“As Rotaract Club of Durban we have worked closely with the Winter Warmth project run by ECR, Hub and Rotary in previous years. So when applications were due for this year’s allocation of blankets – we did not hesitate to apply. We were allocated 400 blankets of which we have used as numerous charities. We believe in truly searching for those who are in dire situations.”
This is when the Rotaract Club of Durban decided to team up with Durban north based NPO, Indlela. Through the Learning For Life programme, a HIV/AIDS prevention programme, a number of Learners have been identified as OVC (Orphaned and Vulnerable Children). Being orphaned and vulnerable, these children either have no parents, are living in child headed households or with gogo’s or neighbours. Being a cold winter, Indlela and The Rotaract Club of Durban, stepped in to assist these children in need, distributing blankets to the Children at Zwakele Primary, in Amaoti.
