Our buildings are over 116 years old. Which means that they require considerable maintenance and, in some cases, renovation. We need them to provide a safe and secure environment for the children in our care. But, when you are operating on a limited budget, meeting the day to day basic living needs of the children has to take priority.
We are currently facing a shortfall of R 4,9 million on our operating budget for the year, which is why we are so grateful for all and any donations. In particular, we wish to thank Des-ign Group for their kind and generous donation to attend to critical flooring repairs at Khayelisha House.
The flooring was in a bad state and when the contractors started pulling off the old carpets, we were able to see just how bad! Extensive repairs and renovations were needed and Des-ign Group generously undertook the repairs, and prepare the floors for a vinyl finish which will be completed by the end of October.
Thank you for helping in this practical way.
