Changing the world, one child at a time
Christway Religious And Social Services
“To meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of every disadvantaged individual in the South of Johannesburg.”
In our community most of the parents, if employed, are low income earners that can not afford the fees of a crèche for the young ones or a afternoon day-care centre for their school going brothers and sisters.
The children are picked-up from their homes and brought to the crèche/day-care centre by Christway. Here the children are fed breakfast, lunch and a snack at 15:00 before going home. The babies are bathed before being picked-up by their parents.
For some of the children, the food they receive at the centre is the only food they are given for the day. This too applies to the children that are bathed at the centre, most of their parents homes don’t have running water. The crèche/day-care centre currently accommodates 200 children until the afternoon when they are joined by the school going children.
These then bring the numbers up to 400 at the end of the day!
