Komati Care Centre

The KCC is a registered non-profit organisation (Registration Number 053 – 765 – NPO) established to feed vulnerable children in the Orlando township, South Africa.

The children we help are from a community much in need of help to overcome poverty.

We have established a school to provide nursery and pre-school education, which combined with the feeding programme, offers the opportunity for a positive start in life to these children.

Sitimele Activity Centre

On Friday 27th October, members of the United Church of Christ The King Komatipoort in conjunction with staff from RCL Foods Corporate Social Investment division handed over two reconditioned wheelchairs, a set of crutches and a defy stove to staff and attendees of the Sitimele Activity & Stimulation Center in Naas. Sitimele is a day center for disabled children and adults offering basic education and activities.

The items were donated by members of the “United Church of Christ the King” and were refurbished by Mike & Elroux Norton with assistance from Ansie Joubert who specializes in upholstery and alterations who made new seats and backrests for the chairs, the two chairs were given to Mpho Phangisa and Malibongwe Khesane whose condition needed the donated instruments for their daily movement to and from the center. Fruit and confectionary was also distributed to attendees with RCL FOODS also handing over a number of Sugar products to the center.

Sitimele is one of a number of projects where both RCL FOODS and the Church are involved, the center attendees are some of the most needy of the Nkomazi community and anyone who would like to assist with donations of wheel chairs or spares or items which would be able to assist the disabled can please contact Mike Norton on 082 555 7165. Currently a project at the center is to develop a vegetable garden and RCL FOODS in partnership with Mgubho farming services recently donated a borehole and tank to assist in this project and to supply the center with fresh water.

Attending the hand over were Mr. Vusi Zitha, Lucky Singwane and Gogo Bhila of the Sitimele Activity & Stimulation Center, Kenneth Phiri and Lerato Sambo from RCL Foods Corporate Social Investment Division, Reverend Helen Wilkinson, and Mike & Elroux Norton with their Grandson Michael of the United Church of Christ the King and Ansie Joubert.
