Water Saving initiatives

We would like to thank everyone for the donations of water that we have been receiving since the water crises in Cape Town made it’s headway. We received assistance through Disaster Management for non –potable water, that we will be using for the cisterns/ lawn , Still water through Waterwise –and water4capetown donated 2 x 2500litre Jo-Jo tanks and 50 x 5 litre bottles. This is besides the efforts wrt donations of water from Gift of the givers and the water and hand sanitisers from Dis-chem foundation. No Flush from Albex to spray in toilets to lessen flushing – All this is besides our combined efforts of the staff/children carrying the bottles of water to the bathroom on a daily basis, our staff having to educate the children why not to waste water and the concerted efforts of staff to use the laundry grey water for the lawn and the garden ensuring a green lawn for the children to play on.

 

The water consumption is monitored daily and now we are able to keep track and ensure that City of Cape town billing is based on an actual reading instead of an estimation.

Local golfers causing damage to Children’s home windows

On arrival at work on Monday, 7th April 2018, I was informed of the Indoor Playroom window that was broken. Upon investigation, we found that sometime over the weekend, persons that played Golf on the side of the building (either in Spes Bona School grounds or from the field behind Spes Bona school)  caused us this broken window costing us R 950.00 to repair.  We would just like to appeal to the person’s responsible to please be careful and take cognisance of the damage they caused. The children could not play in the area for three days as we needed to ensure that all the glass splinters were removed and the glass replaced. We asking residents in the area please be on the look out if they see these people playing golf on the fields in close proximity to our children’s home.

Help raise awareness for this fundraising drive please

Hello Everyone!

On the 21st of April 2018 I will be swimming from Robben Island to Big Bay Beach, Cape Town. This is part of the Freedom Swim Series. I have decided that starting a fundraising campaign would be an excellent way to help some of those less fortunate.

The Christine Revell Children’s Home, located in Athlone, Cape Town; is where I will be donating any and all generous donations from friends, family and those who are willing to contribute. The Christine Revell Children’s Home provides full time care for 49 children, from birth to age 5. These children have been referred to the home by social workers and placed there by order of a children’s court. The children are either neglected, abandoned, abused, orphaned and are accepted at the home irrespective of HIV status, race or gender.

I reach out to anyone and everyone in an attempt to make the lives of these 49 children a little more pleasant and enjoyable. Any donation no matter the size will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way in aiding The Christine Revell Children’s Home financially.
