How you can help spread the smile

September 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

At the Durbanville Children’s Home we often get asked: “How can we help?” Below are are a few ways in which you can help put a smile on a little one’s face.


We need non-perishable food items for food parcels

It is very important that our children visit their parents or significant others during school holidays, to ensure that they keep in contact with the communities that they have been removed from. Some of our children visit low-income family members during school holidays and we supply an average of 50 children with food parcels.

If you would like to contribute to this project, please send an email to [email protected] for the list of items needed, or, if you would like to make a financial donation, our banking details can be found below. Please use FOODPARCEL in your reference.

We are expanding our charity shop!

Our charity shop has proven to be very successful and has had a very positive impact on our fundraising targets. We are in the process of converting two garages into a space to sell second hand furniture.

We need the following items: paint, lights, sliding doors, trellidoors and volunteers to help with the labour or a financial donation towards this project is also welcome. Please use CHARITYSHOP in your reference.

Creating a sustainable garden!

The Durbanville Children’s Home takes great pride in the neatness of our grounds and facilities. As everyone knows, water shortages have become a big problem and the problem will only grow bigger in the future. Therefore we have decided to incorporate more “water wise” plants into our garden.

We would like to ask the community to get involved with this project by donating plants, fertiliser, garden rocks, and garden-centre vouchers, or by making a financial donation. Please use GARDEN in your reference.

Volunteer as a homework hand!

All our children need urgent help with their homework; we need the help and support of individuals and groups to assist our children. We invite you to become a homework volunteer, even if it is just once a week. These sessions take place from Monday to Thursday, 15:00 to 17:00. Please contact Yvonne at [email protected], should you want to get involved.
