Sandton City recently donated beanies and gloves as part of its monthly essential packs to the Centre’s two selected charities, Banakekeleni and Abangani E Nkosini homes in Alexandra.

The children and caretakers alike were elated with the gifts which have provided protection during the ongoing spurts of cold weather.

“The children are vulnerable to the temperamental climate, especially when they are going to school. The donation will go a long way in alleviating their plight,” said Rose Martins, the Principal Caretaker at Banakekeleni.

Over the last three month’s Sandton City has donated polar fleece blankets, vests, socks, beanies and gloves to over 140 children in the area.

“As we are heading into the warmer months, Sandton City is committed to continuously identify the needs of these children and to assist wherever possible,” says Sharon Swain, Centre Manager.

“The difference we are making in our immediate community is greatly appreciated by these children and their families.”

Banakekeleni, meaning ‘take care of them’, is a hospice and Aids orphanage that cares for infected and affected children and adults. Abangani E Nkosini is a centre of care for orphaned and vulnerable children, the sick and elderly.

They provide social support, encourage rejuvenation in the community, take on social responsibility and engage in basic, broad based economic empowerment that spreads into the Alexandra Township.
