“They are not government funded and rely on donations to provide a service to vulnerable children. Their main focus is on abuse, abandonment and children living with HIV. They operate as a crisis house, which is a temporary place of safety. They are cooperating with Durban Child Protection and SAPS,” said Cpt Le Roux.
The subsistence care pack was donated by Acting VISPOL Commander, Cpt Sarel Kruger, to NPO Founder, Glynnis Dauth and Volunteer, Youandi Gilain, on behalf of the Brighton Beach Station Commander. Col Qaphe Ngubane.
“This gesture highlighted an act of humanity, thus supporting the spirit of ubuntu. As Nelson Mandela once said: There can be no finer revelation of the soul of a society than the way it treats its children,” said Cpt Le Roux in closing.
