HIRSCH’S Hillcrest branch accompanied by the KZN Factory Shop recently visited Ikhethelo Children’s village in The Valley of a Thousand Hills to give the children an Easter hunt.

Hirsch’s PRO, Taryn Taylor said the day was a huge success, “The children made a beautiful card saying thank you for making Easter special for them.”

Hirsch’s and KZN factory shop also teamed up to provide the village with detergents and a gift voucher.

“As we raise vulnerable children to wholeness, we unlock their potential. They are put in a loving family environment where they realise that they can be anything they want to be,” said, Associate Development Director, Ruth Mthembu.

The Ikhethelo Children’s Village is not a stereotypical orphanage but instead tries to create a healthy home environment within each cottage/family, which itself is part of a vibrant, safe village community.

Each family unit consists of a housemother caring for a group of eight children, as in a natural family. The house parents are the foundation on which each family is built. They are drawn from the same cultural group as the children and are a mother to them, not just an employee – they love and care for the children as if they were their own.

If you would like to donate to Ikhethelo children’s village, please contact Ruth Mthembu on 079 137 8310 or Please see Ikhethelo Children’s Village websitewww.ikhethelo.org for more information.
