Our 135th Anniversary Gift

What a great way to commemorate 135 years since our 1st establishment. As reported before we received funding from the Victor Daitz Foundation for the building of the hall. This is the progress so far, steel structure was erected and the walls are going up as we speak. We are so excited and cannot wait to officially open the hall to our children. The estimated time for finishing this project is December, hopefully pending on the unplanned weather changes. 

 Dear Donors…We Appreciate you
This month we have also been blessed to receive brand new computers for our resource center. In the past our Business Partner, Alert Engine Parts had donated computers to our resource center but they have needed a face lift…6 brand new computers were installed with the latest Windows as well as Wi-Fi setup together with a color printer. Our children are now able to do research for their school work at their convenience. Our most deepest and greatest Appreciation goes to Alert Engine Parts and Motus Parts for making this possible. 
Our 135 year journey… Where are some of our Children now! 
Our mission is also to maintain contact with every child that walks through our doors, once they disengage from our Home. In this segment we are going to cover 4 children that began their journeys at our organization and are making a success of themselves, proving that “Our circumstances do not define us”
  • N Cebekhulu: has been with PCH for over 8 years, she completed schooling at HS Ebrahim Special school and last year received a 1 year learner ship program with a stipend at Khulisani Academy of Agriculture. We are currently supporting her as she resides at PCH and travels to Merrivale for her studies. 
  • K Ncapayi: Completed his matric at Heather Secondary in 2019, He then decided to re write his Maths and Physics because he wasn’t fully satisfied with his marks, despite achieving accolades. During 2020 he completed one year studying Theology. He is currently enrolled at UKZN doing his 1st year Environmental Science, and we are grateful that with the added support of Life Changers, he was offered suitable accommodation during these difficult transitions.
  • K Nzama: whilst at PCH, he was passionate about law. PCH helped him with sourcing financial support, accommodation and subsidized his stationary, printing and transport costs where possible, as he transitioned into the community. This support helped him to further his law studies at UKZN (PMB), and today he is working as an FNB Compliance Attorney in JHB.
  • J Astro is remembered as a Goal driven individual, his love for soccer and his school work was clearly visibly at an early age. After matric he moved on to live with his host parent. He worked at the V & V Restaurant in PMB for a few years and has since relocated to Durban and continues to work for this company in a senior post.

#135 years of Grace
Heritage Day!
 A day that celebrates the cultural diversity in our country. On this day we get to showcase what it means to be a united rainbow nation. The day started early in the morning with meal preparations. This year on the menu we focused more on the food that our forefathers used to prepare on this special day such as: Istambu (samp), Inhloko and Usu (Tripe). We also added more modern food and prepared it the simple way like how it was done long ago. Of course what is heritage day without going through memory lane on what this day means to us! Songs and Zulu dance performances reinforced how we still follow culture even in the modern day.

Transactions made with simplicity. We often encounter people who want to purchase or make a donation on the spot and the problem is always the fact that we don’t have a card machine to complete this transaction. That is why we have a new and quick way to make payment. It’s simple as 123…remember to tap, swipe or insert your card to complete a transaction.
KFC-Add Hope
This initiative partners with over 138  beneficiaries to ensure that children are receiving a nutritious meal daily. Add Hope raises money through customer donations added at the till or on the Add Hope website, as well as donating a percentage of KFC profits as its own Corporate social responsibility.
This is how it works:
When buying a meal you simply Add R2 for Add Hope to your bill…
Donations are also made by KFC…All that donations goes to the KFC Social Responsibility Trust…who then allocates to suitable applicants
(This Campaign feeds nutritious meals to over 120 000 children every day in South Africa, and PCH is one of their beneficiaries)

Your R2 really does go a long way, and reaches us
to serve our children on a daily basis, so don’t hesitate to make your R2 pledge today!
