Sun City Renovates Children’s Centre / North West

Sun City, a Sun International property, has stepped up to assist a local orphans and vulnerable children’s centre.

The initial centre, based in Ledig, in Moses Kotane municipal area, in the North West Province, was located in a dilapidated building, which is a hazard for the children and staff of the centre. Now, Sun City has assisted the non-profit Tsoga Re Thuse, which means ‘rise up and help us’, with improved buildings.

The organization caters for orphans, abused, abandoned, neglected children, elders, and people with chronic illnesses. It caters for 79 children (ranging from toddlers to teenagers) and 9 elders (including people with chronic illnesses). Some of these clients are residents while others live in homes with guardians.

The project has a feeding programme for both children and elderly people, an afterschool programme for those in school and involves children in sports activities, arts as well as cultural activities to keep them off the streets.

Sun City removed and replaced the roof, repaired the walls, plastered, painted, sorted out the electrics and installed doors. The total cost of the project was R133 913.

Sun City aims to include additional features such as ablution facilities with a drainage facility, a homework or dining room centre, technology room, as well as an isolation room. It also seeks to create a fresh produce facility.

“All these are part of the aspirations of the centre and will require strategic partnerships with other corporates,” says Khumo Magano, Socio-Economic Development & Community Engagement Manager for Sustainability at Sun City Resort.

Magano adds that Sun City is delighted to be able to help its surrounding community. “We are very pleased to be able to support our communities during this trying time for all of us.”
