TREE, a non-profit organisation specialising in Early Childhood Development (ECD), resource and training, was not excluded from the devastation caused by the floods in KZN.
The ECD sites were severely impacted as their food and learning materials were submerged by floodwater. The furniture was spoiled, and some outdoor equipment was swept away by the floods.
Plastic Omnium, Worldwide leader in automotive equipment and solutions, sent two representatives Cindy de Waal, CSR Champion at Plastic Omnium Auto Inergy, and Musa Ndebele, Logistic Co-ordinator at Plastic Omnium, to provide food and blankets to TREE’s two ECD centres in Kwadukuza-Stanger.
The two delegates in their branded shirts with ‘heart’ logos really lived up to their branding as their participation in the whole handover was the epitome of love and dedication. They engaged well with the practitioners and the children at the centres. The children connected to them very well and they sang and danced together.
The two ECD centres should have enough food for a period of three to four months. Both sites also received blankets which will come in handy this winter season.
