van Heerden, founder of the omdatTRUST, registered the trust on 03 February 2010. He created the omdatTRUST, because he wanted to give something back to the underprivileged, and because he believed that it’s better to give than to receive. It was especially children with disabilities and also needy animals that caught his attention.
Sadly in 2011, Steve’s short and promising life came to an unexpected end, after he became a less fortunate victim of an armed robbery incident while at his home.
Nevertheless, with the encouragement and support of family and friends, it was decided to continue with the omdatTRUST. The motivation was to complete Steve’s unfulfilled motion of generosity.
Steve leaves a legacy and is an example to us all, because he had a heart of gold, because… this is who Steve was.
