On Wednesday the 2nd of November the younger children at Durbanville Children’s Home were treated to a party to celebrate the launch of their new play area and jungle gym which was donated by Cordoba Wines.


Cordoba Wines said in a statement: “We decided to get involved at Durbanville Children’s Home to improve children’s lives and to make a difference in their future and wellbeing. We have a great passion for children and to see them happy really warms our hearts. Just seeing them on the jungle gym was a heartfelt experience; to witness the joy in their eyes. If all we can bring is joy, then we did our part.”


We at Durbanville Children’s Home are very grateful for the donation.


Esmarie van Heerden (director) and Carmen Vermeulen (accountant) represented Cordoba Wines at the party. Here they are at the jungle gym which they had donated.


Op 2 November is die jonger kinders in die Durbanville Kinderhuis verras met ’n partytjie – en dit was alles om die speelgim te vier wat deur Cordoba Wines geskenk is. Daar was koekies en balonne en koeldrank en yslollies, alles om die kinderharte bly te maak.

Little drummer kids!

November 7, 2016 in Uncategorized


We have started a drumming circle for our little ones. Drumming is a great way to improve a child’s hand-eye coordination, intelligence and self-confidence.

Their first performance was at our AGM in September, which was a huge treat!

Performing in front of a crowd is a huge accomplishment for them as they come from environments that did not encourage self-belief. We want to encourage the young ones to perform on a regular basis at events in the community and are keen to make drumming costumes for them to look smart in.

The total cost would be R 1 700 for the 22 costumes.
