On 24 September 2014 all Cape Town Skin, Body & Health Renewal staff visited and worked at the Christine Revell Children's Home, based in Athlone, Cape Town.
"The NPO organisation provides full-time care for up to 49 babies and children from birth to five years of age who have been referred by social workers and placed at the home by order of a children’s court. The children are either neglected, abandoned, abused, orphaned and are accepted at the home irrespective of HIV status, race or gender. They strive to create a warm, friendly and homely environment, but our ultimate aim is to re-unite a child with its parents or the extended family should circumstances permit. Children are also placed into foster care with suitable families in the communities and when the proper legal channels have been followed children can also be adopted."
Through generous donations from our staff, suppliers and clients we were able to make a valuable contribution and spend a day too clean, cook, garden, paint and play with the children. If you would like to get involved and support this amazing organisation, who are driven and passionate about these children, please contact them via their website - they will gladly assist and welcome all help and donations received.
