LifeChild – Project Care
Food Delivery and Covid-19 training
During a weekend in March, we visited four of our orphan centres in rural KZN. We delivered food parcels, clothing, and personal protective equipment like masks, sanitizers, and posters. Our team trained and informed our caregivers and children on how to stay safe during the Covid-19 pandemic and how the virus spreads. We taught them how important it is to wash hands regularly if someone showed possible symptoms of being sick with Covid-19 they were given the contact details of the person who would guide them on what to do next.
Our garden project at Emthaleni is doing well, especially our mealies and fruit trees. We also had our entrance gate replaced with a stronger frame and material. Burglar guards were put up on the windows of the centre and our next goal is to get a new fence up around the property which has been graciously sponsored by Tear Fund.
Currently, our Table Mountain centre only feeds the children and our long term goal is to turn the centre into a stay in the centre for the children. Recently we put up a ceiling and we were able to tile the floors. Another important goal was to put up security gates, we are grateful to have been able to accomplish that.
