DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Kingdom Life Children Centre is registered with the Department of Social Development as a “home”. Meaning, we receive grants for children whose cases have been finalised in the centre by the department and the social worker, and there is a court order giving the centre guardianship over that child.
FUNDS FROM JRS
The JRS refugee service contributes an amount of R300.00 per month for each child they refer to the centre. This amount is supposed to cover for their accommodation, clothing, food and school amenities.
The centre largely depends on waste food donations from Woolworths (Hill Crest); Pick and Pay (Hill Crest) Shoprite (Attlyn); and other small businesses. Kotu Bakery also assists us with bread.
Government departments, specifically Department of Public Works; Dept Social Development; and SANDF have partnered with us in making some of our children’s dreams come true.
Assupol has supported us with various donations since 2002. Their input in the running of the centre has helped the organisation to achieve a lot. We still enjoy having this relationship to date.
Local Churches are one of our biggest donors of clothing and dry foods.
There are other organisations, and social clubs which have donated much appreciated essentials. Students from Switzerland donated toys and toiletries
We appreciate private individuals who donate their time; money; clothing and food. Some would just come and drop off their gifts; receiving such donations is truly amazing.
This is a summary of some of our donors; they are fully stated in the annual report.
