Dear Donors….We appreciate you
Our deepest sense of appreciation is extended to all our lovely donors who continued to give back even during the Nationwide Lockdown. After the Historical Announcement by our Honored President that the whole of South Africa will be placed on lockdown, work did not stop, as PCH is classified as a Designated Essential Service to Children.
In a somewhat trying time, we are grateful to know and experience the generous support of our donors who decided to continue giving back to us, even though it meant that there will be no interactions or physical engagements with our Children.
As a team of committed Board members, Management and Staff, and on behalf of our Children,  we say Thank You for all that you continue to do for us.
Icebolethu Group was one such donor who, represented by their Marketing Manager- Zama Mazibuko and accompanied by Mr. Vincent Masenti Myeni, Dr Nomfundo Shozi, Dalroy Moon (Board member) and Ryan Moon coordinated and donated much needed essential goods to us.

Many Donors also made  their way to PCH to give back in kind, via grocery items, meals,  and lovely treats. To each and every one of you, we say THANK YOU…        May God richly bless each and everyone of you!

Freedom Day Celebration…
27th April -programmes continued to be conducted as normal. If there is one thing this lockdown has taught each and every of us is “APPRECIATION” even in times of social distancing -appreciation of life in general, appreciating one another…
Our children conducted a programme that was coordinated by them to commemorate this special day. They further learnt what it means to be free in South Africa as well as the fact that being free comes with responsibility and appreciation.
Songs, dance, poems, and sketches were enjoyed by all. 
“Being Together in this”- Covid -19
Dedicated Child and youth Care workers continued to perform educational talks and awareness programs on the Covid -19 virus, to equip the children about the importance of personal safety.  They were taught about the importance of covering your mouth with a tissue when sneezing and disposing of that tissue properly, how to cough in an appropriate manner, and how to make face masks using cloth and the way to properly put on a cloth covering. Well done to our young ones…
Easter Egg Hunt….
It wouldn’t be Easter without Easter eggs right? What better way to have a fun filled day by doing an Easter egg hunt which all children can participate in. Various Easter eggs where hidden in plain site for the Children to find and enjoy them as a lovely treat. This was definitely one of the fun activities to participate as not did it only test their speed but their dedication.
A special thank you to our Easter donors for making the effort to deliver such goodies during the lockdown!
Gardening by our very own…..
As part of teaching our Children to be independent and take good care of the earth as it does to us, gardening is one of the important life skills that they get to learn about during their free time. Under the guidance of Miss Mhlophe our social worker, the senior boys gave a little love to the garden by weeding and watering of plants and vegetables. The boys certainly enjoyed this exercise and our greatest appreciation also goes to them for their commitment.  
This month I think it will be appropriate if we take a look to our very own dedicated staff at PCH. These are the “Malumes” and “Aunties” who dedicated themselves to continued to serve and protect our children during this difficult times. They do not only serve as Child and Youth Care Workers, Social worker, Child Care Manager, General Manager and Administrator but also take the role of being parents, providers as well as caregivers to all the children in our care. SIYABONGA hero’s and heroin’s.
