Brits/ Rabokala – On Monday 2 December, Rebaone Community Care Centre caregivers and orphans received an early Christmas gift from the Goldrush Foundation. 

Goldrush provided funds for the construction and installation of junior ablution facilities at the centre as part of their initiative of making a positive impact in the community. 

There was much pride and joy at the care centre as representatives from the foundation and the North West Department of Education arrived to officially open the ablution facilities.

Rebaone Community Care Centre is a home to orphans aged from three to five years. The facility offers a feeding scheme and an early childhood development programme. A thriving garden ensures a constant supply of vegetables to the children while also providing an extra income. 

Founder of Rebaone Community Care Centre George Makhubela, thanked Goldrush Foundation for their gift.  

“We are a non-profit organisation and we have faced a lot of challenges since we began operating this facility in 2013. We are extremely grateful for these new facilities. I am a prayerful person and God continues to help us to take care of these children,” he said. 

Raymond Thakuli, Goldrush Foundation compliance manager, said the centre is playing a crucial role in the fight against child abuse.

“We are currently marking the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign and it is initiatives like these that help in addressing such wrongs.”

The handing over of the new ablution facilities was well received.
