With a cold front on the way from Cape Town and over a hundred persons that requested and required blankets, we had to get going as the blankets requests was spread over a large area.
The blanket delivery’s coincided with our scheduled baby food deliveries. Baby & Toddler food parcels is very child specific as children’s needs differ according to age groups, allergies and so on.
The average cost of a baby food parcel is R660 per parcel and a child receives a parcel every two weeks costing R1320-00 per child per month.
We received a very needed and fantastic blanket donation of 150 brand new blankets from Crossing Nelspruit shopping centre, making it possible for us to assist over 100 people with blankets.
We wish to thank Crossing Centre, the centre that is the #myheartbeat of Nelspruit, that continues to supports Pediatric Care Africa and the on-going medical and healthcare outreaches done by Dr Andre Hattingh, the Pediatric Care Africa Team and the many medical professionals and volunteers involved. As the saying goes, “It takes a village to bring up a child” and Crossing Centre’s commitment to the Lowveld community – and Pediatric Care Africa – is testament to this.
Thank you Crossing Centre Nelspruit on behalf of all the little ones you help to keep healthy!
