Before the start of the 2012 Easter weekend, the HR Team assisted in delivering over 600 marshmallow Easter eggs, donated by Three Cities, and juice, kindly donated by Avonmore Spar, to the children and babies at the Edith Benson Babies’ and Childrens’ Home in Sherwood, Durban.
Children are accommodated in six different cottages with 12 to14 children in each cottage. The home tries to make suitable arrangements for the children when they turn 18 as they then have to leave the home and are no longer eligible for child support grants. Children from the Edith Benson Babies’ Home who are not placed in foster care move to this home on turning seven. The Edith Benson Babies’ Home is on the same premises.
The Easter eggs were to be used for an egg hunt in the garden on Easter Sunday, but some of the little ones could not wait that long and were given Easter eggs on the day. The smiles on their little faces said it all!
