A newly established organisation which provides free legal services to destitute residents in Khayelitsha is inviting residents to make use of its services.ProBono.Org acts as a legal clearing-house and aims to provide legal assistance to indigent and marginalised persons through the private legal profession.They opened their new office at Isivivana Hall opposite the Khayelitsha Magistrates Court last month. Uzair Adams, Attorney and Regional Manager for ProBono.Org, said they assist residents with legal issues such as deceased estates, family law related matters, consumer law related matters, including housing matters.“We would like residents to know about us and utilise our services. We want social justice to be accessible. If we cannot assist a person due to the nature of his or her issue, we refer that person to the right people. We want to bridge the gap that exists in getting legal assistance. We also do workshops where we shed light about legal matters. At times you find that a person would think that he or she has a case, but then you find that there is no case at all,” Adams said.Adams said residents who wish to utilise their services are subject to means test where they check if the person earns a minimum salary.He said they are recognised by the Cape Law Society.ProBono.Org was established in Johannesburg in 2006.They also have offices in Pretoria and Durban. Adams also said their services are open to anyone coming from anywhere in the province.
