We would like to introduce you to Sipho (photo: middle child), a child whose life has been transformed because of your kindness and generosity:
“I am one of thousands of children in KwaZulu Natal (KZN) orphaned by HIV/AIDS.
Most of us are taken into informal foster care by members of our own communities who often do not have the money to provide food, clothes and schooling.
Most of my friends and I attend unregistered crèches that are not recognized and because of this the government cannot help support us.
I am one of the lucky ones. I attend the Siyazama Crèche run by MaNkize. It’s only because of the generous gifts from people like you that Save the Children has been able to assist MaNkize. She gets a monthly food voucher but still has to pay the other ladies who help her to run the Crèche.
I feel very proud to wear my school uniform that Save the Children buys me at the beginning of every year. We also receive healthy meals every day and are taught fun things that help us to learn."
The impact we are making
Because of generous hero’s like you we are able to transform the lives of children like Sipho.
Save the Children is in the process of rehabilitating and equipping centres to provide children with a more child-friendly learning environment. To date we have reached 1,350 crèches in KZN.
We have impacted on the standard of care and development provided to over 40,500 young children. And with your support, we could do more. Commit to making a difference by setting up a monthly donation today:
