Toys and Necessities Bring Smiles
We chose this Charity Organisation because we were inspired by the great work they are doing in helping the community. The lengths this organisation is willing to go to ensure that these destitute children have a safe haven is truly awe-inspiring.
Zanethemba Safe Haven houses, feeds, educates and counsels the children at the centre and try to create a stable and loving environment for them. The safe house has a community project for the children, which includes play-days (every Saturday), holiday programmes and a football club that has 80 active members.
In addition, the organisation also works with troubled youth and have exit strategies for gang members, youth at risk and those affected by the scourge of drugs. It also has substance abuse programs in the Northern areas of Port Elizabeth.
The Hollywood Parliament Team sponsored Zanethemba Safe Haven with the following:
• Overhead projector
• Surround sound DVD player
• Child safety gate
• Tables & chairs
• Diapers & changing mats
• Soccer balls and party packs
On 24 January 2013 the Parliament Street team did the hand over at the Zanethemba Safe Haven.
The response we received was fantastic! The kids were thrilled with their party packs and everyone were very grateful for all the items we donated.
It brings us great joy to be a part of this wonderful outreach program and we look forward to many more years of community improvement projects.
