Change a Child’s Life Today

We believe that with just a little help these children can rise above their circumstances. The help that we receive from our sponsors and donors goes a long way to ensuring the success of our children’s positive development. The Melkbos Care Centre submits audited accounts annually and is a registered Public Benefit Organisation which enables us to supply all donors with a tax certificate for submission with your annual tax claim.

“Sounds great! How can I help?”

Donate food, educational materials or school uniforms

The Care Centre provided approximately 12,220 meals in 2011, which for many of the children will be their only hot and nutritious meal of the day. We would greatly appreciate donations of food items, sports equipment, educational equipment and vouchers for school uniforms.
