ROSE ZWANE'S SAFE HAVEN
Rose Zwane has run a very successful Safe Haven for vulnerable children and has also cared for the aged for a long time. She accommodates 25 children on a permanent basis and houses abandoned babies from the KwaDukuza hospital, until child welfare places them in homes or with different organizations. Rose Zwane cooks for and feeds over seventy-five children and elderly people.
The Christmas Fair Fund has for many years given Rose an annual sum to assist in running this initiative in Lindelani. This has grown from a small home into a major project where not only do they take in the needy and vulnerable, but run programs in the local hall over the weekends in an endeavour to keep the children off the streets. We have a couple of Christmas Fair Fund ladies who have assisted Rose for over 15 years. Recently we received a donation of small tables and chairs and these were given to The Safe Haven for use in their community hall.
