Christmas Charity Drive for Ncedolwethu EduCare Centre

Converge Consulting spreading a little Christmas cheer to those less fortunate.

We as a company have a long-standing relationship with Ncedolwethu Edu-care Center and delivered 42 Santa Shoe Boxes for the children that the staff put together.

We had an incredibly humbling morning watching the children open their gifts. After much excitement, the children sang a few songs and Lizo said a few words.

We were extremely honored and privileged to have been able to spend the morning with these beautiful children.



Ncedolwethu Edu-care Center was established in 1994 by Florence Dodovu and is located in Mfuleni (near Blue Downs) in the Western Cape, South Africa. Florence currently has 9 children living with her that have been abandoned. 
 
She also runs an Edu-care Center for approximately 35 children from the neighbourhood (from 7 am to 5 pm from Mondays to Fridays). Many of the children rely on the Center for their only meal of the day.

In addition, at least 15 additional older children who are at primary school in the morning attend the Center in the afternoons, again many of whom rely on the Center for their only daily meal. http://www.ncedolwethu.org/

Hatch Charity Drive

Our recent charity drive, together with valued and generous clients, was for Hatch.

Hatch is a non-profit organisation that organised starter kits for new moms from underprivileged areas, giving them and their babies some of the essentials for those first few weeks that most people take for granted.

Each hatch bag contains a blanket, baby grow, vests, hat, socks, nappies, cotton wool, wipes, baby soap, aqueous cream, a soft toy, and sanitary pads for mom. Hopefully hatch can make it a little easier for mom and baby.

For more information on this incredible initiative, or to make a donation, please contact them on jacqui@hatch.org.za or visit their website www.hatch.org.za

Madiba Day

We celebrated this Madiba Day by collecting blankets for the children at Lawrence House. A Child and Youth Care Centre that provides a special place of safety and care for abandoned and orphaned refugee children and unaccompanied foreign minors. We know the blankets will add a little warmth and colour in the cold winter weather. Thank you to the Lawrence House Team for all the great work they do.
