Dis-Chem Foundation's R35 000 donation uplifts Anecebo Children's Home bathroom

It all started in 2007 when Nomhle Joba started working hand in hand with social workers and police in cases where children were involved in issues like shoplifting and needed help.

In most cases, investigations would reveal the living conditions of both the parent and the child and be concluded as unfit to raise a child in and therefore prolonging the child stay.

Nomhle started off with three kids and now has thirteen.

Anecebo Children's Home is now a registered NPO and home to orphaned, abused, neglected and abandoned children.

I take them in. Some of them were babies. They were dumped. They were locked in homes by parents, some parents passed on - and I step in.

She says there are usually no relatives to help.

Foster grants are limited to no more than thirteen children and Nomhle says they need food, clothing, uniforms, hospital visits and taking them on outings.

Dis-Chem Foundation project manager Penny Stein says the foundation understand the challenges the home faces.

One of our greatest concerns is the hygiene of the children and I believe thirteen or fourteen of you share one very small little bathroom in the house and I know that is of great concern to you.

Penny Stein, Dis-Chem Foundation project manager

The Dis-Chem Foundation would like to assist you with R35 000 to renovate or rebuild or add-on another hygiene facility.

Nomhle expressed her joy at the generous donation.

Thank you so much to CapeTalk and the sponsors.
