Hygiene treat for street children

2015-04-30 15:14

In a project to help provide personal hygiene to street children, Operation Child Clean-up will be held on Saturday with the aim to provide up to 30 children with a hot shower, clean clothes and lunch.

The project is initiated by Ubuntu Community Development Solutions (UCDS) a non-profit organisation with the aim of uniting and growing communities by sowing seeds of human kindness.

“We would like to spoil these children as some of them might never get an opportunity like this,” said Angelique Nell from UCDS.

“We have requested donations in the form of toiletries, second hand clothes, towels and the assistance of volunteers as well as volunteer nurses and doctors to be part of the project.”

The project is hosted at the Uitenhage Central Sports complex and will not be open to the public.

“Although only the children and volunteers will be allowed on the premises, we want to thank the public for their support and donations towards the project,” said Nell.

It is being held in conjunction with the Uitenhage police, Uitenhage CPF, Nelson Mandela Bay Department of Sports and Recreation, Mureedah Botha from the POPS Foundation, Pick n Pay Penford and Despatch Superspar. Persons wishing to contribute towards the project may contact Angelique Nell on 073 982 2628 or ucdsolutions@gmail.com
