KINGSBURGH Child and Family Welfare Society warmed the hearts of teachers and toddlers at Sizani Crèche in Wanda Cele Road on 18 July, when they donated jerseys, jackets and clothes for Mandela Day.

They are solely dependent on public donations.
“This is such a blessing to our crèche. We have 42 children and many of them come to school without warm clothes. They simply do not have the luxury of clothes, as a result the children are often sick. We are now looking forward to a much warmer winter,” said teacher, Nombulelo Maphumulo.

The faces of the one to four year olds lit up as they admired their new clothes, and one of the youngest children quickly reached out for a pink, knitted jersey which fitted as if tailor-made.

The toddlers had prepared a song and as their sweet notes filled the air, the magic of Mandela Day struck me - it is the givers that get the greater reward.

Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare celebrated their 70th birthday recently and support many impoverished families through your donations of money, goods-in-kind and clothes.
The items are sold at a low cost to encourage entrepreneurship.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
