The team from Aspen’s head office in Durban brought some cheer to the kids of the Ekusizaneni Children’s Home and the patients in the adjacent hospice!

In 2012, R100 000 was raised to provide for their needs and these funds ensured that the home was supplied with electricity, water and food for the year. In addition a new fridge / freezer, a new stove and other household items were also supplied.

The 2013 initiative again raised approximately R100 000 and some 50 children and patients will benefit from Aspen’s continued commitment to the Home. The team carried out activities such as painting the orphanage’s dining hall, the refurbishment of the jungle gym, creating a new chalkboard area, tending to the herb garden and planting additional vegetables. Blankets and toys were also donated and the children enjoyed a treat of snacks sponsored by local food outlet Nando’s and drinks.
