Home unveils renovations

St Joseph’s Home has just completed R46 million worth of renovations to its hospital and other areas important to creating a child-friendly environment for children with life-threatening illnesses or other chronic conditions.

They have five wards for children aged from 0 to 17 years and assist patients who have been discharged from acute hospitals, but are not yet well enough to go home.

The home was opened 82 years ago by the Pallottine Sisters and they are still involved!

“Our patients all come from disadvantaged communities, and the services they receive are free of charge. We have a 24-hour hospital, a full range of therapeutic services, a special school and preschool, and social workers working here,” says spokesperson, Alrika Hefers. “We have to raise about R3 million per year extra and we do this by asking corporates and individuals to sponsor the shortfall of one bed per year at R35 700.
