Dear Donors….We appreciate you
Our deepest sense of appreciation is extended to all our lovely donors who continued to give back even during this bad pandemic. SOMTA Tools took the initiative to make our lives better by donating this wonderful Sani-Station which consists of a bulk unit with an adaptor as well as 5L Sanitizer. This wonderful donation was handed over by SOMTA tools representative Miss Lucinda and Mr Lindo and was well received by PCH. During this time we understand that we cannot touch anything handled by someone else in order to avoid contamination and that is why this Sani-Station has made a huge difference in our staff and children’s lives.

We send our greatest appreciation to everyone who continues to give in cash or kind during this difficult time. We appreciate you for keeping us in your hearts thus far and may God richly bless each and everyone of you. 

International Child and Youth Care Workers’ week…
On the 04th-10th May was International Child and Youth Care Workers Week, commemorating the wonderful work by Child and Youth Care Workers who are key role players in the support and care of vulnerable Children in our society. Focus was on the positive impact that this new and developing Profession, has been making in our Children’s lives. The theme this year was “Making moments memorable for vulnerable children and Youth”. The Children made posters in order to appreciate the impact made by “Aunties and Uncles” in their everyday lives. CYCW’s provide 24 hour Essential Care services throughout the year to our children, both in Residential care and in the communities. Slogans such as “I am because you are” was one of the ways the Children showed appreciation to them. We salute you for working around the clock in making sure that our Children’s hoilistic needs are met.
May 2020 Programmes…
Keeping in Shape 
Keeping in shape is not only regarded as a recreational task but is also imperative in keeping the body, mind and immune system on track. Mornings at PCH are dedicated to having a routine body excercise which will also assist in keeping the immune system strong. The young ones definately enjoy this as it is also filled with lots of fun. 
Learning more about Covid-19
During this time it was also important to gather as more information as one can about the Coronavirus. This day was not only dedicated to learning but we all are aware that putting things in practice is also exciting. The proper use of masks, sanitizers as well as social distancing was among the things the children got to learn about.
Our Motto remains: Learning doesn’t stop!!!
Church Service
Learning about God is also comforting during these tough times and yes we do not get to go to church like any other days but we can definitely have our own church services at the home. On this day the children as well as the Child care workers gathered together to share the word of God. In difficult times it is easier to call onto his name and he in turn will strengthen us and remind  us to stay positive -We are in this together and we will beat it!
Computer Practice…..
The resource Centre is definitely coming in very handy during this time as many of our children are utilizing it for research, a great book read or simply computer practicing. The resource center has the ability to instill great attitude which in turn will take our Children to greater latitude. Appreciation also goes to the CYCW’s for their supervision during this learning experience.
