A Christmas project to give the orphaned, abandoned and abused children of Huis Ebenhaeser an unforgettable Christmas celebration and holiday. Huis “Ebies” is an orphanage and house of safety situated in Daspoort who currently houses ~30 children between the ages of 2 and 18. Unfortunately as a result of the current economic climate and not being able to contribute to a score on their donor’s BEE Certificates, Huis Ebies has lost almost all of its financial support.
There is still a huge need for involvement for Huis Ebies as we approach the end of the year. There are 3 initiatives that need support:
1. Christmas Function
For Saturday’s Christmas function the following is still needed:
- 30 x gifts for goodie bags for kids (we only have 1 book for each at this stage)
- 4 x gifts for the adult caregivers
- 2 x gifts for the children that are also training as caregivers
- More volunteers to assist
A Christmas Party will be held at Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre who have sponsored a beautiful day filled with a special talk, farm animal visits and allowing each child to “adopt” a pet for the day for a fun walk. They have also included jumping castles, a soft toy play park and a gladiator slide for the children. Each child will select a dog to for the walk, but unfortunately, same cannot be done without adult supervision and an adult volunteer is required per child. We therefore require volunteers for the day. We are currently on 15 adult volunteers and need 15more.
When: 30 November 2019
Time: 10:00 – 14:00
Where: Wetnose, Vaalbank, Bronkhosrtspruit AH (27km from PTA East)
Cost: R 70 (for braai pack & salads) per person
Important: Please bring your children along.
2. December Holiday and School 2020
Target Amount: R 100 000
Huis Ebies have been granted the use of a house by the beach. We are trying to raise sufficient funds for them to go this year. This includes cash donations, food gift vouchers etc. We would highly appreciate it if you could share it with your network. This is a highlight for the children as Huis Ebies has very limited space and play areas for the children.
The target amount also includes preparation for the new school year as all the children need school clothes and stationary.
3. School Bags
We are aiming to provide each child with a proper durable personalised schoolbag. R 425 x 26 children. The children highly value personalised items and we would therefore like to have each child’s name printed on the bag.
