Tetanda was born is Zimbabwe and is 16-years old. His mother abandoned him and he has never met his father. He is one of the residents in the Beulah Child and Youth Centre in Polokwane. He has a severe hearing defect.

ORIGINAL REQUEST:



Hi Breakfast team.



My name is Ruan and I would really like to bring to your attention the need of a children's home. My friends and I had a grade 10 school project and got involved with them to show the meaning of ubuntu. The children home's name is Beulah Child and Youth Centre in Polokwane. They were recently forced to move from the Tweefontein plots in Polokwane to Seshego zone 4 house 314, because they weren't equipped to handle 50 children. There are 19 kids left between the ages of 11 and 18-years. One of the children is partially deaf and struggles to hear. He still needs to undergo test, but it will cost around R10 000 for the hearing aids and that is money they don't have. Further more their new house still needs a lot of renovation!



Any help will be in order.

Thank you in advance!



Ruan de Ridder
