On Tuesday 20 September 2016, Johnson and Johnson Consumer colleagues, in collaboration with their Cape Town Care Team, took part in a Care Day at our home.

Volunteers helped out in a variety of ways on the day, which included admin duties, cleaning, a vegetable garden ‘makeover’ as well as playtime with the kids. A number of colleagues also contributed generously towards the home leading up to the event.

The Care Day was coordinated by Simone Mahlert-Stewart from Johnson and Johnson and thanked everyone involved for their support in making this day a success: “Life is busy and filled with daily demands, and one can easily overlook that it is the small things in life that can make a difference and bring joy,” mentioned Simone. “Our Care Day at Christine Revell Children’s Home enabled colleagues to make a difference in the life of others, and colleagues generously contributed towards the day.  Thank you, J&J colleagues, for your contributions and volunteering your time!”

In addition these were some comment from volunteers who participated on the day:

“It truly was a GREAT day! The memories will stay with me for a long time to come. I am now even more committed to doing what I can for those less fortunate.”

 “A BIG THANK YOU for arranging today’s volunteer opportunity.  What a great place – filled with people who do amazing work and more than 40 gorgeous babies and children.  Had a great time and was really uplifted by my interactions with the kids.”
