The Sinethemba Special Care Centre
for physically and mentally disabled children
A long waiting list demands an extension
The Fish Hoek Kommetjie Noordhoek Welfare Association, a registered non profit organisation, has been active in the area since 1954. The welfare association built the Sinethemba Special Care Centre in Masiphumelele two years ago. It can accommodate 24 children but a long waiting list of handicapped children needing taken care of demands an extension of the existing building.
The building activities have already commenced
The Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope, in recognising the needs in the community and the splendid work being done by Sinethemba, undertook to help to build this extension. So far the Fish Hoek Kommetjie Noordhoek Welfare Association together with the Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope have collected R300 000. These accumulated funds cover the major part of the total estimated project costs. Due to the urgent need of the extension the Welfare Association and the Rotary Club decided to commence with the building activities.
We still need support
The spontaneous and generous support we received so far gives us confidence that we shall raise the still needed R110 000 while the construction of the building is already under way.
The children, the therapists and the management of the Sinethemba Special Care Centre together with all the members of the Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope wish to express their sincere gratitude to all sponsors. Your ongoing generous contributions support our commitments to improve the lives of even more handicapped children in Masiphumelele.
