Mandela Day – Lift and Carry a Child
(18 July 2020)
We have never had a year like 2020! While we acknowledge the challenges the world and South Africa are currently facing, we know this for sure: Our work NOW is more important than ever! We need to continue with what we are doing – protecting and taking care of vulnerable children in Tshwane. We have been doing this successfully for over 100 years.
This Mandela Day will be different. We will not be able to receive large numbers of groups or visitors at our 9 community service points. We will not be able to receive large numbers of in-kind donations – as we need to sanitise everything that was touched and handled for the safety of our children. What we can do is to ask our loyal friends, supporters, and donors to help us in a different way.
Imagine a father lifting a child up on his shoulders...many of us have that special childhood memory - and even when you do not have such good memories, you have the opportunity now to make that happen! When children are lifted up they feel safe, loved, and supported. That is how we would like our children to feel this Mandela Day – LIFTED AND CARRIED by the special friends, supporters, and donors of Child Welfare Tshwane. We need all the financial support we can get to continue with delivering our services to children who need it.
One of those essential services is Therapy and Medical Services – especially Healing and Attachment Therapy, Social/Emotional Interventions and Medical and Dental Expenses.
Will you consider lifting and carrying a child on your shoulders? You can do this by making a financial donation towards the THERAPY AND MEDICAL EXPENSES of our children anytime between today and 18 July 2020. It will mean the world to them and to us!
