Dis-Chem foundation’s Random Acts of Kindness has donated R 120 000 in a store account to purchase nappies, formula and medication to New BeginningZ, a Pretoria-based NGO.
New BeginningZ is a shelter for abandoned children who does not have a place to call home.
Lynette Erasmas, manager of the New BeginningZ shelter says they specialise in rehabilitation and intervention.
“Our work is to do early intervention and rehabilitation to get the children back into society either through family reunification, adoption or foster care placements.”
Erasmus says the organisation houses 30 abandoned children.
Dis-Chem foundation’s Sherry Saltzman says what stood out for her when she visited the foundation is the love in the shelter.
“The carers in this home truly love these children and have a special bond with these children. The Dis-Chem Foundation is giving the haven R120, 000 in a store account to purchase nappies, formula and medication.”
