Cars washed to help keep centre open

The Iketsetseng Day Care Centre in Matwabeng, Senekal, is hosting a car wash on Saturday (23/11) to keep the doors of the centre open.

This non-profit organisation provides care to approximately 27 disabled children and young adults in Senekal and surround­ing areas.

Three businessmen, Treasure Monkoe, Itumeleng Mabote and Thabiso Motloheloa, adopted this shelter after it received threats that it would be closed.

“If the centre closes, it will not only be the children and young adults who bear the consequences. It will affect the entire community, because the parents will need to transport their children into town,” said Monkoe.

“We want to give back to the community. We as the residents need to bring the change that is needed.”

According to Monkoe, this centre is in an exceptionally bad condition.

“There is no electricity and the kitchen needs to be rewired. The children and young adults receive two meals per day at the shelter, so it is necessary to prepare food.”

The centre is in urgent need of basic items such as food, clothing, desks and playing equipment for the children. They also need wheelchairs for some of the learners.

“Even if people want to spend time with the children, it will be appreciated,” said Monkoe.

There are four staff members, who receive a stipend only every three months.

  • The car wash will take place at the Moletsane Lifestyle Centre in Senekal from 08:00 until late. Bring non-perishable food and clothes to support the centre.

Call Monkoe on 079-811-4529.
