Ekurhuleni drop in orphanage

Personal message

Cape to Kruger Tours and Safaris have supported Ekurhuleni Centre for Orphans in South Africa for the last 5 years. Please assist this cause.

 

Words from the founder of the orphanage Thalitha Mthethwa:

 

‘The Ekurhuleni Centre for Orphans and Vulnerable Children is situated at Acornhoek, one of the designated presidential “poverty nodes” in the country. The unemployment rate is estimated at 75%-80%.

 

The area is fraught with many socio-economic and health problems due to rise of informal settlements around the business area. This has given rise to many deaths caused by HIV and AIDS, TB and other related diseases. Many children became orphans and street kids who indulge in criminal activities such as theft, due to lack of food and care. 


The centre is presently taking care of 226 orphans and vulnerable children. There are plus or minus 300 on a waiting list who are now starving due to lack of food. The condition is worse now due to Lockdown.

 

We therefore request for basic food such as maize meal, sugar beans, powder milk, tea leaves, sugar, peanut butter etc. Your assistance in providing food will make a great difference to these children and community at large.

 

Thank you’

 

*The campaign creator has requested that a portion off the funds raised be paid out in the form of Shoprite vouchers. The remaining funds will be managed by the campaign creator*
