Staff members and children at Lindokuhle Children’s Centre in Graceland, Khayelitsha, were exhilarated after receiving clothes, food parcels and books, courtesy of the Siluncedo organisation last Saturday.

The organisation, which is based in Nyanga, also refurbished the library and painted it.

The centre accommodates about 17 vulnerable children from Khayelitsha and surrounding areas.

Founder Bahle Ngqula said their focus is to assist disadvantaged families and orphanage homes.

“We visit families in need, orphanages, and assist where there are lonesome elders and clean their homes to cook for them. At the orphanages we spend time playing and reading children stories,” he said.

Siluncedo is a non-government organisation which survives on donations.

“We ask for clothing or books that people no longer has need for. We are doing this as a sign of showing the love we have for children,” he said.

Pamela Kulashe is the founder of Lindokuhle Children’s Centre. She said Siluncedo’s contribution was valuable.

Her centre was established three months ago and accommodates children up to the age of six.

“Our children have the chance to socialise and play with others. Seldom do they meet people. And I believe all the stuff they donated will make an impact to them, especially the books as we are trying to open a library for them,” said Kulashe.

She said the children were brought to them by social workers.

“These children are here for different reasons. Some of them are neglected by their parents, others come from abusive families, while others are orphaned ...

“But we struggle to support them as a centre because we are not getting funds or sponsors yet and only survive on hand-outs and child grants from government,” said Kulashe­.
