Be the hero in a child's life – without breaking the bank
When you make a donation to the Durban Child & Youth Care Centre, you get a Section 18A Certificate that entitles you to claim a rebate on your tax. Which means you can make a big difference in a child’s life … and save money on your tax at the same time.
But hurry – you only have until the end of February to make your donation and claim money back from the tax man this year.
Your support right now will make such a difference! We took in 18 new children at the beginning of the year … seven of whom have just started school for the very first time. These little ones are frightened, unsure of what to expect. Some have never slept in their own bed before! Most of them are used to the gnawing ache of hunger.
Your contribution – made online now will help turn their lives around.
Gifts of R500, R250 and even R100 provide food, clothing, school fees and school stationery. Please be as generous as you can … then use your certificate to claim your reward from the tax man.
We have seven little ones starting Grade 1 this year – which means all the usual ‘back to school’ expenses x 7!
Your donation helps start them on the road to lifelong learning – please be part of their journey.
children deserve to be safe & happy
In a perfect world, every child would grow up in a loving home – with enough food, clothing and opportunities to play and learn.
But it’s not a perfect world.
The Durban Child & Youth Care Centre strives to give children who’ve been orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused, another chance of a happy childhood. We provide a safe home, all the daily necessities, education and encouragement to help them develop into healthy, well-adjusted kids.
Wherever possible, we work with the family to enable children to return home. Because every child needs a place to belong.
