What is your dream for the future?
Like many South Africans, you probably dream of a better future for our country. An end to load shedding, a stable economy, an environment where there are more jobs and less crime … let’s face it, there’s a long list!
It was Nelson Mandela who said “Children are the most important asset in a country. For them to become that asset, they must receive education and love from parents.”
My dream, is that the Durban & Child Youth Care Centre stands strong and firm – regardless of what the country’s future holds – providing loving care for our neglected, abused and abandoned children for decades to come.
If your heart shares this dream, please consider using your Will to safeguard the future of our Home. It’s been around since 1905 and has served countless children in need over the past century. We know there will always be children who need our help.
Including the Durban Child & Youth Care Centre in your Will helps us realise our dream.
You may not know that it’s National Wills Week from 11-15 September. And you can get your Will drawn up free of charge by a qualified attorney. Knowing your affairs are in order brings peace of mind. But more than that, Wills Week offers you the chance to ask a professional how best to make provision for the Durban Child & Youth Care Centre.
Whether it’s a specific sum of money or item of value, you’ll make a profound difference in the lives of tomorrow’s children. Your legacy of hope and positive change will endure for generations to come.
If you decide to make this generous gesture, please let us know. We would be deeply grateful for the opportunity to express our thanks and discuss how you envision your contribution being used.
We may not be able to change the state of our country, but we can ensure its children are well cared for. This could be your legacy.
By including The Durban Child & Youth Care Centre in your Will – you safeguard the future of our children
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.
