Centre help with unplanned pregnacies

2015-12-17 06:00

New Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre this year has ministered to 1 130 clients, primarily regarding unplanned pregnancies, also referred to as crisis pregnancies.

For the past 17 years New Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre has been serving the communities of Despatch and Uitenhage through its parenting support group offering guidance regarding healthy parenting skills and ante-natal classes.

“We have experienced many highs and lows with our moms, including tears and laughter,” said Jean Downey, Director: New Life Crisis Pregnancy Centre, which is situated in Caledon Street, Uitenhage.

The centre depends on fundraising projects and recently held a Hamper Fundraiser. The content was donated and an amount of R3 110 was raised.

The winners of the hampers are Kiahna Campbell (meat hamper) with Billy Nell and Mignon Stokes each winning a treat hamper.

“We pray that Christmas season will be a time of peace and joy in your homes and in our community,” said Downey.

The centre closed for the year and re-opens on Tuesday, January 12th at 09:00. It is situated in Caledon Street, next to the Caledon Street Congregational Church.
