Hi - My name is Francois Klark - I am a South African born, Canadian singer-songwriter and producer.
During my childhood years in Potchefstroom, South Africa, I noticed that there were kids my age that did not have a family or even a home to go to. I knew it wasn't right and it weighed on me, but, as a kid myself, I felt helpless and unable to do anything.
Music has since become my medium of expression and so I recently wrote a song titled ‘For You’ to express what I felt back then. The song tells the story of, not only the children that live on the streets of my hometown but also of the displaced, enslaved, orphaned and marginalized children around the world. 'For You' is my desperate call on people like you to take action, to stand beside and to help protect our children - whatever it takes.
The song is now available everywhere and all sales and streaming revenue generated by ‘For You’ (feat. Katlego Maboe & Marla Walters) will be donated to the Abraham Kriel Children’s home (AKCH) in Potchefstroom, South Africa - an incredible organization who provides full time care to about 230 children, all of whom comes from unfathomable circumstances.
Will you join me, the beautiful musicians who helped make this song, and the tireless staff and volunteers at AKCH, in helping these children regain their sense of self-worth by donating to the 'For You' Children's Home Project?
ABOUT ABRAHAM KRIEL CHILDREN'S HOME POTCHEFSTROOM
"To simply say that the development of children is our passion is an understatement. At AKCH we strive to provide children with the best possible care in South Africa. Due to the dedication of our staff, we have seen children turn from unimaginable circumstances to regain their sense of self-worth. The resilience of our children never ceases to amaze and motivate us to reach out to even higher goals for the kids.
We provide specialized residential services to 230 children found in need of care by the children's court. Residential care means that the children are in our care full time and that we are responsible to meet all their physical, emotional, educational, social and medical needs...in other words the 'whole package' contributing to be a healthy and balanced human being."
You can support AKCH by simply:
1 - Making a donation right here.
2 - Listening to ‘For You’ on your preferred streaming platform.
3 - Purchasing a download of ‘For You’ from your preferred digital music store.
