National feeding initiative makes contribution to centre in Bhm

The Charlotte Theron Child and Youth Care Centre in Bethlehem, Free State received a cheque of R103 000 from KFC’s Add Hope.

The non-profit organisation provides full-time care to children who have been removed from their homes by the Children’s Court because they are in need of care and protection.

The programme is more than 100 years old and follows a holistic approach in its care of the children, as all facets of childcare are covered – pro­tection, education and childhood development. The centre takes care of 123 children, ranging from birth to 18 years.

The centre runs a feeding programme, providing three balanced meals according to an approved menu.

“It is very important for us to provide nutritious meals, because it has an influence on the children’s concentration, be­haviour and general health,” says Surette Labuschagne, principal.

“Most of the children who come to the centre are physically neglected or have special feeding needs.

“We are grateful for the support from KFC Add Hope, which allows us to care for the children. Our children’s wellbeing and the quality of care we provide, are very important to us. Financial support like this enables us to meet their needs, so that they don’t feel unworthy, and can develop their full potential.”

The Add Hope initiative has grown to support sustainable feeding programmes across South Africa, partnering with 143 organisations to provide more than 120 000 children, like those at the Charlotte Theron Youth and Child Care Centre with meals.
