On Saturday 25 July the Nashua Children’s Charity Foundation visited assisted charities in Tembisa, Ivory Park and Diepsloot.
Ubuhle Bezwe Orphanage is bursting at the seams with 48 children and two babies in the care of house mother Barbra. The children are all doing well at school again this year.
Thuthukani Community Centre cares for 347 children with 95 in day care, and a further 252 who arrive for after care. The children are assisted with schoolwork and given a meal – often their only meal for the day.
Daycare Pre-School Group consists of 16 centres in Ivory Park, all of which receive NCCF assistance through their administrator Frans Leso. Frans first escorted us to Christine’s ECD. Thanks to a donation from the old Nashua Kopano kitchen, Frans will be collecting a countertop stove, oven and extractor for the centre. At Tshimologo ECD the NCCF building contractor has completed the building of two toilets. The principal at Isolezwe ECD thanked the NCCF for their regular grocery and educational supplies.
Thusong Children’s Home is still recovering from the sudden death of their founder and house mother, but Palesa Modikoe has assured the NCCF that the children will be well cared for.
Bambi Care’s principal Maureen, wishes the large play area could be astro-turfed for the comfort and safety of the 30 children in her care.
Deflire Orphanage showed off the completed renovations she had raised funds for, but the two bedrooms and baby room are still overcrowded, with no space for expansion.
We once again thank Uber for supporting the NCCF with transport
