Lovely treats by Willowton Bakery School

Willowton Bakery school is situated in Orthman road in PMB and from the day they opened their doors they have been very supportive to PCH. This school donates cream cakes as well as cupcakes baked fresh by the Bakery school’s students to our children. Their delicious treats are highly appreciated and enjoyed by all our children.

Dear Mr Pillay and Family…We appreciate you
Mr. Pillay, the owner of Nu-print made a generous pledge at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, to donate more than 1000 loaves of bread in partnership with the PMB Community Chest (who assisted with the distribution) to different organizations. PCH was one of the beneficiaries of this wonderful initiative. 

Thank You Mr Pillay and Family…God Bless you.

Spring has sprung !

It’s that time of the year- Springtime. Spring is one of the 4 temperate seasons and the most exciting season for those who love planting. It is a season that brings light and warmth to the plants which bloom beautifully. PCH was delighted to welcome spring again this year even though it was raining and cold. Children managed to create a beautiful poster explaining what is spring day and what does it mean to them. 

A Netball Friendly Game 
Did anybody say netball is only for girls? Well, it turns out that netball is classified as the world’s most popular women’s participation sport in South Africa. However this is also played by a large number of men. Our children also took it upon themselves to prove that netball can also be played by boys. Unit 3 (senior boys) and 4 (senior girls) organized a friendly match between the 2 units. Both teams walked away victorious. 
With Love: Ethekwini Caterers
The onset of Spring was celebrated in style…Ethekwini Caterers and 3 of our senior girls baked a chocolate cake which had many decorative colors representing spring and was shared by everyone. Homemade pizza as well as chips and punch were also made by our aspiring chefs.  Ethekwini Caterers surprised the children with a water slide and fun was definitely the order of the day.
Donors in a fight against Covid-19
Our heartfelt appreciation is extended to all our lovely sponsors who have been donating much needed supplies to help combat the spread of Covid-19.
With 75 Children, as an organization we are dedicated to ensure that all our Children are taken care of and protected.
September has proven to be one of the most toughest months in the PCH Calendar, with our facility becoming part of the Covid19 Statistics!  We were faced with the worst possible scenario of having to manage the onset of positive cases of the virus amongst those in our facility. We appreciated the support of the Department of Health and Environmental Health officials in guiding us through a further lockdown to ensure that we provided the highest level of safety and care for all on site.
A special Thank you to our amazing Child Care Workers who faced this challenge head on with courage and commitment, remaining on site during the lockdown – we are humbled by your dedication to work in the best interest of our Children at all times.
With God’s Grace and the kind support from our well wishers and suppliers PCH withered this storm and is stronger than before!
