Winter-Break bliss

Winter break at PCH is all about taking time for yourself after the strenuous examinations. A time to just close your books and laze around. To us this means programs galore! The past 3 weeks have been educational and packed with loads of fun. Team building, quality check and “I rely on you” were some of the programs that the children participated in. These showed the importance of always remaining united in whatever situations you find yourselves in. Our children also enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and biscuits along the campfire with some good story telling. Our very own artists had an opportunity to showcase their talent and demonstrate their love of art by facepainting the junior boys and girls. The Cartoonz cottage also spent a day with Tayler from St Nicholas school indulging in various games and puzzles.

All hard work must pay off in the end – the junior girls also played flip the bottle. If it stands upright, one received a yummy treat for their effort. Other games played included: ABC Challenge, indigenous games and drama activities.

A huge shout out to the CYCWs for coordinating and the executing these fun activities.!

A day with Greenfields CYCC

Greenfields CYCC based in Dalton, spent a day with PCH for greater course. On this day the teams planned to debate on the pros and cons of social media. One team argued that this is a faster and easier method to obtain, interact with others as well as gather information. They stated that in these modern times-one needs to stay in the know and in the now. The other stated that we have lived without social media before and we can still do that. They stated that the internet is full of pedophiles and offenders who take pleasure in preying on children. It is also a breeding ground for cyber bullying. Both teams made valid points for their choices and learnt a lot from each other. The day was sealed with a friendly soccer match, Greenfields boys certainly gave our boys a run for their money,

needless to say, everybody had fun!

TLC from Ackermans (LMM)

The wonderful Staff from Ackerman’s at the Liberty Midlands Mall visited our home to do community service. They assisted in cleaning up our roof by removing weeds and hosing it clean with a pipe. The ladies also assisted with cleaning of the windows in all our cottages as well as the office block.  Their humble efforts to involve themselves in helping us with some daily house cleaning tasks was really appreciated. Thank you to the team from Ackerman’s for giving us your love through your time and hard work!

A memorable Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela was a firm believer of giving. In one of his quotes, he said

“Giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything

in return is a greatest gift”.

This year, our hearts are filled with so much gratitude for the love and support shown to us on this Mandela day.


Netcare St Annes hospital, coordinated by Shanila Moodley and Merill Manikom were the first to arrive and donated 202 loaves of brown and white bread to our home. This initiative was a team effort from all staff, in all departments. Thank you so much St Annes, through your wonderful initiative, we were able to save R1500 on bread purchases.

Hilton Life Healthcare Hospital, coordinated by Suzette donated X75 pre-packed lunches consisting of a sandwich, juice and a packet of chips for each child. The donated packs went towards their school lunch again saving us costs for school lunches and snacks.

Daisy Business Solutions team was generous enough to bless us with toiletry items consisting of toilet rolls and toothbrushes for each child, toys such as soccer balls, hula hoops and skipping ropes. These items were in our wish list and are of great assistance with our programs, and we are grateful to Rachel for this initiative.

Liberty Midlands Mall coordinated by Minoli Chetty Kruger and Tasmia Dayaram, joined forces with the caring Store Managers from Game Store, Pick ‘n Pay and Krispy Kreme to visit and spend time with our children. They handed us a cash donation of R5000, a brand-new TV set, clothes, arts and crafts items, books and toys.

In addition to this, they brought our children freshly baked cakes made with love by Pick ‘n Pay and fresh doughnuts donated by krispy creme.

Other special donors couldn’t make it but showed their generosity with their donations:

Gopals bags and luggage (LMM) for their cash donation
