sumaya hisham-6435Children at Nkosi’s Haven opening their present on Christmas Day with Gail playing ‘Mother Christmas’.  

“The generosity of people never ceases to a amaze me with so many getting involved by taking the time out to shop for a present, wrap and label it  – making it all so very personal and special for each child, who’s faces just light up when their name is called to ‘fetch their presents from Father Christmas!”  


We are exceptionally grateful to Nina Venjakob who did her Annual Christmas Present drive to her entire data base – the responses was overwhelming  – thank  you all so very much.  


Mark and Nikki Garden who  annually twist the arms of everyone at Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs and Webber Wentzel Bowens firm of Attorneys delivered over 145 presents to the Haven which were brought down to the Village for Christmas Day  –  thank  you all so, so much for always remembering and caring for the children of Nkosi’s Haven  –  you are stunning.

Eriger ALWAYS remember the children and over 145 ‘lucky packets’ had been made up, relevant to age with stunning, practical goodies in and of course ‘sweeties’.

And many a private person dropped off presents for children of certain age groups or specific children that they have met during the year  – thank you!!
