The Refilwe project logo.

Refilwe (Sotho: We are given) is a township near the historical town of Cullinan, east of Pretoria in Gauteng Province, South Africa. It was established in 1991 when Jean Stewart and Yvonne Jaques started primary health treatment in the corner of a small hall in the Drummond settlement, Lanseria.

The church of St. Michael and All Angels in Newton, West Kirby, Wirral, England has an extensive link with the project and regularly sends parishioners to help with the project.
