Dis-chem Foundation donates R180k to help NPO care for adults with disabilities
The Dis-Chem Foundation, in partnership with CapeTalk, has extended a helping hand to Cape Town NPO, Turfhall Cheshire Home.
Turfhall Cheshire Home, which is situated in Lansdowne, provides 24-hour residential care to more than 60 severely physically disabled adults.
But due to funding constraints, the organisation has a shortfall of R2500 per resident, per month.
Turfhall Cheshire Home's manager explains that, despite various operational and financial challenges, the charity group has been operating since 1984.

It's for this reason that the Dis-Chem Foundation is donating R180 000 to help the home cover its monthly expenses over the next year.
