Renovations a soaring success

Cecile Ferreira headed the renovations for the crèche that Ruth Molefe will be in charge of.

An old crèche, once unsuitable for small children, celebrated a re-opening last week, all thanks to the Krugersdorp Flying Club.

Bokamoso Crèche now purely exists because of funding by donations from the members of the Krugersdorp Flying Club. From the paint on the walls, new floors and tables, to the curtains, toys and cots – the renovation of the crèche happened because there were underprivileged children who needed a safe place to grow and learn.

Cecile Ferreira, the club’s secretary, organised the project and even brought along some toys herself.

Ruth Molefe, co-founder of the Polekego Shelter for Abused Women and Children, where the crèche is based, said Cecile was sent to the shelter by God.

“We tried to renovate the crèche, but the funding was just never there. We thank everyone who made a contribution. The children will definitely enjoy it.”

After Ruth cut the ribbon to officially open the crèche, young and old enjoyed some snacks amid the freshly yellow-painted walls.

The Bokamoso Crèche will be home to young children of the women who take shelter at Polekego.
