Telkom Foundation came to visit Christine Revell Children’s Home and not only supplied us with needed items but also came to our Children’s Home to physically assist us with jobs to do around the home. Even some of the top management team members came out to help on this day!
The much needed goods were garden tools, cleaning materials, equipment replacements eg vacuum machines, a lawnmower and replacing some or our worn baby goods.
“It was very heart warming and we enjoyed our time with the children.”- Samantha
The staff were involved in Spring cleaning the premises: washing windows and washing the vehicles, gardening, cleaning out the veggie garden. Most of the ladies also enjoyed spending time with the children.
“We were very tired at the end of the day. Some of these children are a hand full.” one Telkom employee remarked.
We appreciate all the help we can get. Thank you Telkom Foundation for spending the day with us and for making our children feel special – for spring cleaning and for choosing us as a beneficiary – the donations also included a laptop and tablet seen here handed over by Sekgabi / Samantha of Telkom Foundation.
We would like to encourage volunteers to be of assistance on an ongoing basis wrt:
- Swimming transport for children on Mondays from 9h00 – 11h30 from CRCH to Old Mutual swimming pool
- Twice a week tend to the veggie garden and harvest vegetables for our kitchen
- Bakkie facility / trailer use – free of charge to collect donations on an ad hoc basis
