This month we returned to Ekukhanyeni EduCare in Mfuleni, with a very special delivery.
Not only did we load the bakkie with the last of our old office furniture needing a new home, we also purchased 60 creche mattresses! Our Chairman’s family charity, Rachel’s Wishes, asked for our help in purchasing these essential items, as not only do they ensure that the little children have a comfortable and safe place to rest during the day, it also takes the creche one step closer to getting the formal registration they require. There was much excitement, singing and laughing at the sight of these simple mattresses. As Princess, who runs this special place, explained, “Now the children no longer have to sleep on their desks”. For young children, who can sometimes spend over 12 hours a day at the centre, the mattresses really do make a big difference.
